One of my Wife's favorite places to go is the Zoo. A trip to the Dallas Zoo was our second date - many, many years ago. Dallas has a pretty good zoo, but our favorite local zoo is the one over in Ft. Worth.
The day was sunny, the temperature wasn't too bad in the early morning, and the crowds were pretty light for a Saturday. Guess a lot of the folks who wanted to get outside that day opted for a trip to the opening day of the Texas State Fair, instead.
They've done a great job with the habitats for most of the animals, with improvements being made all the time. Its a really pleasant way to spend a morning, or an afternoon. I can't wait until our Granddaughter gets old enough to enjoy the sights at the zoo. Right now at 9 months, it wouldn't be that different from walking around our backyard at home :)
