Lions, Tigers and Bears...

After a rare cold and snowy winter, spring has finally arrived! With spring comes visits to the Fort Worth Zoo, our favorite place to hang out! Anyone that knows Connor, knows he is OBSESSED with animals.. of any kind!
Tuesday morning I asked Connor "Where do the lions, monkeys, tigers, elephants and snakes live". Looking at me puzzled he said "The jungle?" Realizing he wasn't catching on I said "Yes, but where else do they live?" He quickly responded "The ZOO!" Me "Want to go there today with Nana?" Connor with a HUGE smile, "YES! I am so excited!"
The weather was PERFECT! Not a cloud in he sky and in the 60's. We couldn't ask for a better day! On top of that, our zoo just opened the MOLA (museum of live art) reptile house, so we were excited to check it out! We have a set route we take every time we go, so off we went exploring the animals.

The turtle on the right had his back legs hanging off the rock the entire time we stood there waiting to see if he would move.

Nana and Carter in a cage... oh no wait, Connor and I were the ones in a cage!

Connor loves feeding the birds!

Carter just along for the ride.

Carter is still hanging out... wondering if he is ever going to be set free!

Connor and I touching the sea creatures.

When we arrived to the old reptile house Connor got a little upset that we weren't going in but once we explained that they built a new snake house for the snakes and lizards to live in he got very excited to see it and asked "Did they move them in jars?" We sure have a smarty on our hands! The rest of these pictures were all taken at the new MOLA!

Connor was very excited to have the opportunity to pet a snake!

One of the greats things about the trip was being able to eat lunch right next to the alligator tank! These were all taken from our table!

I'm free!!
