When we were deciding what to do in San Diego we debated over going to Sea World or the Zoo. We figured that our kids would like the zoo better and we were right. The girls loved seeing all the animals- the whole time Abby kept making the animals sounds and saying hi and bye to them.
We really enjoyed the zoo because the animals were more active than the Salt Lake Zoo's and we got to see a bunch of animals eating. It was crazy to just watch the tiger gnaw on bones and think "I'm glad that isn't me".
I also liked the zoo because in each enclosure they tried to plant plants that were from the animals natural habitat. I found these flowers and just had to take a few shots of them.
We literally spent the whole day there and just barely made it to every animal. The kids also thought the petting zoo was cool and they got to pet goats and sheep. We were all exhausted by the end of the day, which in my book qualifies for a great day =)
