Christmas ’08: The SF Zoo
On the day after Christmas (I know, I know, I’m going backwards since I still haven’t shared the pictures from Christmas day)…anyway, on the day after Christmas, my mom treated us all to a trip to the San Fransisco Zoo. We had a lot of fun, and the weather was surprisingly perfect . Here are some of our pictures! And a warning…I just noticed there are about a bajillion-and-a-half pictures of Lily in here. My camera had some sort of attraction to her sweet little face.
Carter wore last year’s Halloween costume so that he could “match the lions.”
First, we found this lion. Carter thought it was pretty neat, but not quite the real thing.
When we saw the tigers, we asked Carter what he thought of them. His only answer was, “They don’t match me!”
After hearing lots of “I wanna see the lions. They match me. Where are the lions? They match me,” we finally made our way to the lions!
Carter gave us a big roar, but I think he was restraining a little bit, because so many people were watching him.
Just look at that round floofy lion belly…
Tim and Elaine!
Lily was dressed in her wildest outfit with a zebra jacket, and she was ridiculously adorable- as usual.
There was a lot of posing as different animals going on…
Lily waves to her fans:
Lily waves to her fans again…she must know the power she has…
When we got to the penguins, Carter looked at them, then looked at me….then looked at them, then looked at me, and said “Hey! They match you! You match the penguins!”
See the little penguins on the bottom of my shirt? I matched the penguins.
All the girls:
Lily will never be able to say that she didn’t get enough lovin’ growing up.
Here’s my sister and me…oh, no wait: that’s my mom. Sometimes I forget.
And I’ll leave you with this face that Tim captured. I’m not actually sure what he is, but he looks cuddly to me. or maybe not…
