San Diego Zoo

Last weekend we had a fun little get away to San Diego. We drove down on Friday night and used some Marriott points to stay the night there. In the morning we loaded up Isaac in the jogger and went for a run through Balboa Park. Next we headed to the zoo. We had some free tickets and thought that Isaac would like to see all of the animals.

Here he is looking at camels with dad.

And looking at the birds with mom.

This bird exhibit was probably the most interesting thing we saw. Not because of the ducks or flamingos, but because of what happened while we were watching. Some other big bird that was hanging out in there ate one of the baby ducks! It was really sad to watch, but also kind of amazing because the bird swallowed this duck whole and you could see it going down his long skinny throat. I felt really bad for the little duck and the mommy duck too.

Isaac's favorite part of the day was snacking on the flyer that they handed us at the entrance.

Cracker didn't get to come with us to San Diego, but he was well taken care of. He had a fun over night date with his girlfriend Lucie.

Isaac + Cracker = Best Buddies!

It's been almost a month since we last updated our blog, so I figured I better post something. I decided to look back over the pictures I'd taken recently and see if there was anything worth posting. Here's a sampling of what I found:

Isaac & Cracker in the morning...

...and at night.

In the backyard...

...and in the pool.

In the living room...

...and in the office.

What a funny pair! Isaac & Cracker are best buddies. They follow each other around all day. Now that I think of it, I am actually missing some pictures of these guys. I need to snap some of Isaac trying to follow Cracker outside through the dog door, and Cracker laying under neath Isaac's crib during nap time! I'm glad that they like each other so much. Isaac is constantly laughing and giggling at Cracker or crawling after him and even pouncing on him to give him a hug. And Cracker loves every bit of the attention.
