What a Zoo!

Today was zoo day!  We took the crew to the Fort Worth Zoo for our little "spring break vacation."

The kids were so excited about going "out of town," and Clare even said, "Do they speak English in Fort Worth?"  Perhaps we need to take our kids out of town more often...

We got to the zoo right when it opened, and we set off to see the sights!



The obligatory flamingo picture....


The girls had a great time reading the map.  Clare was always telling us what was coming.

Graham is such a trooper.  He never fusses (except in the church nursery, but that's another post.)  He hung out in the stroller most of the day, and was quite happy.

Despite the increasing crowds as the day went on, we found a nice, quiet place to have our lunch. 

Jane's favorite animal was one of the tropical birds, Clare liked the hippos, Sydney's favorites were the zebras.  I don't have any pictures of those animals, but I do have one of this guy....
 

Combine spring break with half-price admission day and you get a TON of people who want to go to the zoo.  Thankfully, we got there early and saw most of the stuff before it got too packed.

Check out the crowds....
 

When I saw this...

....and this...

I knew we had worn ourselves out! 
It was time to hit the road.  We had a great day.  The weather was nice, the kids enjoyed it, and we are home to sleep in our own beds.  Not a bad vacation, if you ask me!
