The Los Angeles Zoo...

I love Zoos. I loved going to The Buffalo Zoo when we lived there. Dante was 3 when we moved here so he does not remember that Zoo. Recently I have started doing some of the things that I use to enjoy doing. Going to the Zoo is one of them.  A few weeks ago we went to The Santa Ana Zoo. It is a very nice zoo and it does not take too long to walk through. It makes a great quick afternoon jaunt.

Monday, Dante and I went to The LA Zoo. We had the whole day and we needed that with the drive time. Dante does not have many interests. He loves books, anything electronic and animals. We had a great time. The Zoo is easy to get to, clean and you can see everything in one day. I will spare you the complete set of 340 pictures and highlight some of our favorites:


 Timon was posing for the camera...
I love how different they look from standing upright to laying down...
"What are you looking at?"
Nina and I love Flamingos... So took this one of "stretch" for her...
I love that the under side of their wings are black...
I love this photo... me taking a photo of Dante taking a photo of the Gorilla...

So statuesque...
We loved this Momma and Baby. Any and all monkeys are Dante's favorites. The baby would hang with Mom and then go a little ways by himself and then back to Mom. We watched them for quite awhile...
This picture reminds me of Curious George...
A close-up...
I... love... him....
Another Mom and Baby!
The contemplation of life... or "Mom I am bored!"
Tigers are my favorite Zoo animal... I have always love the tigers... Funny you would think it would be the leopards with all of the leopard stuff I own! This Dad was restless and moving around and roaring.
Isn't this precious?

I loved the legs on this guy!

This guy decided he needed a little splash to cool down!

we ended the day at the new exhibit... The Lair...

We had a great Mom and Son day. I love creating memories with the kids and 
we love the LA Zoo!
