dallas zoo

Today, we joined our friends at the Dallas Zoo. Erin and her son Hudson, and Maren and her daughter, Tessa, and Mags and I all took the DART to the zoo. It was about a 35 minute ride there and back and was an enjoyable experience overall; this was my first DART ride. It made me miss Chicago's public transportation system. We arrived not long after it opened, in order to see as much as we could before it got too hot. But, it was already pretty hot when we arrived, so we tried to do as much as we could right away. We took the African Safari tram, saw the chimps and mandrills, and went into the reptile house. This place proved to be quite frightening to Maggie and she did not want to be near the glass of the snake habitats. I don't blame her! :) After lunch, we headed home. It was enjoyable overall, but definitely an activity to be done in other months of the year.

Last stop before lunch--the giraffe


  1. Looks like fun!! I can't until it's cooler here, and we can visit the Phoenix zoo again. The girls loved it there. :) Zoe has the same shoes as Mags, except hers are purple. :)

  2. The zoo is so fun! We have a pass to the SD zoo and LOVE it! Wish we were there with you!
