Fabulous Fun Family Day

Pin It With all the stress of late, we decided to take a Friday and head off for some family fun. We went to the zoo in Houston. OHMY, we could not have asked for a better day! The weather was beautiful, the animals weren't too shy ... except the elusive red panda I would have loved to have seen, the children were cooperative. Oh, and an added bonus, the zoo is FREE for military families, that was a blessing! I can see more zoo trips in our future!

Brendan's preferred method of moving through ... well, anywhere.

Yummy yummy cotton candy!

Madelyn was nesting.

These two children of mine are so close! She's the greatest big sister ever.

Mooching another ride, this time from Gabbi.

I just thought this pic was funny. They're both sitting/kneeling the exact same way.

An added bonus of this trip was getting to meet a long time online friend for the first time in real life. We were trying to figure out how long it had been that we'd known each other. We decided that Gabbi was a baby, so about ten years! It was such a treat to meet her and her family. She is every bit as fabulous as I knew she would be, and her children were so kind and patient with my children. You can go to her blog and see more pictures and find out about their exciting life!

I think this day will go down in history as one of the best days ever. :)

Don't you *love* those family days that are just enjoyable from beginning to end? And how fun that you have another friend in an RV full-time; or should I pity that you're surrounded with us strange, nonconformist types? =D

Days like this are not soon forgotten, often much needed and then I always ask why we don't do this more. I love picture of the men kneeling. Too cute.
