Zoo Day at Preschool

The Fort Worth Zoo came to Drew's preschool on January 17th.  They invited parents and siblings to attend, so Clayton, Owen, and I joined our Drew for the presentation.  It was awesome!  I didn't know quite what to expect - I just figured that they would bring out a couple of small animals and call it a day.  Boy, was I wrong!  My boys were thrilled to see an owl, snake, opossum, parrot, and penguin!

I love seeing my Drew in a school setting.  He is so quiet and serious - not at all like he is at home!

 This snake was just inches from my baby's head.  I think that my heart literally stopped for a few seconds.  Wowsers!

Surprisingly, Owen was way into the show!  He was following all of their directions.  I couldn't believe how much of it he understood.  I am in total denial that he is transitioning out of babyhood...

The zookeeper said, "Hold up your hands and look at your fingers..."
 "Put on your fox ears and listen really closely...."

 The penguin was the star of the show.  He just waddled all around the sanctuary.  Crazytown.

 Such a fun day for my boys!
