A LITTLE BIT OF THIS...A LITTLE BIT OF THAT...

Last week, I decided to take the kids, my daughter's friend, and my mom, to the San Francisco Zoo because they're having this awesome deal through August. When you pay for one adult, four kids (14 and under) are free! My husband works in the city, so he met us there after work, and we decided to make an entire day/evening out of it.

I won't post all my zoo pics, but I had to share this one. This rhino was massive and awesome!

And this is probably the closest I will ever get to a black bear! I took this picture through the glass!

And here are all the kiddos!

After the zoo, we went to our favorite Chinese restaurant!!

I think this picture is cute of Miranda and dad! My husband looks so tired!

And finally, the kids wanted to stop by the beach! Now, let me tell you, this is San Francisco, not Southern California. The majority of the time, the weather is really cool there. On this day, it was freezing, but they still managed to get wet! You can tell by the overcast, and how my husband has his hoodie on over his head, that it was COLD! My mom and I stayed in the car the entire time. It was so windy, too!

Happy Tuesday, Alicia!

We love going to zooa and when it cools down we will go again! I can't believe that it is actually cold! I guess I also thought all of California was warm.

The food shot looks SO yummy!! =)

The closest to a "zoo" that we get here would be Ocean Park, which is primarily an aquarium, but it's still WAYYYYY too hot to go... maybe when it cools down a bit.

The zoo was one place we did not get to when we were then next spring. We will have to try to get there next time.

Love it. You stayed in the car. ;) Ohhh to be young and not care about temperatures!

Kimberly said...

Cold? At the beach? In August? In California? I didn't even know that was possible!

The food looks divine, and the family fun even more so. :)

What a fun day! I've never been to the SF zoo..great pictures :)

Helene said...

Those are great pics!!!! I didn't realize the SF zoo was having that special...how cool! Can you believe I've never been there?? I very rarely go to the zoo, being that I practically live in one anyway.

Those are great pics! That is a wonderful special. I'm sure your hubby was happy to be able to meet you. Sometimes I feel bad b/c Mackaylan and I get to do all kinds of fun things while he is away at work. Doing things at night is a great idea! :) Lana
