January 3rd marked The Teenager's 15th birthday. He chose the San Diego Zoo for his happy day. That made mom overly happy. (Shh, don't tell him. ;))
Breakfast at Chick-fil-A.
Things 1 & 2 with the giraffes. (It was awfully bright yesterday.)
Visiting the flamingos.
Happened upon a cat walk. ;)
Thing 2 convinced us we should take a bus tour. He was right. H-F enjoyed it.
Pic of an elephant, by Thing 2.
On our way to the sky buckets.
Gorillas from the sky buckets.
Learning the difference between getting eaten by a grizzly bear and a polar bear.
T1 flying the helicopter. The kids were bummed that it wasn't more like the Palm Springs Air Museum where we can spend hours playing inside, not just stop for a picture.
Inside the seal cave with our new friend, Otto.
Back down to the bottom of the zoo.
'Twas a wonderful day. Is there anything less in the most awesome city in the whole universe? Um, that'd be San Diego. :)
