Going to the Zoo

We were so lucky this week to get a visit from our friends Keri and Skylar. Keri and I have known each other a long time, our husbands were both stationed at Fort Carson when they were just beginning their Army careers. Keri and her little girl Skylar were doing a little tour through Texas and they made a special trip to Houston to spend a couple of days with us.
Here are all the kiddos watching a movie, no one wanted to take a nap, but they were all pretty tired.

On Friday we headed out to the Houston Zoo. Addie and Skylar had so much fun looking at all of the animals.

The highlight of the zoo for the girls was the petting zoo. They have a pen full of very gentle goats and a basket of brushes that you can use to groom them.

Ben was walking through the petting zoo when a goat snuck up on him. He seems okay in this picture, but it is just because he didn't realize that the goat was so close to him.

This is what he looked like when he realized the goat was so close to him.

Ben liked the view from up high the best.

Addie and Skylar loved on all the goats.

Ben just wanted to be picked up.

Here is Ben giving the goat some love.

The girls had so much fun looking at all of the animals, Ben had fun looking at the animals too , he was just content to sit in the stroller most of the time.

We had so much fun visiting with our friends! Thanks for coming to visit us.
