san diego zoo!

Even though we have a zoo membership, we rarely go all the way down there. We usually go to the Wild Animal Park, which is quite close to us. So it really was so much fun to go to the zoo with our playgroup the other day, since we haven't been in over a YEAR! :)


Andrew is soooo into animals right now, referring to all animals as "honey" and treating them like family... I am so proud of him because of that! So needless to say, the petting zoo was quite the hit. Andrew felt like he needed to take care of all the goats, sheep and bunnies like they were his own. :)



My little "Jeff Corwin" as we are referring to him lately.. chatting it up with the elephants who, oddly enough, were following Andrew down the road as we were walking away haha! Andrew watches the Jeff Corwin show each week with amazement, telling me all sorts of funny animal facts and pretending his plastic snakes are "real" and that he is holding and catching them just like Jeff Corwin or the Crocodile Hunter would. :) "Animal Afternoons" on Discovery Kids is our new favorite TV channel!

Anyways, we had a great time and Andrew and I stayed until closing time at the zoo. Can't wait to go back!! Hopefully it won't be over a year again until our next visit. I have a feeling we will be back chatting with all of the "honeys" very soon. :)

He is so adorable Holly! And how awesome that he exhibits such a caring and compassionate side at such a young age! I think that says a lot about how you must be raising him. Good for you Holly Mommy!
