Monkey Goes to the Zoo!!!

A couple of weekends ago we met up with my sweet parents and sister, Greta, in San Antonio. This past Christmas our family focused on togetherness gifts, and our gift from my folks was a weekend trip to the zoo in San Antonio...sort of our "half-way" point in between both of our homes. Needless to say those types of gifts are the best, time with family is always a blessing, and making memories to enjoy for years to come is the best type of gift investment! Thank you SO much, Dad & Mom, for the fantastic weekend that you planned for us! It was amazing!

Like most little kids, Johnathan loves animals...he enjoys reading about them in his books, seeing the simple variety that we have outside our door, and watching them in movies. So, needless to say I knew that he would have a blast seeing the animals that he's read about in real life. And, just as I predicted, he LOVED his first trip to the zoo! I had so much fun watching him look at all the animals...and the more he asked "more a-mals" the happier I got. It was just the best!

Here we are enjoying the zoo & the rest of our fun trip in San Antonio, Texas!

We got to watch the trainers feed the alligators...it was pretty cool, and man, those things make some very scary hissing noises!

After a little rest following our trip to the zoo we got ready to go walk around the Riverwalk on the way to our dinner destination.

Tell me that these guys don't look alike! I LOVE this picture! Like father, like son!

Driving home Sunday afternoon...what a sweet boy...he LOVES his "Croaker" and "chupi" at naptime!

Thank you again Dad and Mom for the wonderful gift! We enjoyed ourselves tremendously and had the best time hanging out with you all! LOVE YOU, BIG TIME!!!!!!!!
