First we saw the tigers - my Favorite!!
I don't think there's any animal more beautiful
Even big cats look cute licking their paws =)
My favorite shot of the day
This is the brother of the other one, he looked kind of goofy =)
A hungry, hungry hippo
Two monkeys in a tiff
I had never seen one of these before and can't remember what it was (not attractive!)
The Sky-fari that we rode later in the day
He can itch any spot he wants!
Pooping zebra =)
I don't remember the names of these next few:
My first koala sighting!
These aren't good pictures, but he was beautiful, like a huge dog/fox!
I love this huge sculpture!
I'm glad this isn't life size!
This gorgeous Jaguar was sadly packing back and forth the whole time, so I wasn't able to get good pictures of him, but here is Caleb watching him
Close up of the Mrs.
I love Llamas! =)
Beautiful Chinese Leopard - stupid cage
Painted dog (relative of the hyena)
He was actually the right distance away so that if I zoomed in, I could get his head in one tiny square of the cage =)
Pretty shot of San Deigo and Cabrillo Bridge
On the Sky-fari the first time
Me holding a baby Koala! =)
We took a break from the zoo in the middle of the day and took a shuttle to the center of Balboa Park. The Prado restaurant was highly recommended so we went there for lunch.
Our appetizer - Skewers of beef, chicken and shrimp with three different sauces over asian salad
My handsome date
Our main course was rosemary chicken over polenta with spinach
Us in one of the many gardens
The Hospitality House (the Prado is inside)
We went to the Rose Garden...
It had a huge, shaded arbor in the middle
Kissing silhouette =)
Back to the zoo!
Red Panda running away =)
Caleb trying to eat like a panda
We had to wait in line to see the Giant Pandas, but it was soo worth it!
Happy guy having some lunch =)
What are you starin' at?
This polar bear was hard to get pictures of because he was sitting in the water Right up against the glass (and was surrounded by a crowd of people!)
Cute big ole, head =)
Waiting to board the Sky-fari again (this time Caleb was awake for the ride!)
He seemed to like it
Me and the boy
Huge elehpant topiary on the way out!
What a great, but tiring, day! =)
Today is our last day in San Diego, and it's "Philip's Pick", so we're going to see the U.S.S. Miday Aircraft Carrier...
