Well, I tried to to let Ryan finish his blog.... but he has seemed to forget about it, so I will pick up on the tale of our mini vacation get away.
We visited Glen Rose, Texas to attend a family reunion for my mom's side of the family. Glen Rose is known for it's dinosaurs... so naturally, we had to visit Dinosaur World while in town.
After our trip to the Jurassic era, we headed over to Dallas to visit some old friends. We took the kids to the Dallas zoo, and while they might not have as many animals as some other zoos... the exhibits were great and we were able to get up close and personal with a lot of the animals.
These are my favorite pictures. This Mandrill just came up and started interacting with Kai and Andrew. Here Kai is pretending to scratch his nose like the mandrill. Then, when he saw Andrew, the mandrill put his hand up on the window and they had a moment. It was super cool!!
Here are few more pics at the zoo.
If you have kids I would definitely recommend buying a membership to the Houston zoo. It was $85, but you get unlimited visits to the zoo, plus you get into more than 100 other zoo free, including the Dallas zoo, the San Antonio zoo, and the Aquarium in Corpus Cristi. It is a great deal!!
