We took Jacob to the same zoo almost exactly a year ago, and my goodness- what a difference a year makes! We had SUCH a fun time! And Jacob thoroughly enjoyed himself. He pointed out all the animals, told us what each animal says, and ran totally wild the entire trip. We were exhausted by the end. Here's a photo recap.
This gorilla was waving to everyone from behind the plexiglass. It was so silly and cool! We all stood there for 10 minutes just waving at home, hoping he'd waved back. Which he did several times. He probably thought we were all idiots! Ha!
My favorite part of the trip, and probably everyone else's too, was this lion.
At first he was laying down up above, so we barely saw him. But then he sat up, popped up, walked down to his bowl of water, and then out to this ledge in front of all of us. And then ROARED!!! It was seriously one of the coolest things I've ever seen, and luckily- I got it on video. Enjoy...
The Fort Worth zoo has a large bird cage thingy where you can buy sticks with bird seed on them and feed the birds. The dads and kids went in, and totally loved it!
After the zoo, we headed to Fred's Texas Cafe to meet-up with Josh's dad and for some yummy cheeseburgers. Jacob had a lot of fun hanging out with his Grandpa!
And yes, Jacob has a black eye. Ugh. He fell on Friday, and hit his head on a concrete planter. I think I stopped breathing for a few seconds. He cried for awhile, but he's fine now! And looks really tough. Apparently, the chicks dig it...?
