Wildlife in the Rainforest

It's been a couple weeks since I last posted because it was just hard to get in the mood. Those who have lost one of their furbabies will understand. Thanks so much for all the kind comments on the blog and Facebook. Gretchen will always be in our hearts. Willy and Harley both were a little lost too but are doing better now.

This is a busy month for birthdays in our family. We always celebrate them with the grandkids on the weekend they are here in San Antonio that is closest to the event. So we celebrated Morgan's 10th birthday on the third weekend in January. First up on the agenda was a trip to the Rainforest Café, a place she has wanted to visit for a while.

We tried to take them once before but the waiting time was just ridiculous. This time we arrived right at 1100 when they open. Our only wait was the time it took them to get it together at the hostess desk. Then we were ushered upstairs to the second floor. The first floor is a bar and gift shop and the two floors above are for dining. We tried to pin the kids down long enough to get the food ordered and then let them explore which is encouraged. This big guy was just a couple tables away from us.

There is jungle music playing and every few minutes the animals get very animated.

I'm not sure that Steve realized this snake was swaying just above his head.

Here we are chest pounding and vocals going on.

The elephants really roar.

Morgan was working on the booklet they gave each of the kids.....gave them lots of word games as well as a checklist of animals to find in the restaurant.

Steve got pretty interested in Cameron's booklet. He is a hands on Dad.

It was a really interesting experience. The food was pretty good. The prices for the kids were decent and included drinks. Our food was a little more expensive but was pretty good. Next stop......live animals!

  1. That would be such a fun place to take kids. I know you're giving you fur pups even more love. Still think about you often.
