It seems like a lifetime ago that we showed up at Elizabeth’s Oklahoma doorstep, devoured her to-die-for poppyseed chicken, chilled with the fam, then headed to the Tulsa Zoo. It was actually two weeks ago today. Before I tell you all about falling in love with Elizabeth and her darling brood, let me give you an overview of how these zoo posts are going to go.
I’ll share some pics and some brief details, but I can’t give out too much, or I’ll have nothing saved back for the book. That would stink, huh? Juicy details coming your way, bound and printed, sometime in 2010.
And before I forget–Matt Gleason, feature writer for the Tulsa World, met us at the zoo, interviewed us, and the article appeared in Sunday’s paper. So fun! You can read it here. Thanks, Matt!!
So, I knew instantly that I would love Elizabeth, and we had some really neat talks, and her blog is really cool–fun, real, sweet. I know you’ll like it. Here’s the post she wrote about our visit. and a neat post she wrote later called “We’re All Important.”
Love you, Elizabeth! Thank you for opening your home, your heart, and your bag of Chick-Fil-A minis!

Cutest little show-off baby chimp ever.
Cutest little boy EVER. I must have him for Ava.
I heart giraffes.

And there you have it! Zoo #25–The Tulsa Zoo and Living Museum. And a special thank you to Angela Evans, PR and Marketing Coordinator for the Tulsa Zoo, who welcomed us so warmly–and showered us with tickets, train and carousel rides, Tulsa Zoo ball caps for Gabe and me and stuffed lemurs, magnetic puzzles and Tulsa Zoo bracelets for the girls. Thanks, Angela!!
Oklahoma City Zoo and Megan coming tomorrow! Have a great Monday!
