The Houston Zoo

After spending three days with some great friends, Luke took MK and I to meet up with his family. We all met up for the three day weekend to have some fun and celebrate. Luke went back home so that he could be at church, but we enjoyed the awesome Houston Zoo while he was gone.
I am such a people watcher so I was a little distracted by all the zoo goers. I love to watch the way families interact when they don't think anyone is watching. I stood back and watched as everyone pointed out all the animals to Madelyn, held her up so that she could see and carried her when she was tired. I couldn't help but think that if there was another people watcher in the mix like myself, then they must have known that Madelyn was loved so much. Six adults. One wide eyed little girl. Having fun and enjoying time together.
MK was really in to the animals.
It was so hot, but didn't feel too bad because of all the trees providing shade.
Madelyn walked most of it with us until she started to crash. I don't blame her at all though, it was a big zoo!
My little monkey and I posing together. I think she enjoyed the monkeys and birds the best.

My favorite was the sweet baby elephant.
I think more than anything, she loved spending time with Gigi, Papa, Great Granny, Aunt Kenda and Michael. She knows how to say everyone's names now in the family. The whole way to the zoo she was saying Michael's name. The minute we were around him, she wouldn't even try. She was so shy!
Carousel ride number two of the weekend with Gigi!

Everyone had so much fun!
