Los Angeles Zoo

It's been a few years since we've been to the Los Angeles Zoo. Actually the last time we went to the zoo, Jojo looked like this:

We usually like to go to the San Diego Zoo but that is quite a distance from where we live and since we had some extra time yesterday and a coupon we headed over to the Los Angeles Zoo. First of all, I have to say that I have never really liked the L.A. Zoo. I always saw a lot of wasted and empty space. I am happy to report that this has changed a ton! They have done some major renovations and have added some beautiful exhibits. The zoo has really changed so much and since we arrived after 12:00 it wasn't even busy...actually at some exhibits we were the only ones there!

It was "Boo at the Zoo" so there were some real cute Halloween decorations.

Jojo loves snakes and so we made our way to "The Lair"... a new exhibit for us. We loved this exhibit!

I could watch the gorillas ALL. DAY. LONG! They are one of my favorites.

I could watch this guy all day too but I think he was watching me!

The koalas are so cute! The Australia exhibit is pretty amazing!!

The boys behaved so well which I think added to such a wonderful visit to the zoo. We took our time, sat and relaxed, and headed to whatever animals the boys wanted to see. In comparison to the San Diego Zoo, the L.A. Zoo is fairly small but there are a lot of hills and we got in some great walking!

Natalie, I just can't believe how you and Jon's boys have grown. That's such a cliche, but sometimes you just have to say it anyway! It was a delight to visit the LA zoo with the three of you!
