Am I really still posting pics from the SFC?
It was a long trip, people, and I have to chronicle the whole excursion
for future enjoyment.
This post is long.
With LOTS of pictures.
It's THE San Diego Zoo.
It was absolutely incredible. Really it was. The habitats for the animals were first rate, the grounds were beautiful. These were lucky little animals.
The obligatory "We're here!" shot.
Our monkeys...or gorillas
More pennies for the passports!
Can you hear Carter claiming, "I was here first!"
These are meerkats. They're awesome.
Love the ones sunbathing!
How awesome is the coloring of these giraffes? Such beautiful animals.
Have you ever wondered why koalas sleep so much?
This flamingo loved this little girl...and the dad thought it was funny.
The little girl....not so much.
While we were waiting in line to purchase our ridiculously expensive lunch...more on that later...we looked above the door, and there was a bird's nest. As we stood there, we watched the owner of the nest fly back and forth from the nearby trees, gathering supplies to build its home. I started to take pictures, and Trysten said, "Alli! Why are you taking those pictures of a bird's nest?" I get a little carried away with the camera sometimes, but it was really cool to see nature firsthand.
Did you know this:
Lots of chances to get up close and observe
This is a condor.
Not a bird you want to meet without glass between the 2 of you.
Check out the elephant habitat:
The Queen of the Jungle
The boys loved this sign.
There was so much to learn!
A few more before we leave...
After the zoo, we head to our resort to check in, venture around and have dinner.
Ryan found this place online, and it was awesome!
The property had private bungalows:
Lots of places for the boys to be boys!
It had a great marketplace which we hit up...a few times!
Nothing like a little snake jump roping before dinner.
Wait...the day isn't over yet!
What a day!
What an awesome day!
I leave you with this video of that night at dinner.
I love our crazy family!
