On Tuesday of our week long vacation Tia, Daddy, Mommy and Rylan loaded up and headed to the San Diego Zoo. We woke up early ate breakfast, got ready, and headed out. On the way there Rylan took a nap, so he was rested and ready to explore. The San Diego Zoo is incredible and Rylan loved all of the animals. However, there is a lot of walking, but well worth all the great animals you will see.
The giraffes were a hit, especially the baby one, she was so cute!
Here is Tia helping Rylan get a better look at the flamingos.
This guy was fun to watch, because he got really close to the cage. Rylan kept roaring at him.
Daddy and Rylan making an elephant trunk and mimicking their sound. The elephants didn't respond, but Tia and Mommy got great entertainment out of the boys.
This was one of the tigers we saw, you can kinda see the other one in the background. They were beautiful, and they also got roared at by Rylan.
Daddy, Mommy, and Rylan in front of the huge elephant statue. The San Diego Zoo is different in that they have workers everywhere in with the animals. The workers have microphones and are educating everyone on the animal who's cage they are in, and you can ask them questions. When we saw the elephants they were getting baths and pedicures. That must be nice.
This was probably in the top two of the day. The "Gobabas" as Rylan calls the Gorillas. There were two of them wrestling all over their cage. But the majority of the time they sat and fought right in front of Tia and Rylan. So the two of them had ring side seats. One time they hit the glass wrestling and startled Rylan, but not enough to make him want to quick watching.
The other animals in the top two were the goats. They weren't even part of the actual attractions either, they were considered the petting zoo. But Rylan has a thing for goats, he isn't scared of them, and he loves to mock them with his own goat sounds.
This is to show you how elaborate the dress and performance is. It was fantastic, I would do this again and again.

All five of us feasting on small dragon's (that is what our waitress called them).
