'Tour de Texas' - Part Two

Caleb took the girls and I to the famous Ft. Worth Zoo on Friday. We braved the 98 degrees (+ extreme humidity) and enjoyed ourselves very much, although we did spend a little longer than was absolutely necessary in the air conditioned penguin exhibit [smile!]

Yelena just hung out in the stroller, and took in the sights - all 3" of them - from underneath her hat...

Our favorite part was a goofy orangutan that was playing with a straw hat. After chewing off half the brim he tried to place it on the head of a buddy who was trying to sleep... that didn't go over too well.

Elise loved the birds...

Saturday morning, before getting ready for the wedding, we went Glen Rose, TX the home of approximately five dinosaur tracks. Well, five were all we found [smile!] They were under water - of all places! I would have thought the river would have worn them away....

Next time we head back to TX, we're going there again! And this time we are bringing water-walkers and swimsuits, maybe even a tube or two! To get to the second set of tracks people have to wade across the river. Most never make it, they're too busy playing in the water!

I like the last photo, of the whole family! I have followed your blog on and off the last few years.
I enjoyed the courtship story and wedding posts too. :-)

Have a blessed day in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! 1 Peter 1:4-9
