San Diego Zoo
Julianne and I have been spending our days at the zoo lately. We met some new friends (well, new for Julianne) last week and had so much fun exploring and showing our little girls all of the animals. Their favorites were the elephants, panda bears, and of course the discovery center with the playground to run around on.
This week Conor, Nik, Rachelle and her family, and Victoria came down from Los Angeles to go with us to the zoo. Julianne had so much fun with her cousins and the adults had a good time too. Our first quest was to find the “silver-back gorillas” for little Elijah. He would not stop talking and acting like a gorilla until we saw them. When we were at the chimpanzee exhibit little E made friends with one of the baby chimps. They were playing tag and the chimp kept chasing him against the glass. The chimp would get frustrated and hit the glass. Elijah drew a crowd and Conor was videotaping. It was definitely a hi-light from the day. We finished off the day on one of the double-decker buses and enjoyed seeing the rest of the animals on the second level relaxing.
It was such a treat to have everyone come down and spend the day together. We even waited for Kurt to finish work and all had dinner together- at BJ’s of course. The Turley’s won’t pass up pizza, pizookies and a baseball game.
This weekend is Nik and Rachel’s wedding in San Diego! We are excited to spend more time with the whole family and celebrate!
