Yesterday morning we jumped in the car and went up to the San Francisco Zoo. The zoo is about 2 hours away from us, but the closest “real” zoo. Arabella really loved going to the Jacksonville Zoo when we lived there, and of course we jumped at the chance to go here. We went once when we first got here but haven’t had a chance to go again until yesterday. The passes make it easy though, and the kids had such a good time. Alex knows so many of the animal signs, so it’s fun to see him sign the animal when we see it. Arabella loves the penguins and Alex loves the gorillas. Other highlights were the baby tiger and baby giraffe. When we were leaving, Arabella told me, “Mama I had a great time at the zoo today, thank you for taking me”. Love that kid.
