The Fort Worth Zoo is one of the best we’ve been to so far. Big, beautiful, lush, green–sweet. But let me back up.
I know I’ve repeated myself on here a hundred times already. I blogged about all these new friends two weeks ago while we were staying with them, and now I’m talking about all of them again. Well, I don’t want to bore you, but if you missed the post I wrote from Trey and Amy’s living room in Dallas, go read it. What a night!
I met Amy on Facebook. She and Trey are awesome. And Hannah (8) and Becca (4)–delightful. Hannah was born on Gabe’s birthday and is exactly one week older than Livi. They were kindred spirits from the get-go, and I ache for Livi to have a friend like that here. Hannah, do you want to come live with us?? That girl cracked us up nonstop. And gave up her Perfect Attendance Award at school to go to the zoo with us! Her mama says she’ll be so excited to read about herself on my blog again. Hi, Hannah!
And can’t leave out Miss Becca. (Gail, she reminds me MUCH of Josie!) Sweet, cute as anything, and all kinds of fun. They were perfect companions for our girls, and we all had so much fun together!
Love you, Amy! Can’t wait to see you again!
Note: I have a few pics from Trey and Amy’s house to post, but I’m going to save them for tomorrow (Dallas Zoo). There are just too many fab pics of the Fort Worth Zoo.
Zoo #27. (pic taken w/mini-tripod and self-timer)
Poor rhino. What a rough life.
Amy and I and our girly-girls.
A rare giraffe-turtle encounter. Happy ending? You’ll have to read the book!
This pic is enough to bring tears to my eyes.
Have I mentioned that I love orangutans?
Nina pointed out every single Texas outline we saw. So, like, 43 thousand or so.
Is that all he thinks about?
Wells Fargo. An unhappy reminder that I need to pay the mortgage.
But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not grow faint. (Isaiah 40:31)
The girls took this verse to heart. We did the Fort Worth Zoo, then drove an hour to the Dallas Zoo, did that whole thing, drove 2 hours to Jack and Kaye’s, and they blabbered and jabbered the whole way without sleeping a wink. Didn’t go to bed until midnight. Craziness.
Up tomorrow–more bluebonnet and mattress pics and the Dallas Zoo! Have a wild Wednesday!
