Houston Zoo

Michael's New Orleans cousins came to Houston two weekends ago, and we were able to meet up at the zoo. It wasn't unbearably hot and we had a very nice time. Michael's highlight was watching some kids throw bread into the water as the koi, ducks, turtles and birds tried to get as much as they could. He also seemed to enjoy looking at the elephants.

Nathan was really good at reading the map and helping us navigate the zoo.

Molly understood that as you get older, your hands get bigger. She told me that when I'm 100 my hands will be as big as the one on the left.

Jungle boy!

I wanted to put a post up last night since it was both Jisselle's and GiGi's birthday, but Blogger was down! So today I will wish you both a happy belated birthday.

Easter 2011

Alternating years as we always do, 2011 had us spending Easter in Zapata. We were able to leave early Friday and have a very nice weekend. Michael enjoyed seeing some dogs and learned how to call them. For the next week at home he went to our back window, looked out and tried to call any dogs, but alas none would come at our home.

The highlight was Michael riding a horse for the first time. First he practiced indoors. Then he got his first ride with Abuelito, and afterwards with Mami.

He doesn't like to nap much in rooms other than his or daycare's, so whenever we get in the car on trips, he's out in no time.

Here are some pics from Easter Sunday

And here's a funny video from a month ago of Michael finding himself quite hilarious.
