We were looking at the calendar one day and realized that we were getting ready to head into a long working stretch where we were not going to have another free weekend (meaning Ryan off of work) in Shreveport for two months. We decided we needed to plan a fun family weekend and make the most of it so it would last until we got to do it again. So....we decided to start the weekend off with a trip to the Tyler zoo! We had planned on stopping there on our way home from our Dallas trip but it didn't work out. The first thing I realized when I got there was I had my camera, all charged, with no memory card. Thank goodness for smart phones! I was pretty impressed with all this zoo had to offer, and we ended up having a great day together.

|James's attention span lasted all of 30 seconds at each exhibit, but he sure did like them|
|Someone needs a hair cut!|
|My favorite part of the zoo- getting to eat lunch in front of the giraffes!|
|Right after this picture the elephant took a bathroom break. I don't think JT is ever going to forget that moment, lol.|
|We have been having a hard time trying to get any decent pictures of the three of us|
|This sand pile may have been his favorite part|

In this bird area you could buy food on a stick for a dollar and feed the birds. I'll be honest. I'm really not an animal person and I'm definitely not a bird person. There was something really freaky about having those birds so close to me. I'm weird, I know...
The next day was Sunday so we got up early and went to Krispy Kreme before church Yes, I know our excitement in life revolves around food.

Very thankful for a fun weekend spent together!
