This weeks out door challenge is a trip to
The San Diego Zoo. Freckles, Gramma called the
other day to see if we wanted to go to the zoo this
weekend since she had a couple free passes. Yes!
Of course we said, we would love to join them to see the animals.
First, we took the 35 minute bus tour around the zoo.
It was our first time ever going around the zoo this way.
And... gave us a pretty good view of most of the animals in their habitats.
Of course Freckles had to stop for
a smashed penny souvenir.
It was kinda neat actually seeing the hippos sleeping on land.
I have always seen them in the water.
For lunch.... We ate at The Saber tooth Grill located
right in the new Elephant Odessy,
overlooking the elephants roaming around.
That was surely the highlight of our day! After lunch me,
Freckles and Pop Pop went off to view the elephants up close.
Our last stop was The Polar Plunge where you will find
two big polar bears frolicking in the water
and eating on big pieces of meat.
They are really huge bears up close!
We then took the sky tram back over to the front where Gramma
and Great Gramma were waiting for us. Notice...
We even got the sky car Freckles was hoping for....
It was exciting to get up there, except Freckles had a bit
of anxiety and fear of being so high up...
It took a couple of minutes for her to relax...
Enough to snap a shot of her and Pop Pop!
It was a nice warm Summer day spent outside sharing
the day with Grandparents and animals...
What more could one ask for !
Here's to a great week ahead!!!
