Oliver, Sophie and I went to the Los Angeles Zoo this afternoon. I'm not a big zoo fan, but it was the Big O's choice as his older brother got to go to Disneyland with a friend and that was so unfair and I never get to do anything.
There was no school today and feeling depleted in every sense of the word, I acquiesced.
I did enjoy the stripes, though.
And the flowers.
And here's a peek at the snow-covered mountains that surround our city.
well, setting aside all the pro and con arguments for zoos in general, the San Francisco Zoo saved me on many a loooong day with my kids, back in my single mom days.ReplyDelete
LA looks lovely-we are driving down there the last week in March, and I'm going to try and find some of places I lived as a child. I've only been back to SoCal a handful of times since I left home at eighteen, thirty-two years ago, and not for the last several years, so I'm excited!
I love those mountains, maybe it's the snow. We never get snow here and I was gasping at that beautyReplyDelete
Your post made me nostalgic for the view we used to have in La Jolla: ocean in the front, snow-covered mountains in the back. Now I have Lake Michigan and snow all over!! And no flowers except what are on my window sill. It was warm (40) enough that we opened the window a tiny bit when we went to bed. Spring is coming! The San Diego Zoo was our go-to outing. I'm not a big fan of zoos either but the boys sure were!ReplyDelete
The "I never get to do anything" always gets me too .... looks like it was a good choice though :)ReplyDelete
you offer zoo pics i can handle.ReplyDelete
glad the kids had fun.
What gorgeous pictures. I could lose myself in the first zebra.ReplyDelete
I never thought about it before. Thanks for putting it out front. I want to add, "And none of them are ugly."
I LOVE to go places with pouty boys! I love your photos of your beautiful children. Even when you are dog-tired your view is gorgeous. Thanks for the stripes.ReplyDelete
Hey, our boys we both saying about the same thing today. Here it was,"It's no fair, the girls both got to do something and I didn't." Too bad we couldn't have joined you. :)ReplyDelete
Glad you were able to make the most of it. Know how that feels.ReplyDelete
Great shots all around!ReplyDelete
