Zoo Day

Austin’s parents and youngest sister Casey came to Dallas for the day on Saturday.  They brought me a gorgeous bouquet of flowers. So sweet of them!

We drove to Grapevine for lunch and to walk around a little bit.  Austin had been up that way recently and thought it would be fun for us to see it and eat there.  It was a very cute area, and the downtown reminded me a little bit of Fredericksburg – lots of cute shops and restaurants.

Casey and I insisted on a Starbucks stop on the way back to Dallas…

We decided to check out the Dallas Zoo on Saturday afternoon.  Somehow, Austin and I have lived here for almost 2 years and have never been.  We have always said “Oh, we should go to the zoo sometime…” but never actually gone.  The weather was perfect for a zoo day on Saturday, and it was a great way to enjoy being outside and get some exercise!

This guy looked just a little scary… He also had gray hair and looked like an old man!

We all were tempted to break out in “The Star Spangled Banner” when we came across this guy.

And the best for last – the sweet and cuddly koala bear! 

We highly recommend the Dallas Zoo for a fun Saturday.  And, during January and February, admission is only $5.  Can’t beat that with a stick! 

Our Sunday was spent mostly at church, as usual, and it was refreshing and relaxing – just like a Sunday should be.  We did venture to Best Buy (loathe that place) to upgrade our phones yesterday afternoon, and I’m pretty excited about having the iPhone 4S.  I ordered this cute case from Emily Ley last night, and I can’t wait for it to get here!
