Lions, Tigers and Bears...Oh My!

Mom, Britty and I took Greyson to the Springfield Zoo last week. I was hesitant to go (to say the least) because the Springfield Zoo is about a quarter of the size of the St. Louis Zoo. Well, that isn't the only reason. I hate the fact that you can go to the STL Zoo for FREE and the Springfield Zoo costs $8 per person. Talk about highway robbery. Crazy! Greyson is free, but still. Greyson loved it. We walked the whole thing and then did the train ride. He had a ton of fun. He was a bit scared of the giraffes (and their tongues), but so was I so who can blame him.

Train Park

We were driving around in Dallas trying to find a park with play equipment and just happened across this totally awesome train park. It was part of the children's hospital. We stayed quite a while and almost the whole time was spent "driving" the train. The park had a whole other section with a tire built playground, but we never even made it there. If anyone feels up to it, I think Greyson would love to have this built at our house. =)

Thomas the Train

A few weeks' ago, we headed to Dallas to do a bit of shopping (IKEA) and visit Thomas the Train. We signed up for the "Day out with Thomas" event. Greyson talked about it all the way there. He was so excited. I have to say that for the price $17 per person, there was a ton to do. It was well worth it. We got there and there was different tents set up with things to do. There were play trains to play with, coloring stations, videos to watch, lego building, bounce houses, etc. He was a bit overwhelmed with the noise, but really loved the whole experience. The train ride lasted about thirty minutes and it was just a tad too long for his liking. He loved the ride, but most of it went through grassy areas and there wasn't much to look at. This might be an annual excursion for us for a few years....don't tell Luke. =)

Easter Egg Hunting : Our Way

The kid thinks this is the only way to hunt Easter eggs. I think he may be a bit disappointed when he realizes the truth.
