Last Saturday -- a PERFECT day -- we left early, at Anne's insistence, and went to the Houston Zoo. I hadn't been there before, but she and the kids had -- and leaving early was an excellent idea. Parking wasn't too bad and all the animals were out. (I imagine in summer, they all go someplace shady for the majority of the day!). We had a good time.
First we found the ring-tailed lemurs and then the lions.
