Dallas Day 2

We had gotten some of Morgan's back to school shopping done when we were in Ft. Lauderdale, but she still had some things to get. Morgan wanted to go shopping with Aunt Suzy, because she is cooler than Mom and Dad. So we spent a good portion of the day doing the back to school shopping thing. No pictures of that, but I will give you a mental picture. Morgan is not the best for trying on clothes, and I am not the most patient with this process and Suzy knows this. We were in the dressing room at JC Penny and Morgan was getting ready to try on clothes and she had a blue and yellow scarf in her hair. Suzy told her that we were going to have a good time and that if she was not good that I was going to put the scarf in my hair like Aunt Jamima and go around the mall calling her "Lula bell". Needless to say that she did very well and I only had to wear the scarf in the dressing room.

When we were going back to Suzy's house we saw these horses on the side of the road. Now you look at them and think they are in a pasture or a big patch of land. Nope, they are on the side of the freeway. It is a 4 lane highway. We had to go around the block to take the pictures. They were so cool.After all the shopping was done, we went to dinner at the Melting Pot. It was really fun. Suzy and Rick had been there before, but for Morgan and I, this was the first time.

After dinner we went to a petting zoo that the kid's preschool was having. This was really neat. They had a calf, and some goats and some chickens and a pot bellied pig. The kids had a good time petting the animals.

Jake picked up this fluffy chicken by his feathers. I don't know who was more scared, Jake or the chicken. We all laughed though.

After they got done petting the animals, the kids played on the playground at the school. That was fun.

Jake was really cute sitting on this bale of hay.

This pig was always laying on the rabbits. When I pointed this out to the petting zoo owner, he said the pig has done that since he was born. I think it is funny looking.

When we got home the kids played around some. Jake loved to lay on Morgan on the floor. That was really cute.

We had a really busy day, and were glad to go home and relax.
