Here are just a few pictures from our trip to the Houston Zoo in July. We had promised the boys we would go as part of vacation.

Rhino’s soaking in the cool mud on a hot summer day at the zoo.
It was a very hot day when I took these pictures. Many of the animals weren’t even out because it was so hot and humid. We spent pretty much the whole day there. We love the zoo because it gives us the chance to visit and learn a little about animals that we would otherwise never see. The Houston Zoo contributes to the preservation of so many animals, through ticket sales, membership dues, and fund raisers. We buy a ‘grandparents’ membership every year. This helps me be able to share all these wonderful animals with my grandchildren, while contributing to their preservation.
