Josh came home from New Orleans this weekend for a short visit. He wanted to take Lila to the zoo for her birthday, but it was POURING down rain for most of the day. Therefore, we decided to take her to the rainforest at Moody Gardens instead since we had never been before. It is a rainforest set up in a big pyramid with different exhibits mixed in. You walk along the path under huge trees and over ponds while birds are flying around you (although the birds don't really come anywhere near the people). Lila's favorite thing was this little monkey that she found hanging out in a tree with his little monkey friend. She stared at them for a good 10 minutes making the monkey sound at them. They probably thought that she was crazy :) !
She had the best time running around the path, looking at the birds, and watching the fish swim in the ponds. She wanted to get so close to the fish that she almost fell in the water several times. Josh had to hold her clothes when she bent down to look so that she wouldn't jump in (if it was up to her, she would have definitely gone swimming with them!). I think she was glad to have her daddy home to celebrate her birthday a day late!
