You know, ever since our last outing in San Francisco we’ve been busy busy busy. Definitely no more couch for me. Every weekend we’ve been out, so much so that it takes me a while to get through the pictures.
The weekend after the beach we went to San Francisco again, that was two weekends ago. Alan’s cousin graduated from San Francisco State University and they threw a party for her in Daly City. So we decided to go to the zoo before we headed off for the party. We piled a bunch of kids into the back seat and headed off.
Ok not a whole bunch, just two of Isabelle’s cousins.
Good thing we didn’t make a whole day of it. It was cold. I was dressed warmly for the weather by home and wasn’t really prepared for cold weather. I don’t think any of us were. That’s why Isabelle has a skirt AND pants on. If we had another coat for her we would have put that on her too. It was COLD.
The kids had fun. But you know what the biggest hit at the zoo was? Guess.
The gift shop. The gift shop is right in front by the entrance and the cousins were pretty excited about it. They got over it quickly and wanted to look at penguins. But the long cold walk there went past ANOTHER gift shop where Isabelle saw a panda toy. Pretty much from then on Isabelle was itching for the panda. We looked at animals but I think in the back of all the kids’ minds was the gift shop. They looked at the animals but not with any super excitement.
The cold probably didn’t help much either. No one wants to stand around staring at animals when they’re shivering in their shoes. Next time we’ll have to go in warmer weather or bring bigger coats.
