On our second day we went to Lufkin. We ate some delicious Texas barbecue at Stringer's Lufkin Bar B Q. After lunch we went to the Ellen Trout Zoo, it was such a nice zoo with beautiful plants and some animals we had never seen before. Have you ever heard of a Malayan Tapir? We had not - they are very interesting looking. The zoo had peacocks that roamed freely and our 17 month old would follow them around saying "quack, quack". We even letterboxed at the zoo!
Once back at the house the boys wanted to get in the hot tub - it was their first experience and now they want one at our house! For dinner we had a cookout with the older boys (the little guy was worn out from the outing, so he had an early dinner and went to bed), they loved the fire pit where they roasted hot dog and marshmallows. What a great day!
