Cale’s First Trip to the Zoo!

Last night we went to the Houston Zoo.  It was an unusually perfect weather day – 73 degrees and slightly overcast.  We took full advantage of it and took our kids to the Houston Zoo since there are so many days out of the year that it is simply too hot to go.  We met our friends, Micah, Kathy and Baby Micah.  We had a great time!021.2

Claire, of course, named the lions Simba and Nala and kept trying to get them to wake up.024.2

We all loved the giraffes!041.2

Claire loved the elephants, as always.009.2

Then Claire and Baby Micah rode the carousel.  Claire wanted to ride the tiger.  Micah wanted to ride everything and kept moving around from animal to animal.046.2

Claire didn’t waive, but she did yell out “Hi, Meecah!”  Meecah is what she has started calling Baby Micah’s daddy, Micah, Sr.

We saw several more animals and played on the playground.  We had a great time!

After the zoo, we went to dinner at Lupe Tortilla!  It was SO yummy!

Cale stayed awake the entire time we were at the zoo and almost made it through dinner without falling asleep.  He really had a great time, as did we all.
