The Living Desert






Kail's preschool had a field trip to The Living Desert (our zoo) on Thursday. The girls loved it! I think their favorite part was the butterfly exhibit (mine too. . . it was indoors!). And of course they loved being with their little friends. It was overall a pleasant experience minus the meltdown by Kail at the end of the trip. I think we will not be heading there again until at least November. . . I can't believe how warm it's getting here ALREADY. And unfortunately for my kids, I'm not really a zoo person. . . (unless it's the San Diego zoo)!

Brooklyn woke up on Thursday with the flu, she was SO disappointed that she couldn't go - glad you had a good time!

Ok, I'm jealous about your warm weather. One day, we will get there.....
Kail is looking more and more like you!

The girls make darling butterflies! Did any land on them in the exhibit? And Kod, great job on posing the giraffe family!

could it have possibly been better than our break-the-Sabbath-Wild-Animal-Park trip a couple years ago? animals & scorching heat do not mix! we miss you guys! love the butterfly pics!

Mine waited until we were in the restroom for their breakdown. But rest assured they hit the wall at about the same time. Overall, I think they did pretty good considering the heat and all that walking.

Looks like fun. I really like our zoo, not pushing the double stroller up all of the hills and the heat but other than that, I enjoy going. Glad you posted!

It's not bad, but I agree, nothing compares to the San Diego zoo. Actually I like any zoo where the weather is a bit more, should I say, coastal? Like the San Francisco Zoo is almost on the beach and it's beautiful. (and nice and cool) I haven't been to the butterfly exhibit here though, maybe we'll have to give it a try.

I love the pictures of your cute little butterflies! Looks like you guys have been having fun at the beach/sea world etc... I love mini vacations....I need them at least once a month :)

Zoo trips...they'll be a million more of those. I think I have already been 4 times on field trips to the Zoo and Mimi is only in 1st grade. I don't know how. They always have a blast though. Cute pics.

Did I never comment on this? I guess I thought I had because I did over the phone. Right after I had jumped the gun and said "I just got passes let's go all the time!" Crazy kids+ public+ heat+ $17 barbies+ dirt of any sort= no fun.
