We spent Friday morning at the zoo. This was our third trip since the girls were born. Brandon had planned to take Friday off of work so that we could go as a family. We are finding that for certain activities, we really have to plan in advance to make it happen, so plan in advance we did. It was a blast and despite the heat, the girls had a great time. (You would have never known Clara was sent home from school early on Thursday with a 103.3 fever and double ear infections. Ear infections don't stop this girl, at least not when a trip to the zoo is in jeopardy.) The zoo has a splash pad which was especially enjoyable because we live in Houston and summer is like a 24/7 sauna. Have I mentioned it is hot?
Camille needed mommy to crawl through the tunnel with her. . .
Jellyfish were a big hit. . .
The great thing about a splash pad in the Houston zoo in the summer is you don't even have to change your kids into a swim suit because their clothes will dry off in approximately two seconds. Win.
Saturday we joined the Joiners and Olivers at the Magnolia Pool, a fun toddler friendly neighborhood pool. I questioned if the girls would enjoy the slides there, and within seconds Camille proved to have zero fear (and went down the slide approximately 15x), while Clara was not so sure. Clara's face was pretty priceless so we need to pay another visit there soon, just to capture her expressions on video. Our water fun was cut a little short when a random kid decided to poo in the pool. . . fun times!
Make it a great week!
