San Diego for the Weekend...

I went to San Diego this past weekend to visit Shelby and Dave. It was lotsa fun! We went to the San Diego Wild Animal Park!!!
Here is Shelby being a monkey with the gorillas...

Ashley and the Giraffes...

Dave with the Elephants...

Bird Habitat number 1- there were so many cool birds! And they were SO close to us too!

We went on a Safari and saw this giraffe up close in it's simulated natural habitat of Africa! (That is Shelby on the left)
Dave loves the owls...

The only thing better than a zoo? A zoo with a petting zoo!!!
This wasn't our favorite deer, but it was the biggest and most hungry, so we fed it a lot of pellets and Shelby tried to kiss it, but it wasn't up for that.
Our FAVORITE deer only had one eye- This is a pic of the big hungry one again...
We spent A LOT of the day hanging with Simba and the otha lions: Daddy lion, 2 momma lions, and 7 cute baby lions!!
We watched them play just 30 (or so) feet away!Daddy lion chillin' on the land rover...
Daddy lion is sleepy... this kinda looks like a sphinx in Egypt! Yeah, we went there too...
Next, we visited the 2nd Bird Habitat!
This is our special bird friend (did not fly) in the bird habitat.
He hobbled around with his ruffled feathers and looked up at the people.
We felt bad he couldn't fly, so we fed it most of our nectar... ...that, and he was the only bird we saw in that place for like 20 minutes...Finally we caught a flying one, too.

This is Flat Tristan, our little niece Tristan sent me this flat doll as a class assignment. It was my job to take Flat Tristan around and take pics of her doing stuff to send back to Tristan. Here is Flat Tristan with Shelby and Dave...
Flat Tristan at Bird Show...That Meerkat on the right tried to eat Flat Tristan! We took this picture right before he noticed we were invading his territory....
Flat Tristan and Pelicans...Flat Tristan in her natural habitat...

Shelby and I took a trip up to Irvine to visit Derrick and went to the Golden Spoon! (Irvine's Honey Treat)...Shelby and Ashley at the Golden Spoon...
The End!
