We already went to the San Diego Zoo a few weeks ago, but we did it again when Grammy and Lilia came to visit. It was a last minute decision based on weather, so I took the day off work, and we headed to the zoo. We got there almost when the zoo opened a little after 9am and got front row parking. Since it was a Wednesday and it was overcast, there were no crowds. In fact, we may have been the only ones on the whole bus as we shuttled from one area to another.
This zoo is too big to see all in one day. Last time we missed the whole children's area. This time we missed the aviary. But we did see a mossa and a pangolin, which were both firsts for all of us.
The end of the day brought a small $5 toy for each of the kids. They all ended up with the same rubber bat, which was a fitting souvenir since we didn't see any bats.
