The Houston Zoo in August

Even though it was ridiculously hot (81 degrees and probably 80% humidity and climbing as we left our house at 8AM) the boys and I decided to make a trip to the zoo this morning. We hadn't been in almost a month so we decided it was time to make a quick visit. Plus, we wanted to check out the new baby giraffe born a week ago.
That is the joy of having a membership, we can make a short trip and not feel as if we spent too much money for just an hour or two there. The neat thing about this visit was that Luke finally seemed to notice the animals and enjoyed watching them.
He wasn't too thrilled with the petting zoo goat when it got up in his face, but otherwise, he was very interested in checking things out.
Of course, the highlight of any zoo trip for the boys is the snacks. The moment we step foot in the zoo, Jacob is asking for snacks, even if he just ate 5 min before. Luke happily ate his snacks during the entire visit too. If things work out, we may be back at the zoo later this week with my friend Lisa and her brood. Better make sure I have enough snacks to pack...
