This past November we bought a membership to the Dallas Zoo. So with a couple nice weather days recently, we went to the zoo with some of our friends.
The first visit we went with our friend Lorelei and our cousins Ollie, Griffin & Eliana.

Amelia liked seeing the animals too.
Thank goodness this was an alligator statue!

For whatever reason, Jack thought it seemed like a good idea to kiss the gorilla statue.

This was my favorite part of the children's area of the zoo. It was a giant birds nest in the play area. Worked perfectly for letting Amelia walk around some but also kept her contained. This was just what we both needed at the end of our busy day at the zoo.
Our next trip to the zoo (just yesterday) was with our friends Grace & Noah.

We got to see the gorilla pretty up close this visit.
Another alligator ride.
Right before leaving Jack got the chance to pet a snake. He LOVED being able to do that and kept asking to pet it over and over again. Such a brave boy!
