“Let’s go right now. Let’s go to the zoo.”* (Big bonus points if you can name the movie that quote is from. Spoiler alert – the answer is at the bottom.)
After my mom and I took Quinn to a little zoo-type thing on his birthday, I decided Q was ready for a real zoo. So yesterday, on a whim, Q and I took off for the San Francisco Zoo. (Look at us being all spontaneous!)
Here are a few animal photos from our day at the zoo. Sorry for the crappy photo quality. In the chaos that was our morning, I forgot the camera and had to make do with my cell phone.
|Q was actually more into the exhibits than I thought he'd be. We watched the zebra for a while.|
|He really liked the brightly colored flamingos.|
|Real life giraffes! Q has a zoo book about a baby giraffe, and he was enamored with them.|
|Random guy took our picture and didn't even get the giraffes in the picture. Q was too busy shouting at the giraffes to look at the camera.|
|The lion exhibit|
|Under that water lurks a hippo, and he's is surprisingly scary looking.|
|So that's what an anteater looks like.|
|This zoo had a train, too. Quinn didn't like it as much as the other train. That was good because this train cost $4 per ride! No way was I going around more than once.|
|My friend's little girl watching the grizzly bears|
|A bald eagle -- why doesn't it just fly away? There's no cage...|
|The noisy chimpanzees made Quinn laugh. I think they were his second favorite after the giraffes.|
*Did you figure out the quote? It’s from Jerry Maguire. The kid that played Ray was so stinkin’ cute when he was little. Now? Meh.
