Field Trip to the San Diego Zoo!

Summer time here in the desert is the time we hibernate and hide indoors until the temperatures are bearable again. But, occasionally, we get a chance to escape and go somewhere like San Diego. A couple weeks ago, we went on a field trip with our homeschool group to the San Diego Zoo and had a wonderfully mild and enjoyable day! The temperatures were only in the 80s (much better than our 110s here!) and it was such a nice day!
We also got to take a photo of our kids in the same spot we took one about 10 years ago - by the polar bear sculptures. I have to dig out the old one and put them side by side, but I am sure it is a remarkable amount of change in these precious gifts from God!

It was fun to see them feeding the apes - that one in front is a good catcher!
Taking time to enjoy field trips with our kids is something we love to do in the summer (at least if it gets us out of the heat!) and they are growing up so fast, I don't want to miss any opportunities to connect with them. How about you? Are you enjoying any summer field trips? Tell us about them, please. We would love to share your adventures, too.
