In March 2012 our family had the pleasure of visiting the San Diego Zoo. That facility is incredible! Huge enclosures, beautiful weather, every cool animal I could dream of seeing in person. The park has trees that provide shade while exploring and each exhibit is designed in a way to be as close as possible to the animals while keeping everyone safe. We learned so much and had a great time!
This mama chimpanzee was staring at my son through the glass and the crowd kept saying “Aww the mama likes the baby!” It was pretty cute, she was clearly interested and followed his movements for about 5 minutes.
Even the giraffes posed in beautiful lines! I think I was just as delighted as my son was with all the animals.
Rhinos are so funny when you are one year old and have only seen them in books before!
