Our First Trip To The Dallas Zoo

Last Sunday was our Dallas Zoo trip with brother-in-law and his wife.  It was a good time to visit the zoo because the weather was pleasant.  Dallas Zoo is located in downtown Dallas, Texas.  It was the very first time me and darling daughter had gone to the Dallas Zoo.  It is the oldest and the largest zoological park in Texas.

Welcome to Dallas Zoo!

Cooler months of the year is the perfect time to visit the zoo.  You will actually feel comfortable walking around the place for sightseeing for hours.  So wearing tennis shoes or comfort shoes is recommendable.  One thing my DD asked me during our tour is food.  Good thing I brought her lunch bag full of snacks with drinks – juice and water.  We sat down on a bench somewhere and I let her eat.  Then we head on after.  It is also recommendable to bring some snacks that your kids like.  Though there is a restaurant in the zoo where you can buy full meals too, it is good to take something that you and your kids can munch on quickly.

DD’s favorite at the zoo is seeing the giraffes.  She didn’t care about the Kangaroos and monkeys.  She was looking for the giraffes so went to see them at the Giants Of The Savanna.  She was so amazed how tall they were in person.  There’s a monorail and Mary-go-’round.  My favorite was seeing the lions and tigers.  They’re so beautiful.

According to my brother-in-law and sister-in-law, the Dallas Zoo looked different now.  They haven’t been there for years so it has changed.  Some of the areas have been renovated and remodeled.  The park is clean and easy to navigate.  We really had a wonderful time.  DD had fun with aunt and uncle.

A Compliment On My Driving

“Mommy, you’re good at driving.” – DD

These are the words my little girl said while we are driving to town.  Honestly, I was surprised how she actually complimented me with my driving.  I was really touched.  I have no idea where thoughts are coming from because at her young age (3 years old), I don’t think she means it.  But I believe her.  Of course I told her that I appreciate her compliment and I am doing my best to be a good driver.

See, I am always careful and alert while driving.  Whenever we go out-of-town or just go to town, I do my best to drive safely.  It is quite difficult for me because, like what they say, all your senses are working when you’re driving.  Road travel for me is very tiring.  I feel stiffness on my shoulder.  My husband told me to relax my arms and hands while on the wheel to prevent muscle stress.

When I feel muscle stress on my shoulders, I let my husband give me a massage.  Sore muscles from driving makes me feel irritable and tired.  I enjoy driving.  But sometimes it’s exhausting, too.  No matter how long the drive is, I don’t let fear get over me.  I feel confident and relaxed on the wheel.  To me, driving is always an adventure.

Meet the driver. :)
