The Girls 1st visit to the Zoo

We took Rachel, Haley and Kayla to the Houston Zoo today (Saturday).  This was their first visit to the Zoo.  It has been raining a lot here in Houston and we needed to get out of the house.  The chance of rain today was high, but we took the risk and hoped we wouldn't get rained on.  We did get caught in the rain while at the zoo, but for only about 45 minutes.  We just took cover and waited.  Besides the rain, we had a good time.  We look forward to going back to the Zoo in the future.

The Girls saw Lions and Tigers and Bears, Oh My!  Since it was cloudy and rainy, the animals were just lounging around or sleeping.  I don't blame them.  I would be sleeping too!




We saw the Giraffes too.

  1. Looks like you managed to have a great time, and the rain didn't dampen the enjoyment! Great place to visit.

  2. So fun!! Lots of great photos. I love the zoo! :)

  3. I'm glad you had a chance to get out of the house with the girls. Looks like they enjoyed their first visit to the zoo. The pictures are beautiful!

  4. That looks like a wonderful day! Have you investigated any of the "all inclusive" parks around Houston? Not that the girls 'need' such but it might provide wonderful environments for them to explore. I saw this blog and these locations online
