(and mind you i have a lot of favorite things)
are 1. Disneyland and 2. The Zoo
i wish i could tell you i went to disneyland yesterday,
alas, i did not and the zoo will have to do.
and the zoo did do.
i love the zoo
and to tell you the truth,
i'm not quite sure why
staring at animals who are placed in glorified cages that are supposed to look like their natural environments is a little, well, disheartening when you really think about it.
but let's not think about it.
because all that aside, the zoo is awesome.
you get to see animals who seem at home in their own little environments and can travel from the deserts of africa to the jungles of asia with mere steps. you can take pictures (which to me seems like cheating but i do it anyway) of a lounging gorilla or a grazing giraffe.
the zoo brings out the kid in me,
and i love it.
especially when i get to go with lots of people i love too.
enjoy some 'cheating' animal shots
nothing beats the zoo + fall foliage
more fall foliage
not a flamingo
too cute to be poisonous
is one arm longer than the other?
dino egg friends
'osie' makes the cutest turtle
and i think we all could pass for prairie dogs
hooray for the zoo!
