Around Houston

Philip's sister Leanne came to visit last week before she started school for the summer. We had lots of fun showing her around Houston.
Our first stop was the Houston zoo. If you are wondering what a Texas Longhorn is here you go. The zoo here is a really good zoo to me because the most exciting animal at the zoo back home is the ostrich. My favorite part is the Orangutans because the baby and dad are always playing together.
This is a statue at the zoo. Summer really wanted a picture on it. The turtles head got cut off oops.
The Next stop was the beach where we had a lot of fun playing in the sun. That day was a bit more chilly, so we did not go in the water too much.
Summer really enjoyed her new sand toys. I think if the water would have been warm she would rather play in the sand.
This is the only picture we got of Leanne while she was here. Next time I will be more on top of things.

Summer actually let me bury her in the sand. She was so calm and relaxed the whole time I did it. Then the fun part of course is breaking through the packed sand.
Last but not least was a shopping trip the the new Houston Premiere Outlets. Summer loved trying on all of the jewelry while Leanne was trying on clothes.
In all it was very fun to have Leanne around. She was nice enough to watch Summer so we could go to the temple. Summer was very entertained and gave me a nice break. It is definitely nice to have family around.
