Hakuna Matata

What an awesome day! Reese, Mason and I headed out the door this morning on a mission to the Ft. Worth Zoo. We had a BLAST! They are at such a great age for stuff like that. They had so much fun being in the double stroller, hopping out together at every exhibit then seeing who could get back in the fastest. It's amazing someone didn't come home with a bloody nose after all the elbows that were flyin' trying to get into that stroller. We had no agenda...we could stop for potty breaks as often as we wanted, take our time seeing our favorite animals. It was great. We got to eat our disgusting, I mean super healthy Burger King lunch outside on the picnic tables which was fun. (Being outside..not the lunch). It was just an overall wonderful day with no worries. We even had time to stop by the mall on our way home. Bonus!

I do have to say...did you realize it was already time for Santa to be on his perch at the mall? What the? We haven't even celebrated Turkey Day yet! Maybe it just doesn't feel right because it was 75 degrees today. There were people running around in shorts and flip flops at the zoo for crying out loud! Santa...sheesh. Needless to say, Mr. Claus was rapidly fanning himself as he paced around the North Pole set-up. Hot flashes??? Maybe. Maybe next year he will wait until AFTER Thanksgiving to spread the jolly joy. We can only hope.

Mason was really good about "reading" the map
and telling us where to go next.

Still waiting for the choo-choo train.

I think this was Mason's favorite part of the day - the train ride!

Glad y'all had such a great day! They are so precious! I'm not sure I'd take on the zoo with more than 1 kid by myself! You're such a great mom!
