Is that confusing?! I have SOOO much to share!! We had a really great time in San Diego and I'm trying to go through all of the pics I took, so I can share some of our fun! I'm gonna do this in several parts (ummm, hence the title). There are A LOT of pics!
We left early Friday morning for our trip and aside from a few loud screeches, screams, yells, etc. on the plane (from Mr. B, of course), the trip there went smoothly. We made our way down to the baggage claim...this is where the fun begins. My curious little two year old saw a small box with a little handle on it and wanted to see what was inside. I turned just in time to his tiny,sweet, little hand flip the little knob up, Derek yells his name...sirens go off, a big red light starts flashing and the entire airport is staring! And laughing. I slowly walk away. He had opened up an AED...A.K.A, automated external defibrillator. Some annoyed looking gentleman slowly walked over, turned something, and the alram stopped. Whew! That was fun.
We then gather our bags and head to the escalator. Mr. Curious and now very independent insists that he carry his own bag up the escalator. I disagree. He yells. Derek insists it will be fine. So, against my better judgement, I say ok. He gets on, loses his balance and starts falling down the stairs, head first...face down. His little mystery machine suitcase goes tumbling down with him. Luckily, he had no visible injuries. And didn't really even cry...but it scared the crap outta me!! I told Derek I might need a drink!
So that was the first 20 minutes...it does get better ;)
I'm gonna go ahead and skip to day 2, for now. We went to the San Diego Zoo. The weather was SOO amazing! It was hot for California this time of year, but still really nice to us.
(You can click on the pics for a larger version if they are too little...*ETA* or maybe not...it doesn't seem to be working for this post, sorry!)
We started out with some misc. birds...the flamingos are the only ones I know the names of...Bryson was really fascinated and probably could have just stayed there all day and watched them...
So we move one...
We saw lots of birds (this was my favorite)
some tigers cuddling
two giant hippos...I guess also cuddling
and one fake copper one
a clouded leopard...
Ok...I'll post more animal shots on my next post, Day 2--Part 2 :D
The landscaping was sooo beautiful! That was really one of my favorite parts. I LOVE flowers, cool plants, etc...so here are some shots of some of faves...
I think the Hibiscus is one of my faves...
Don't know what this is but thought it was cool
And these were all over the place, in red also.
I have pictures of some of this same plant/flower from my trip to China last year.
Ok. Well...I also haven't posted A THING for Triple the Sketch in forever...so here are some from last month
and also a page I did of Bryson and I that I really love!!
Oh yeah, I was tagged on a friends blog...I will get that in here soon! I promise.
Hope you are all having an awesome Wednesday!
