The thing I was most excited to do when my parents came to visit was to take Ellie to the San Diego Zoo. Ellie loves animals. She watches birds in the backyard like it's her job. She squeals and sits up tall in her stroller when we pass a person walking their dog, or pass by the ducks in the pond, or when a squirrel runs across the path in front of us at the park. On Wednesday morning me, BJ, my mom and dad, JaLayne, Aaron, and Ellie all piled into the car and made the nearly two hour car ride down to San Diego.
We made a pit-stop at the restroom, bought some water and sunscreen at the gift shop, and we were off. The weather was idyllic (like it always seems to be in southern California), and Ellie was excited and rarin' to go.
We had such a wonderful time. I hope to go back again, and again, and again.
