Our Trip to the Zoo

Ok, so it only took 8 days of trying, but here are the long awaited pictures from our trip to the Dallas zoo!

We got up bright and early and drove down to the DART rail station closest to our house and hopped on. Caleb loved riding the train! We'll do this again!

Here are Jes and Caleb ready to go in and see all the animals!

Caleb LOVES monkeys of all types. He walks around saying, " ooo, ahahah, ooo, ahahah", eg the sounds a monkey would make. He was initially scared of these statues, but Daddy saved the day and sat in the picture too!

Caleb and Daddy looking at the Meerkats (there's one on top of that tall mound)

This is really strange, but Caleb gets the biggest kick out of sticking his head in these things. We have multiple pictures of him like this from Halloween and such. He's an otter here!

The other animal that Caleb is itrigued with are lions. He loves to growl like the lions and he was super excited to see one! He growled at the lion for a little while. We had to drag him away so others could get close!

Daddy and Caleb with the elephants. He didn't really know what to think of these!

The giraffes were also very interesting to Caleb. His eyes got really wide when they stuck out their tongues to grab leaves from the trees!

The Dallas zoo has a great Children's area. Here are Daddy and Caleb feeding the fish!

Caleb got to pet a bunny,

and a guinea pig!

He even got to ride a horse!

We went into the JC Penney House and Caleb worked on a few puzzles while Daddy and Mommy took a rest!

There is also a little lagoon in the Children's area. Caleb LOVED splashing around in here, even though the water was quite cold. Daddy followed close behind!

We then got back on the train and rode back to our car where Caleb crashed before we even made it to the street! All in all, it was a great trip and we can't wait to go back!
