Family Vacation Part 1:

Sunday, June 13, 2010

To begin our little vacation we went to the Dallas Zoo. The drive to the resort is about 4 hours, so we thought we would take Savi to the zoo in the morning and really wear her out. That way she would sleep most of the way down there. We packed up everything for the trip, and of course it looked like we were leaving for Europe:) We got to the zoo right when it opened. Savannah was very interested in all the animals this year. She did so good and I think she really enjoyed it! Every time we would leave certain animals, she would say "bye bye birdies (flamingos) or bye bye monkeys." They had this whole new exhibit called Savanna! It was really cool. It was like you were really in Africa and looking out into the open plains. And you could feed and pet the giraffes! Here are some of our pictures from the day.....

She was starting to get tired in the pic above...
I love this bench. I have a pic in it each time we go to the zoo!
This is pregnant with Savi...
Then we went last year in the summer:)
And here we are this year!
Definitely my daughter:) We are learning about butterflies!
Butterflies are all around.

So our plan worked. Literally as we are walking out to the car she is ready to go to sleep on my shoulder:) There is a special zoo themed McDonalds right outside the zoo that we took her to. She perked up for a happy meal and then was in and out of sleep for the next 4 hours before we could even get on the highway. She was a dream on the way down. Not a peep from her. Next will be our time at the resort....aka..more pictures;)
