Re: Southeast TX

Next Friday would be good for us. 10 am would probably be the earliest I could get there as I would have about a 1.5-2 hour drive.

Awesome...then next Friday it is! How about we do 10:30 to allow a little extra time. We can meet in front of the big tree out front. I'll either be chasing dd away from the ducks or have her in my baby hawk.

Oh and my name is Jeanette. and here's a recent picture of us

Re: Southeast TX

10:30 am on Friday sounds great. Here is a pic of us from a couple of months ago. I had a hard time finding any pics of me in them. I am ususally the one taking the pics. We are the redheads! We may bring my SIL and niece with us too. DH might want to come. I've never been here before. Any tips on what to bring or not to bring?

I plan on bringing:
camera
water
snacks
diaper bag
mosquito spray
sunscreen (we are super white!)

Are you planning on bringing food to eat? Is there somewhere there to eat?

There are two different cafes to eat at, here are their menus: http://www.houstonzoo.org/eat/

We will be eating at one of the cafes because I do not feel like lugging around food all day You can bring coolers with whatever you want, but you are not allowed to bring glass containers, alchoholic beverages, or plastic straws.

Just so that everyone is aware, the Zoo will be closing early at 4:30 on Friday for Zoobilee. I think that we will be done before then, but I just wanted to throw that out there.

Re: Southeast TX

Definitely bring any food you want. I would definitely pack a cooler or something if you all come. The cafe's can get expensive. You can get your hand stamped and go back to the car and picnic in the surrounding park or if you bring it in you can stop and eat at both cafe's outdoor areas. They are covered by awnings or trees and usually fairly cool.

We will eat at a cafe as well. Dd won't do a stroller so I'll just put snacks/drinks in our backpack. We bought the souvenir cup last visit so we'll bring that back and get cheap refills for me.

You may want to remember a spare set of clothes for little ones. There are misting fans if it's really hot. I don't think the little splash area is open right now.

I can get $1 off admission with my membership. So if you want to bring cash we can buy everyone's tickets together. I also get reduced price carousel tokens that we can buy at the same time.

Oh and we will probably leave by 2:30, I have to keep dd close to her schedule.
