Over Labor Day weekend we went to the San Diego Zoo. We didn't get to the zoo till around 2 or so and THANK GOODNESS, because it was hot, hot, HOT. But only for a few hours...then the night air cooled it down quickly. Had we been there right at opening, we would have been facing the heat for hours on end.
Here we are at the beginning of our day on the bus tour. They stamped the word BUS on our arms. To our surprise, Penny sounded the word out: "bbbbb, uuuuu, ssssssssss, BUS!" I didn't even know she knew how to do that.
Dominic and Penny looked for turtles and minnows in this exhibit.
He was glad I told him to wear his tennis shoes (he fought me, he wanted to wear his sandals). Mama's know what they are talking about, don't they?
We got to see the polar bear move his head around. *yawn* j/k. I've seen many polar bears in the wild....they are much more exciting outside the zoo.
These silver polar bears were kinda cool looking.
The hippo made laps around the pool underwater. At one point, he came up and opened his mouth really wide. That was pretty neat.
Michael was an angel until the food came out, then he wanted to be swaddled and held so he could fall asleep. I watched my burger get cold while he drifted off to sleep. It was still good though.
