Grandma & Grandpa Whetstone made a spur-of-the-moment trip to Dallas to attend a funeral on Friday. In an effort to make the most out of a sad situation, they decided to stay a couple of extra days to hang out with you-know-who! :)
As it turned out we had beautiful weather today and it made for the perfect day for Reid's 1st trip to the Dallas Zoo. As you will see from the far-too-many photos I've posted, he had a blast!
Singing "If you're happy & you know it" on the way to the zoo
Measuring up (32")
Checking out the elephants with dad
Feeding the giraffes was the highlight of our day
He was a little timid at first...
...but he warmed up to them quickly.
And they warmed up to him as well!
Only a video would have done this moment justice, but since I was in photo mode only, I'll just have to tell you - I took the below photo a split second after our friendly giraffe LICKED Jeff's underarm!
You can see Reid's reaction right after Jeff let out a very manly yell.
What a fun surprise! We ran into Reid's friend, Larkin!
Koi have BIG mouths!
Feeding the goats
Taking a few minutes to chit chat
Getting ready for the Grand Finale!
