A couple of weeks ago we got the chance to visit the Houston Zoo when Nathan's work training meeting got out early. The zoo was an absolute blast. They had so many great things for kids. Caleb ran around like crazy touching and climbing on everything. We all had a great time.
He was a little unsure about the carousel at first but once it stopped and we made him get off he cried to get back on.
The best part of the whole trip was when we got to the chimpanzee exhibit. One of the Chimps was super interactive and Caleb would bang on the window and then the Chimp would stand up and bang on the window which would send Caleb into and uncontrollable laughter. It was hilarious and went on for awhile.
The zoo even has a really great splash park right in the middle of the kids zone. Of course only in south Texas is it still hot enough that it would still be open at the end of October.
They had a really great petting zoo and of course our little animal lover had a great time and didn't want to leave. He would grab and try to hold all of the goats hands, I am sure they were happy to see him go.
If you ever get at chance to go I would reccomend it, this zoo was by far one of the best and most little kid friendly! We all had such a great time.
