I love the zoo!

I hit up the Dallas Zoo again a few weeks ago.  This time I was with Mommy, Daddy, Gramma, and Grampa. 

While we were there, I taught my whole family some very important lessons about outings with 3 year olds:

1. Go without an agenda.
You never know when a preschooler is gonna want to stop and "pet" the lizard statues.

Or spend a looooong time in the "river".

2. Expect to see about 10% of what you would with older kids.
And anticipate that we may be captivated by things that aren't very "zooish"...

 like these koi...

or run-of-the-mill goats.

3. Call it a day well before the little one gets cranky! 

  (I really wasn't cranky in the picture below.  Mommy just thought it was funny that I was trying to spray the zoo's Mister Fan with Gramma's mini mister fan.)

Thankfully, everyone was super chill that day and more than happy to follow the 3 guidelines above. 

I think we all had a great time (although Mommy did get a bit hot with all that extra insulation)!

We really enjoyed that day. Everyone was relaxed and had fun.
