A "Roaring" Good Time

If you haven't been to the San Antonio Zoo, you are missing out.  It really is a great Zoo and so much better than I remember it being 15 years ago.  Kathryn, Lisa and I decided to take the kids on Thursday.  We were all so excited but as you can see, I guess the Zoo meant alot more to the thirty-somethings in the group than it did to the 8 month, 10 month and 12 month old! 

Two pieces of advice:  #1) Go online to http://www.saattractions.com/ and print off a coupon.  #2) Be prepared to sweat bullets while you're there.  I wouldn't recommend going in July, August or September since its so dang HOT outside.  We were there at 9am and within minutes, I was wondering why I showered before I went.  BLA-ZING!

I hope in a couple of years, our Zoo outing will induce a little more excitement.  I guess seeing an elephant for the first time in your life isn't too thrilling!
arriving for our adventure - don't they look pumped?

at least the grown-ups were excited

"look harps and field!  a bear!"
"uh, whatever...." 

"look annabelle!  a rhinoceros!"
"huh, big whoop..."

"look field!  a wild dog!"
"oh, i'm more impressed by belle, my dog at home" 
"look squirrel! its an alligator!"
"um, great.  do they have any kitties here?"

"harps - see the bird, the elephant, the monkey, the bear and that african...what the heck is that???"
"so, can i go home and take a nap now?"

Hahahaha! Love it. Next time, let's make our playdate much simpler. Clearly the little ones were not impressed. They will be in a few years!
