On the second day of our trip to San Diego, we decided to check out the San Diego Zoo. We had been there once before (pre-kids), and what a blast it was this time with the boys! I mean, seriously, what's not to love about animals and the zoo?!? This place is huge, and you can spend all day there and still not see everything. We did get to see a lot of different kinds of animals from giraffes, to elephants, zebras, monkeys, pandas, you name it! The animals are behind electric fences, which makes it appear that they are out in the open and you can get right up close to them. It's so much fun watching the animal behaviors and how they interact with each other and humans. In fact, when we went to see the panda exhibit, the momma panda was chowing down on some bamboo, and then right before our very eyes she turned and, as my three-year-old loves to tell the story, "pooped!" We had an awesome time visiting the San Diego Zoo, and will definitely go back the next time we're in San Diego!

A must see spot in San Diego is the San Diego Botantic Garden in Encinitas! It was the first place we checked out on our recent trip to California and we fell in love instantly! Not only is this place huge and filled with so many gorgeous trees and plants, but it's also an amazing place for children. We made music, we created art with paint and chalk, we sent boats down a stream, we climbed up and down and in and out of a tree house, we matched the letters of the ABCs to plant-life...we did a lot and had so much fun! There are so many gardens to visit, and you literally can get lost and spend several hours here and not even realize it. The San Diego Botantic Garden is a wonderful place to go for a walk, and a great place to get closer to nature. It's perfect for both young and old and you won't regret taking the time to check it out!
