Houston Trip, Day 2

On Day 2, we headed to the Houston Zoo, which was so fun for the kids. We met the Hill family there, so the grown-ups got to visit while the kids checked out the animals. They especially loved the giraffes, elephants, and the reptile house. We got to watch them bathe (hose down) and elephant. Then, while we were in the reptile house, one of the zoo keepers came in and threw a whole bunny (no longer alive) into the boa constrictor's cage. The kids all went crazy and then were fascinated watching.

After the zoo, the Hills went home and we took the kids to the train, which was great. For $2.75, you get to ride the train all around Hermann Park (at least a 15 minute ride). We all loved it. Eliana was a riot. Whenever we stopped, she wanted to stand up in her seat. As soon as the train started moving again, though, she instinctively knew she should sit down.
