Cameron woke up yesterday morning with a plan. She came downstairs with a solid case of bedhead and very drowsily asked, "do we have any plans today?" When I told her we didn't, she said, "well, I'd really like to go to the Dallas Zoo today." So we made it happen!
|First stop, the penguins. She's almost as tall as the emperor penguin.|
|These little guys were waddling around all over the place and so cute to watch.|
|Some of my very favorites were up next, though. There was even a baby elephant this time!|
|It was such a gorgeous day to be outside. Cami and Gigi both agreed.|
|Next up, the giraffes. And guess what? There was baby giraffe! |
Y'all. One of the cutest baby animals ever.
|We bought some giraffe food and Betty the Giraffe immediately came over to see us.|
|Cami fed her first...|
|then told Gigi to "be brave" and do it, too. Gigi had never fed one before--so cool!|
|That big smile says it all.|
|Then my little monkey and I went over to see the ostriches, zebras and guineas.|
|After that, we got to see the daddy lion, along with the mama and baby cub. |
Such impressive animals.
"Hey mom, look at me!"
|The gorillas were after that and there were so many roaming around. |
This big silverback was the first one that we saw.
|We found this guy right up at the glass...|
|not so sure he wanted to be our friend. Look at that stare!|
|As much as this kid liked seeing the real gorillas, playing with the statue was just as entertaining.|
|After lunch, we headed over to the brand new Hippo Hut.|
|It was fantastic and at least 100% improvement from the previous hippo exhibit.|
|More statue happiness. This girl simply enjoys life.|
|We ended our afternoon with a train ride around the zoo. Such a fabulous, impromptu day. |
We should have more of those before she goes to Kindergarten!
