On Friday, we had a full and busy day at the Houston Zoo and the Children's Museum of Houston.
We had to circle around to find parking for the zoo and my ever-perceptive Lucas took notice. At the end of our day at the zoo, he said, "Mama, I'm so glad you found a parking spot. It was a fun day!" I'm glad too!
Visiting my favorite - the gorgeous elephants!
Sweet boy really loved trucking around on this squishy floor in the kiddie play area.

The goats have always been his favorite.
After our adventures at the zoo, we made our way over to the Children's Museum of Houston to meet up with Brianne and the twins. It was so wonderful to meet Gemma and Jansen! They are so adorable and the boys had such a fun afternoon playing with them. Of course, I was thrilled to death to spend some time with Bri in between chasing our little ones around. Funny how much things have changed in the last few years for us! It's so much fun to see your best friends become parents and all the wonderful things that come with that stage of life. Nothing better!

We had a truly fantastic day, especially hanging with Bri and the kids! In the evening, Dan and the boys and I had a super yummy dinner at Guadalajara Hacienda in downtown Houston. I also got to enjoy probably the best margarita I've had in years! I almost had two, but I legitimately think I wouldn't have been able to walk home safely if I'd had more than just the one. It was goooood!
