The next morning we checked out of our hotel and went to “The Breakfast Klub” for chicken and waffles.
Then over to the Houston Zoo. First stop, Meerkats!
Then we went to the Elephant exhibit.
AND THERE WAS A BABY ELEPHANT!!!!

Baby Elephant PLAYING!
The baby was 2 months old and 2 days, and named Duncan.
Here’s Mark refusing to pose for me.
Playing with a display about Texas:
Brushing a goat in the petting zoo:
Leaving the zoo we found a train for Mark to ride! It did a circuit around Hermann Park in Houston, right next to the zoo. I think Mark had fun on the train, he was really quiet and just held on to the railing the whole time, but when it was time to get off he did not want to leave!
That night’s game started at 6:10, and we got there at 4:30 to try to get an autograph, but weren’t able to get one. The most exciting part of the game was when I was trying to get a photo of Kyle and Mark, and suddenly Kyle shot his hand up in the air…
It was just a squishy ball from the cheerleaders, but it was perfect for Mark – and Kyle didn’t hurt his back trying to catch it, so win-win!
