San Diego Zoo

Look at that love

Stan had another conference in San Diego so we went down Monday after school and stayed until Wednesday at 5 am to get Israel back to school on time.
We played on the beach the first day, it was too cold for swimming, but we enjoyed the shells, building sandcastles, and attempting to fly our dollor store kites.

Day 2 we went to the Zoo and then the kiddos enjoyed the pool while I read a book (it was too windy for swimming if you ask me)
acting like orangutans
real orangutan
Julia loved seeing the hippo above and below the water
She wanted a picture by all statues in the zoo.
Israel with a bird trainer and a Eurasian Owl- the biggest owl in the world!

Israel with a seal at the polar bear place (our 3rd time going and to our dissapointment those polar bears still aren't swimming
On the gondola ride. Eliza was most excited about this high flying ride over the zoo.
Julia with elephants
What a good trip. Next time we want to go to the Wild Animal Park

Cute pictures! Looks like you guys had a good time. Too bad about the polar bears, though. When Bryce and I went to the SD Zoo the polar bears were swimming, but they were fighting with each other, and it didn't look like it was playful either....
