Lions and Tigers and Bears!



Not quite.


There were a couple of tigers at the zoo we visited this weekend!

So, how about...

Tigers and Foxes and Otters! Oh my!

On Saturday we decided to take an impromptu trip to my hometown. It's an hour away from where we live now and it's got a cute little zoo that I used to love when I was a kid. It's nice and small. Small enough to do the whole thing in 30 minutes if you want to. They've got some great exhibits and overall The Texas Zoo in Victoria, Texas makes for a fun and inexpensive afternoon.

The kids had a great time. The camera batteries did not. But, hubby was able to get a few great shots before they crapped out.

It was Snappy's first time at a zoo.

TRex used his pointer to help us with the exhibits.

I was happy to be on the other side of the camera and get to have fun with the kids.

They loved the monkeys.

TRex really liked the bird exhibit. I ran out as quickly as I could stood right there with him the whole time! I am terrified of just love birds!

Looking at the alligators. TRex was certain they were fake, even after being told a million times that they were just sleeping.

Snappy loved the tigers. We spent a lot of time at this part. It was amazing how close we were to them.

TRex really liked them too.

My wild things just loved looking at all those wild things!

Ah, the water fountain. Always a source of enjoyment for the kids. I guess I liked them a lot when I was a kid too. This is my fave pic from the day.

Afterwards we scarfed my favorite mexican food with my fam and I got to do a little shopping with my mom and sister in law. Ladies, the clearance section at Old Navy....drool worthy! I scooped up a couple more $3 tops (yes I was there a few weeks ago) and grabbed a nice shirt for the hubby.

It was a fantastic day. Sunny and just the right temperature. The kids had a blast and it was nice to get away.

What did you do this weekend?
