The San Diego Zoo and then home.
I won tickets to the San Diego Zoo! If I hadn't have won them, we wouldn't have been able to go. Winning things is awesome. We took the bus ride around the park first thing.
Look at those handsome boys!
Turtles LOVE it when you ride them. Seriously.
goats love it when you pet them too.
So we petted as many as possible.
B doesn't look to happy to be the fly....J's excited for his meal though :)
See, told you Turtles love giving people rides!
Check it out, a Panda!
The interactive part of the Polar Bear exhibit.
We walked down the hill at the zoo and rode the sky tram back up it. J likes sky trams......and, don't tell him, but he has a monkey on his back.
Beautiful Balboa Park from the sky tram.
See- proof, we were at the San Diego Zoo!
After we left the zoo we went over to the Model Train Museum at Balboa Park, but it's closed on Mondays- BOO! So instead of looking at model trains, we looked at this really really big tree, It's tied for the biggest fig tree in California. When I was a kid, on field trips, we would always eat lunch here at this tree- back then it wasn't all fenced off and we would eat and play right under it. My boys had fun running around the fence.
We took a tiny train ride.
J was super excited for a picture near the tiny train engine...B.....not so much.
The next morning, we packed up and went home. It was about Noon when I understood WHY my parents would leave San Diego at 4AM......Noon in the middle of the Mojave is no fun.
We stayed the night with the Fears family of Henderson, where they boys enjoyed a nice long sleep at my very nice cousin Angie's house.
And that was our Big Adventure!
