Living in Texas I seem to always long for the weather to be either warmer or colder. Our spring and our fall is just not long enough to suit me. By the time you realize fall is here, you better get outside and enjoy it because the weather will get cold (for us Texans) before you can blink.
One thing I try to do every fall is go to the zoo. I love zoos and when I'm traveling on vacation if the city I'm staying at has a zoo, I try to fit it into our vacation. We are planning a zoo trip with the girls soon. I love going to the zoo in the fall because the animals seem to be more frisky after a long hot summer. Last year we went to the zoo with the girls for the first time, they were really too young to get what was going on, but they still had a fun outing. This year they are saying and signing almost every zoo animal. Izzie's favorite is "ROAR!" (lion) and she'll do the sign while saying it. For awhile Maddie's favorite was crocodile, but I think Izzie has convinced her that Roars are much better.
They also love Hippos, Rhinos, Giraffe, Elephant and many others. I can't wait to show them these animals in person. I know they are just going to flip with excitement!
