Before heading to the Grapevine Fireworks on the 4th of July, we headed to the Fort Worth Zoo. Lennox woke up excited to head out to see the animals. She was decked out in red white and blue as well. Check out this cute dress that her Mimi made! I think the sunglasses just put the cuteness over the top!
We saw some of her favorite animals including the Meerkats….
The giraffes… the baby is getting big!
The “baby” (aka 17 years old) elephant. Her name is Bluebonnet and she was the first one born at this zoo. Her mama is there too who I believe is in her 40′s.
Every time we go to the zoo, we always take a picture with the elephants. It’s fun to have the same photos over and over to watch how Lennox has grown!
Lennox was so excited to see the Hippos!Lennox and I also went into the bird area and fed the parrots. Dad had to stay outside, I don’t think Lennox could EVER convince him to go in there. Lennox had fun feeding all of them too.
Lastly, before heading out – the zookeeper had a snake out and I was surprised that Lennox actually went up and touched it! Dad did too – mom on the other hand, I stayed way, thank you very much!We love heading to the zoo – it’s fun to see Lennox get excited for all the animals!
As I mentioned in my Mother’s Day post, we headed to Dallas to check out the new Perot Museum of Nature and Science.
I wanted to share some of the photos from the trip with Lennox. To be a kid again and to use your imagination so much; at times, I’m so jealous of her!
Lennox pretending to be a “fireman”. Don’t tell her she really is a road construction worker!
Doing some grocery shopping at the “farmers market” where she could pick out some great fruit and veggies, pay for them, sort them and bag them up!
Watching snakes with daddy and asking LOTS of questions!
Learning all about locks and how they work with the Great Lakes! Hey, maybe even I learned something
And check out her reaction here while Kyle was racing Felix Jones in the sports exhibit. Kyle lost by .01 second, that’s pretty good! Lennox was cheering her on and so proud of her daddy!
Lennox and I racing a T-Rex. They may be big and move slowly but they have HUGE steps so we had no chance in beating it! But Lennox could pretend to be a dinosaur, nevertheless!
