We became members of the Houston Zoo last March. We only went a few times. To be honest the zoo is OK, not at all as exciting as the St. Louis Zoo. I don't say that to offend anyone just to point out that I have been disappointed in the zoo here. I know that the zoo has been worked on for over 100 years so I bet that this zoo just has some more growing and developing to do. That being said we became members and had to join at a high level to get enough tickets for the entire family. I find that so offensive. I am not a grandparent but I have to buy a grandparent pass for just my kiddos. Then the heat of where we live means that I just don't wake up in the morning and suggest we head to the zoo. So on the 7th day of January I surprised the kiddos and did just that. The weather was delightful. It was in between two cold fronts and temps were around 70. Perfect for walking around. We kept cool but not cold, certainly not hot!
WE crawled in tubes and looked at fish.
We saw snakes, crocs and frogs. Walk walk walk.
We also saw some monkeys and apes. Look one of my own is swinging from the vines. So proud.
So we all know that the homeschool world will start back up soon and these adventures will stop, but this was the perfect day.
Love those kiddos! They were my favorite creatures at the zoo.
