DFW Road Trip: Part 1

It felt so good to be back in DFW! I felt like I had never left, even though we've been gone for 2 years!
We stayed with our wonderful friends - Trey, Sheila, and their little boy Alec. They were so gracious and generous to open their home to us. Thank you so much for your hospitality! Bryce and Drew had lots of fun playing with Alec and all of his toys!

On our first day we took the boys, Alec and Uncle Jeff to The Fort Worth Zoo (Bryce and Drew's first time to the zoo!) It was a scorching 100 degrees but we had so much fun watching their reactions to all of the real live animals.
The monkeys always bring lots of smiles!
Alec got up close and personal with the gorilla!
We saw rhinos


And much more!
I think the boys' favorite part of the zoo was the reptile area. They loved the snakes & lizards, of course!
That evening we cooled off at Uncle Jeff's pool at his apartment. The boys had lots of fun swimming with their buff Uncle and splashing in the fountains!

Okay, I am already getting teary eyed just looking at these. We had such a great time with you all and already miss you so much! We are so thankful to have you in our lives!
Give those boys big squeezes!
Love you, Sheila
