Daddy Days: Dallas Zoo

Jake & Mal's fun weekend with Daddy continued Saturday morning with a trip to the donut shop. Donuts have become a frequent weekend treat at our house, but usually we just eat them at home, so this was their first time to actually go there. J informed me before the day even began that he would not be putting a bow in Mal's hair but he'd at least put her in a dress so she looked like a girl. The man knows my priorities!
After donuts, they headed to the Dallas Zoo for a morning with "my animals," as Jake had been calling them. J was busy chasing kids & didn't get too many pictures, but here are a few.

Mal saying hi to a gorilla
"Wow, that thing is big!" Can you see Jake's little head over its shoulder?
J said Jake loved watching the fish.
Two curious little curly heads in the petting zoo. Mallory apparently loved petting the goats & ran right up to them. Jake, on the other hand, despite loving goats in books or on TV, was absolutely terrified.
After the zoo, they picked up Chick fil-A, the kids' favorite, & headed home.

Mal woke up in a terrible mood on Sunday & didn't care for Daddy's hard work to fix her hair. Didn't he do a good job, though!
My friends all know me so well & know that Mallory does not go to church, or hardly anywhere else, without a bow in her hair. Sharon texted me this pic as proof that J got the job done. Looks like Mal's mood had only improved slightly.
Since there wasn't a picture of the three of them from the weekend, I took this yesterday at J's office when we joined him for lunch. Thanks for being such a great Daddy!
