Ft. Worth

A few weekends ago, we made a trip down to Ft Worth with my mother-in-law to visit Stephen’s brother and sister-in-law, Christopher’s Uncle Jim and Aunt Cristin.

Christopher was a great car rider and I was so proud of him for making the long 5hr+ trip. He has become a great trip-taker within just the last few months, and let me tell ya… I’m so thankful! The days of crying and screaming from the car seat were not fun.

That evening after we got there, we all met up with Stephen’s aunt, uncle, and cousins, the Snyder family. We ate at Joe T. Garcia’s, which was a really neat atmosphere and we had a lot of funning sitting on the patio talking and laughing and catching up!

On Friday morning, we went to the Ft Worth Zoo. This was Christopher’s first trip to the zoo, and I think that he really enjoyed it!  I was very impressed with the Ft Worth Zoo and I can definitely see us making several more trips there in the future! It was also nice for me because there is plenty of shade throughout the zoo, instead of the sun beaming down on top of us the whole time. (I can get overheated and sick very quickly.)

We saw all different kinds of animals at the zoo…

This was a neat indoor area for the gorillas.

This was a neat bird sanctuary. When I took this picture, I was standing outside of it, but  you can go in and feed the birds. I didn’t feel like getting pooped on, so we didn’t go in. Maybe some other time! There were HUNDREDS of birds in there!

Christopher got a free ice cream cone! He loved it!

He loved this area where you could put your hands in and feel different things. (Above) He also liked feeling different types of fur/skin and then finding out what it belonged to! (Below)

We had a great time at the zoo!

This post is getting long, so I am going to finish the rest of our trip in a separate post!
