Sunday at the Houston Zoo

We recently spent a Sunday morning at the Houston Zoo. I have mixed emotions about zoos but the one in Houston is what every zoo should strive to become. The animals are in beautiful habitats with plenty of room to roam. There are 6,000 animals being fed, given top-notch medical care, and housed in a safe environment. They all appeared healthy and content. It was wonderful watching our granddaughters see the enormous animals in real life!
The flamingo enclosure was gorgeous!

  The best leaves are obviously right here...
 
The ostriches live with the giraffe. They seem rather oblivious to one another, but I’d like to imagine a couple of them are best friends.
  The giraffe have a lot of interactive things in their area to keep them entertained.
  These monkeys were excellent rope walkers! 
  This meerkat was so cute and scampered all over the stumps.
  A weem-a-weh, a weem-a-weh, a weem-a-weh
In the zoo, the Houston zoo the lion sleeps today.
I've loved elephants my entire life. Words can’t describe how excited I was to see this adorable baby elephant!!
If you are planning a visit to the Houston area, be sure to add the fabulous Houston Zoo to your agenda. You might remember the awesome Christmas light display we shared earlier this year. I’m looking forward to making many memories at the zoo with our granddaughters.

  3. We have a fancy zoo just a few miles from our house. Mom has gone there a few times with friends who have kids. It too is a modern zoo with space to roam, etc. She loves seeing all the animals.

  7. Love your photos. Today's zoos give children (and adults) an understanding and appreciation for wildlife.

  8. Wish we could visit the zoo too! Mom is waiting for the grands to have a day off before it gets too warm to take them to our KC Zoo.

  9. We love zoos like that. We have one just up the road. Some mornings we can hear the Siamang Apes hooting. If there have to be zoos. Open area ones are the best.

  11. Clapping wildly over your Zoo pictures. I'm a big fan of the Animal Planet Bronx Zoo or any Zoo shoe. I'm becoming quite infatuated with Giraffes.What expressive eyes
