We had great plans for the day. I had free tickets to the Fair and this was the last weekend. I love the fair and feel it is necessary to have at least one corny dog every year. Not too much to ask. Of course, we knew it was TX/OU weekend. My super awesome husband decided to hang with us and miss watching the game live (LOVE that guy)! We just thought that if we went during the game, it wouldn't be crowded. Boy were we WRONG!!! We got to the Fair grounds and all the parking lots were full. I had the bright idea to park in my lot at Baylor and ride the new green line DART rail to the fair. Great idea!! Right?? WRONG!! The Dart rail was overloaded and backed up for miles. It was train after train after train full of angry fans not making it to the game on time. The rails were all running about an hour behind schedule. It was CRAZY!! So, since we were already out, we decided to hop aboard the rail going the other direction and go to the zoo. It was quite an adventure. We had to get on the green line and then get to the red line and...well, we finally made it to the zoo. It was a perfect day. The kids had a blast. Elliot was so, so, so good. The weather was gorgeous. And Joel didn't complain about missing the game one bit!!
They have redone the building with the snakes/reptiles and such. It was actually really nice. The Dallas zoo has really stepped up their game.
And, we got fair food anyway. Joe had the giant (nasty) turkey leg that he loves oh so much!!Not a corny dog, but nachos will work for now.P-sters chose a pizza.
Elliot had a nice long nap in the sling. Preciousness!! A favorite of the zoo is climbing the giant rocks. Such boys!!
