Our sweet friends are pass holders to the San Diego Zoo, so they get 4 free tickets to share. Today, they blessed us with a trip to the zoo... a place I feel like I live in on a daily basis.
We have never been before, so it was quite an adventure. We took our picture in a photo booth (a tradition Dan and I started long before the kids were born), and the girls got to press pennies for their penny books (a fifty-one cent tradition we started after they were born).
Lilly wanted to see the pandas (since that is her school mascot), Iris wanted to go to the petting zoo, I wanted to visit the elephants, and the boys were along for the ride. When we left, the girls realized that we didn't see the gorillas or the giraffes... there's always next time.
