Spring is in the air, at least at the Zoo

Went to REI to replace a stolen piece of luggage the other day and figured out how to make those family trips a little cheaper. As you can see there is still a ton of extra space in the bag and on SouthWest you get 2 free bags per person.
Today Dylan and I headed for the Zoo. It was nice to get out in the beautiful weather after all the wind over the weekend. Spring is definitely in the air as evidenced by the animal behavior.

Here our lion tries to impress his new lady friend, she is new to the zoo as of this winter I think.
 This guy was out sniffing around, well, stuff you and I would not sniff, but getting ignored.
 Usually there is only one polar bear pacing on the wall, today it was both in tandem.
 The peacocks were out doing their thing. Dylan wanted to get a closer look, maybe not the best idea for a little guy. This peacock actually half charged or faked a charge at Dylan, it got him to back away.
 And the ever popular ducks with Dylan and his new trucker hat.


  1. Looks like y'all had a great time. :). Lovely weather indeed. We are getting our fair share in Austin.

  2. We try, when we are not busy with errands and other stuff. The weather is too nice too easy though, if it is like this now, what is it going to be like in August?
