Jumbo Elephant, Jumbo Elephant, you live in a great big Zoo!

Last Saturday, Jason and I took Kamryn to the zoo for the first time. Which Zoo, you ask? Not the Los Angeles, and we definitely did not take the long drive down to the San Diego zoo. No, we went to a quaint little zoo called the Santa Ana Zoo. I grew up going to that zoo and I just had to bring Kamryn and share that experience with her. It hasn't changed too much since last time I had been there. They still have a bunch of monkeys and about 5 other animals. I remember an ostrich, some cat that was sleeping and we couldn't see, some llamas, snakes, and a wallabee (sp?) Oh, and there was a beaver type animal too. But then, there was the elephant. Oh, we loved the elephant. Kamryn loved the elephant so much, that she even got to ride it with her Daddy. :-) Check these pictures out!











































The animals may not have been all that exotic, but to our little girl they were the most amazing animals she had ever seen. We loved our day at the zoo. (And as soon as Jason gets back from Vegas, we'll have some video footage for ya).

How fun that the elephants were there! Maybe I'll have to take Diego again.

That looks like so much fun. That's amazing that Kamryn liked the elephants enough to ride them! Most kids would have been to scared!

I want to ride my bicycle...oops, I mean elephant! That is really cool! I want to go now too. The ride makes up for the limited variety.

She's getting so big! And she's adorable. most kids wouldn't enjoy that. It seems she takes after her mom.

I thought the elephant only came out on Sundays? Awesome. I have a zoo pass thing and so we get in free. Except for the train which is way too much and you can't not take the kids on the train.
