Lions and Tigers and Bears, (but no elephants)

A few weeks ago we decided to take advantage of the amazingly beautiful, unseasonably warm January weather and head out to the SF Zoo.  Neither Jason or I had ever been there, even though we've lived in NorCal for 20 years.  Uncle Adam and his friend Kyle decided to meet us there too.

We wanted to make sure that we made it for the bear feeding, so after buying our tickets, we headed straight over to their enclosure. 

Mama, I can't look at the camera.  I might miss the bears.


The feeding was scheduled for 11, and they were only about 5 minutes late, but when you have an area filled with kids 5 and under, that feels like an hour!

Where are the bears Dada??

I can't wait anymore!!

Here they come!

Hello Miss Bear

Searching for fish

I think this Miss was a little afraid of the water, either that or lazy because she never got in.  Maybe she's watching her figure?

Got one!

Polar bear!  Duder wanted to climb in the cage with this pretty guy.  We had to explain that he was not a big dog.

We then headed into the South America area

Anaconda.  It gives me the creeps just looking at the picture.

Adam named him Kevin after the bird from "Up"


Lunch break!

I love giraffes!  I think they are just beautiful.

I have to say that this was the worst part of the day for me.  Not because I don't like the gorillas, but this mama had the saddest most soulful look in her eyes.  It absolutely broker my heart.  Especially since there was some idiot standing next to me who kept shouting "Hey! Hey, look up here!"  I seriously wanted to punch him in the face.  It's just a reminder that these are wild free creatures, who no matter how well they're being taken care of, are still in captivity.

Little giraffe

Rhino!  I got tricked for a second as we walked up and thought it was a baby elephant, but the alas...the SF zoo doesn't have any elephants.



Capybara!  Super cute, but every time I remember is a giant rodent, I get a little creeped out.

Black Swan

He looks like he has a giant banana on his head.

Prairie dogs!!

Prairie dogs!

Duder loved the children's zoo


After we finished at the zoo, we headed over to Golden Gate parks disc golf course so the boys could play.  This is is one of our favorite sunny day activities.  I absolutely love Golden Gate park. 

Good day!!
