Look at my Creatures : San Diego Zoo :)

We went to the zoo Last Month while down in beautfiul San Diego for a wedding. SInce I was all ready spending the night there because of the 12 hours wedding day.. I figured why not make it a family weekend! It was so much fun. For those of you have never been to the San Diego ZOO.. you must go ! It is 100 times better thatn the LA Zoo. The animals actually come out and look at you. It is shaded and cool and the whole place is beautiful! Here are my fave images from the day. I love spending time with my family and I love seeing all the awesome creatures.


The first two creatures we saw were these funny looking mamals eating some kind of frozen snack!

They seemd to be very consumed by the sweetness of the treat.

I even got one of them to take a picture with me by promising more treats later.

I saw this very attractive creature waliking on a brigde and caught up to him to get a picture.

Many of the creatures were resting.

Some were so hungry they began to eat dead trees.

The attractive one was able to catch the two funny looking ones for a moment. I couldn't resist a picture of this too,

After that we saw that the creepy creatures were trying to web us into the park and we quickly ran away.. This was hard being that the webs were only 5 feet above our heads.

I can't think of anything clever to say here, just ahhhhhhh! and ewwwwwww! and that you have to walk under these webs to get down from the polar bear plunge and most people didnt even know they were there.

The funny looking creatures caught thsi giant hippo and it just gave up! The power of small children is amazing!
