Zoo Day

For the second year in a row, we attended my law firm's office picnic at the Dallas Zoo. Since my Mom was in town, she was able to join the fun as well. Unlike our last visit, Ava was old enough to really enjoy exploring the zoo this year.

While I still prefer the Fort Worth Zoo, the Dallas Zoo has a lot to offer, including some wonderful habitats and animals. My favorite is the Wilds of Africa section.

We were very excited to finally see the gorillas!

Ava loves gorillas, and she was mesmerized by this one. 

We checked out all the other animals, including the elephants.

But I think the giraffes were Ava's favorite. 

Especially because she got to feed them...

We also rode the monorail for the first time. It wasn't the coolest thing ever, but I'm glad we did it. 

Ava played musical chairs and ended up breaking multiple rules during the ride...namely eating and sitting by herself (since she is under three). Don't turn us in to the zoo police. 

We ended the day at the lunch picnic, where Ava enjoyed some Cheetos while dancing. 

It doesn't get much better than that.

About Me

My name is Catherine, but most of my friends call me Cat. I was born and raised in Austin, went to TCU, and ended up in Dallas for law school (where Josh and I met). I decided that being an attorney was not my cup of tea and pursued a career in legal marketing instead. I am now a mother of two attempting to balance family with a full-time job, which is always an adventure. I love: my sweet babies, handsome husband, very large family, and fabulous friends; trying new restaurants; wine; TCU football; holidays; cooking; The Bar Method; pajamas; La Croix; reading; coffee; podcasts; Central Market; carbs; the beach; mani/pedis; Anthropologie; binge-worthy TV shows; trivia; French 75s; Pinterest; cheese boards; The Ticket; dancing; Sprinkles cupcakes; The Texas Rangers; fresh flowers; thunderstorms; naps; Tex-Mex; the Texas Hill Country; porch-sitting; ranch dressing; throwing parties; and my job. I hate: working-mom guilt; snakes; heights; waking up early; ignorant people; stomach bugs; paper cuts; green fruit; snoring; bad hair days; the sound of people eating (Misophonia); scary movies; bad drivers; pulpy OJ; trimming baby fingernails; and Miracle Whip. I think that about sums it up.
