We were warned not to attempt the Fort Worth Zoo and the Dallas Zoo in the same day. Our schedule didn’t allow much wiggle room though, and it actually wasn’t too bad. We had heard that the Dallas Zoo was nothing to write home about. I’m happy to report that it was better than I thought it would be. But sad to say that it didn’t hold a candle to Fort Worth. I will say that they’re making plans and working hard to expand and grow and beautify the zoo. It should be a top-notch zoo in a couple years or so.
The girls enjoyed the monorail–a great, relaxing way to see a zoo! And the folks at DZ gave us lots of free carousel tickets, so the girls rode it over and over and over. And loved every minute of it. Besides Gabe getting stung on the tongue by a bee (true story), we had a great afternoon at the zoo!
Zoo #28. Thank you, mini-tripod!
Penguins are fun.
The carousel had a “nest.” Think Disney Tea Cup Ride.
Is there anything uglier than an albino crocodile? EDIT: Yes, there is. An albino alligator, which is what this fine animal actually is. My bad.
All kinds of happy.
We love to hear people identify this animal. (It’s an okapi.)
Coolest McDonald’s EVER.
Amy and me in a Blue Sea of Delight.
What a bunch of goofballs.
Better than sledding.
Taking a day off tomorrow. From Zoo Posts, not the blog. It’s GIVE-AWAY TIME again, friends! You’re going to like this one–fun, sassy, personalized! Happy Thursday! See you tomorrow!
