Picture overload

I'll tell you more about the trip later, but for now, here are just a handful (a big handful so grab a drink) of pictures from the trip. In short, we went to the Ft Worth zoo, camped in Arkansas with my dad and family, and then hit the Rain Forest Cafe on the way home. I have A LOT more camping pictures and family pictures, but I'll be uploading those on Myspace. If you've got me added then check them out there, if not, then you probably don't know everyone enough to care anyway. :) Enjoy!

The zoo!
It was SO humid and hot already and we were just in the front door! (That's me, not a fat giraffe in case you were wondering)

Everyone look at the cam! or not....

She loves the aquatic animals more than anyone there that day I promise you.

I thought he was dead, but he was just napping in the shade. (Thank you for moving a bit and letting me know!)

I think the zoo keepers handle this alligator by the nose entirely too much!

Pretending to be happy and not hot.

Penguins. Yes they stink and the water is really that color. *ba ba barf!*

I was jealous of her stroller!

Rhino has the right idea!

Scientist cracks a smile while observing bears.

Happy to be cool in an inside exhibit.

The boy loved the elephants best.

A bite to eat at Fuddruckers because our GPS (Carmen the Garmin) lead us to a Joe's Crab Shack that was temporarily closed. That's how she is.
Back at the good ol' Motel 8 lol
Little water baby!

My honey smiled "real hard" or got splashed. One of the two...

That's better!
He wrangles the smaller two while...
Miss Thang does a graceful handstand.
In the van, she takes a pic with the vanity cam.
Cutecumber hasn't quite grasped the concept that this is a face only her mother could love. If you click on it and look closer, she only has 3 teeth which really adds to the look lol
Miss Thang and her cousin getting soaked to stay cool!

Our Darth Vader tent
My Step mom added little fairies and birds throughout the clearing. So cute!

The scientist helps his uncle with a bad bug problem.
Cutecumber hangs in there despite the heat!
Got her wet and made her day!
Last night there, high on smores and sun burned cheeks. Looking like his daddy...
We stopped at the Rain Forrest Cafe on the way home. The waterfall is LOUD! but adored by children.

It was fun, and much needed, but I am glad to be back in my air conditioned home, in my desert dry town, in my much missed state of Texas. I'm refreshed and ready to take my life by the horns again. Getting away does that to you, and if you haven't done it yet, DO IT!


  1. Now you know how I feel everyday living here, we went to the Zoo not that long ago and I will tell you that that Hippo must be dead cause I could have taken a picture and it would have totally looked like yours lmao, ALSO cutecumber SOOOO cute in the last picture!!....Also, I wanted to add that Joe's Crab Shack hasnt been closed for a real long time but apparently it closed due to an infestation and they were cleaning it up so Carmen on Garmin is still right that it is there but if we want to go to Joe's we have to drive North up 820 and grab that one which is a little further away! Hope you enjoyed the Rainforest Cafe, it is my fav and we sat right in front of the fountain like you did and the worst part was all the waitstaff coming out yelling VOLCANO!! like every 5 minutes so it was hard to hear anything for us as well......hated that I couldnt see you but glad to see you had a blast anyways!! Cant wait to see more! Love you as always

  2. I want to go to a big zoo. Tomorrow, we are going to a local "dinky" zoo. It's better than nothing. Next Thurs, we are going to camp, overnight, locally, too. We have hubby's kids for 10 days and are trying to keep them busy. Looks like you had a good time. You look great in that dress, by the way.
