The Houston Zoo

On Monday, December 22nd, we were up and at 'em early and got to the zoo right after it opened. It was an absolutely gorgeous day and the zoo was nice and empty nearly the entire time we were there. There were lots of firsts that day...It was baby Mark's first time at a zoo so it was fun to be with him for that, it was the first time I had been with my kids where all the cats were out and so active which was cool, and it was the first time we rode the Hermann Park train. It was a fun morning...and we still made it home in time for half the family to watch the BYU football game at our house and for me to get the kids to playdates with friends.
That evening we hung out at Kayley's house with the whole gang and we all met Kyler, Hope's boyfriend (and soon-to-be fiance), for the first time. That night we played Scum with all the siblings and their significant others for the first time in ages. This day was what the holidays are all about to me...fun and family time!
