I've Been Waiting for this Day Since Braelyn was in the Womb

Family Day at the Zoo!!!
Since Casey was working last weekend and missed out on all our "big" fun, he took the day off today and we took our first family trip to the Houston Zoo. I was seriously excited about this. I LOVE the zoo and I have been waiting and waiting for the day when Braelyn was old enough to go and could recognize some of the animals. Today was that day and we couldn't have picked a better one. The weather was BEAUTIFUL, the animals were out and about and Braelyn had a great time seeing for the first time what she's only seen in books. It was a wonderful day.

(I realize that I've been posting a ton of pictures of Braelyn having so much fun, and after a while that can get sort of nauseating, but I just have to post some of my favorite pictures from today. After this I promise not to post any more pictures of her, nor will I let her have any more fun! Ok, maybe I don't promise, but I'll really try to keep the pictures to a minimum from now on. :)

Alright, here we go:
1. What parent can resist this photo opp?
2. Piggy-back

3. The funniest goat I ever met. Look at his teeth!

4. The Cease's...havin' some good ol' fashion family fun.

5. 5 minutes into the drive home:

Oh don't worry everyone, I'll keep posting pictures of my baby girl :)...I just felt a little bad, cause I did THREE posts of Braelyn pictures...I'll just try to spread them out a little more.

And that silly goat was just sitting there the whole time we were in the petting zoo with his head up, his eyes closed like that and showing his teeth. It was like, "if I just close my eyes maybe all these crazy kids won't see me." It was very funny.
