San Francisco Zoo ...again!

We have a year long pass to the zoo so we can go whenever we want!  Which is great because the once-a-month free days are so crowded.  

When it's nice and open we can just spend the day following Eric.

Joe was so sweet to carry Wendy (when she was tired of the stroller) AND push the stroller so I could play with the camera.  Thank you, honey!

There is a Tropical South America exhibit where there are supposed to be a couple Monarch butterflies...

but they had an encounter with an air vent above the exit door.

Eric's favorite things about the zoo, surprisingly, aren't the exotic animals.  He enjoys random construction cones...

walking on railroad tracks (luckily due to the tsunami warning, the "Little Puffer Train" wasn't running that day)...

any body of water (puddles, ponds, pools, fountains)...he even asked to take a bath with a hippo...

and throwing rocks and bark into exhibits...

no matter how big or stuck the rock may be.

Since Wendy was actually awake this time, we had to do a little photo shoot of her.  She is our sweet little princess and is so quick to smile!

Um....I don't know what to say about this one.  This picture reminds me of an ewok?

When our children throw themselves to the ground in a crying fit it means we've had a fun day and it's probably time to go home.

He was asleep within 5 minutes of walking through the door.

So was she.

Reminds me of our first year! We had a zoo pass too, and we spent tons of time there. Eric's jacket is totally cool and I like Wendy's Ewok picture, haha. Oh, and did you see the attacking lion? He used to stalk children that were looking through the glass and pounce against it. It was totally scary. Ev still won't go near that exhibit because she remembers it.
