Book Club at the Zoo!

This month, we read Modoc: The True Story of the Greatest Elephant that Ever Lived by Ralph Helfer. Since the book was about an elephant, we decided we would meet at the Houston Zoo to see the animals and discuss the book. It was a perfect way to spend a Saturday. We saw lots of different animals, including the baby elephants and the baby giraffes. We even got to eat lunch right next to the giraffe area. The morning was completed with a yummy serving of dippin dots! Yum!
Dippin Dots! Yummy!
And no trip to the Zoo is complete without a Texas Longhorn!

Fun field trip! It looks so nice and warm. We're freezing here, with no sign of a warm up anytime soon. Can I live vicariously through your weather???

I can't believe how big those horns are on the Longhorns!
