Today was another full day spent exploring the San Francisco Zoo. It has been a long time since we have been to visit -- way too long, so I'm glad we were able to meet our friends here and enjoy the day.
Upon arrival, we met a nice docent who was showing off this huge foot of a bird... a cassowary, to be exact. The children became more interested in her talk when she asked if any of them had seen the movie, Up. As you may know... we have most of that movie memorized... so our ears perked up when she informed us that they character, Kevin, was based on a cassowary! Check out how big the foot is!!! (not sure why E's face is like that!)
I am so proud of them today -- we had so much fun! (despite the chaos of all the children running around and driving some of us moms batty!)
Go Diego! Go!)
love their house:
A very shy rhinoceros:
There's another tiger:
We then went along the path and stopped to pet a tortoise:
Off to the Children's Zoo!
This was their second favorite place t visit -- the petting zoo (although I am NOT a fan of these places!). Some of the goats are pretty aggressive - luckily none were today (phew!):
Our day finally came to an end!
And that was the end of our tour... We saw most of the animals... but sadly we missed the cassowary... so we will make that our next priority when we visit again! I hope to return sooner rather than later! Since our Happy Hollow membership expires soon, we might just purchase a membership here afterwards - since both zoo provide 50% off our admission tickets when we have a membership to either zoo! That is always a bonus! :)
