Here fishy fishy fishy

We had one day left in Fort Worth and needed something to do. We had shopped WAAAAY too much already, and it was a little chilly outside, so... off to the Dallas World Aquarium we go! It's a really cool exhibit. It's like an indoor jungle with trees, bridges, waterfalls and animals all around you. Very cool!

 Fascinated by sealife. I wonder where she gets it. Hmmm
Inspecting Pippy's necklace...
 These are my favorites of the day...
 Kaylee looooved the fishes. She could sit there for hours and watch the fish. She does that at home too!
 This is "Mr. Ugly"... we had one in our tank a looong time ago.
 Kaylee wasn't too sure about the Octopus
 Hey look! It's Pa! ;)
 This is suppose to be Kaylee looking at the Cheetos.. I mean, Cheetah. Low light + fast moving animal + no flash due to glass glare = blurry. haha
 Ah yes... the penguins are STILL a big hit. Best part of the day.
 Trying to talk to them... I don't think they were interested in what she had to say.

Thanks for a fun afternoon Mom! PS - note to self for next time.... let's take pictures of US together too! haha

Lions, and Tigers, and Bears (wait... there weren't any bears)

OH MY! Kaylee had her very first visit to the Fort Worth Zoo today! We weren't sure if she would even be interested, but she LOVED it! First of all, I must rub it in (for all you Minnesota peeps) that it's 80 degrees outside. We were wearing tank tops, and Kaylee had on no shoes. Oh, and it's February... JUST SAYIN ;)

Anyways, we started out with a super yummy lunch at, non other than, Hoffbrau!
We had BRAU CHIPS (yum), sourdough bread, and CATFISH WITH FRIED OKRA!!! (triple yum!)

Then off to the Zoo... First stop, the GIFT SHOP! AKA "mommy's first job"

Then off to see the animals... YAY!

 Which was Kaylee's favorite, you ask? DEFINITELY the penguins! She thought they were hilarious. She just giggled and kicked her legs the entire time. I think the penguin liked showing off for her too!

Favorite animal #2? MONKEY! Her cousin Ari would be so proud.
Here's KK's favorite animal... HA! NOT

Kaylee is quite the little animal watcher! Not surprised.

A quick brake for a few photo opps :}

 Then back to the animals! SO FUN!

 It wouldn't be a trip to the Zoo with Dad without stopping by one of his many exhibits at the Fort Worth Zoo that Halbach Dietz Architects designed!
The learning center is his newest creation and is under construction.
 Another "Pa Project" (hehe cheesy I know) is the Parrots Paradise. It is SO COOL! It's a giant bird cage you can walk into, and there are birds flying all over and you can feed them. It's one of the "favorites" for many familys... but the Parrots Paradise was closed for some reason. BOO! 

Thank goodness these Lions made up for it! Awwww

Thanks for a fun afternoon Pa&KK! We had so much fun!

Aaaaaand.... we're out! :)

Mirror Mirror, On The Wall...

We are making a quick visit to Fort Worth this weekend! We woke up last night and had a slow morning while my Mom (Pippy) was at work. As I was getting ready, I placed Kaylee in front of the mirror to keep her entertained, but ended up getting the camera instead of washing my hair... (oops, that will be our little secret!). I think I remember seeing pictures of me at a little one in front of this same mirror, and have MANY memories sitting in this same spot. THIS is where I sat every morning to do my makeup and watch MY mom get ready in the mornings :}

She loves it!
Hmm... maybe not. So serious!
 My idea of a self-portrait haha. They is me half the time lately...

Look at me roll over!

There's nothing better than baby rolls :}
 ... and baby toes!

Okay Mom, it's naptime! ADIOS!
