Time With Friends at the Zoo!

We made it out to the Zoo this morning with some friends and their little girl this morning.  It was such fun... they have passes to the zoo, so they knew where to take us where we could catch everything we needed with the least amount of random walking.  It was AWESOME.

We saw penguins...

All Dex wanted to do was pull Kate around in the stroller.  He wasn't that fast, if you can believe it.

Looking at the monkeys!!

How cute is Kate??  (even if she's wearing a Longhorn hat)  :)

We rode the "train"...

This pelican was on the tracks and would NOT move.  The driver was seriously nudging it with the tram, and he'd hop a couple feet and sit there again.  Pretty funny, except without the wind from the tram movement, it was SWELTERING.  I was about ready to run that dang thing over after about 10 minutes!

Toddler-size elephant :)

Probably one of Dex's favorite things there... driving the car.  And there was genuine, actual cheetah RIGHT behind him!  Although I must say, I was very proud of him for sharing *his* car with the other kids.  I don't think he had one meltdown about it!!

Really??  When did they start letting people this close to the animals?!  Soooo cool!  

I have no words to caption this... But I think it's hilarious.  And awesome :)

And then... on to feeding the fish!! 

He was fearless, I tell ya.  He put those fingers down IN the water, still holding the food.  Koi don't have teeth, right?

And finally, before we left, we got to ride the carousel.  Dex scouted it out before we got on, and decided he wanted to ride the "monkey."  He LOVED it.  I don't know if I can explain how much, but seriously.  LOVED.  IT.

I love this last picture of Kate and her Mommy.  Kate's face is priceless  :)
