Hooray for Labor Day

San Diego's Wild Park is so much better then the zoo. Our season pass gets us into both of the two parks. I have to tell you that I had a bit of a hard time seeing all the animals locked up on display at the San Diego Zoo. We also went on a Saturday afternoon during the summer. So it was hot and crowded as well.

If you have to choose between the zoo and the wild park I highly suggest the wild park. I thought the experience to be a much better one at the San Diego Wild Park. It's kinda like a savanna and you get to see them in their element. The herbivores are out wandering their area looking for food. They actually seem "at home" there. The animals aren't in cages, and have a lot of area to roam around. We also went in the morning. I highly suggest a morning visit; 1) The animals are awake 2) You can find parking 3) Less people/shorter lines, and 4) Not as hot.

We also packed lunches and had a little picnic there. We really enjoyed the park and can't wait to do it again.

It's a long story, and I've told it too many times already so I'll spare you the details and just tell you we got great seats to the Padres game.

My mom was down and we only bought four tickets. So there were six of us in the four seats. It was still a great time, just limited room. The Padres won against the LA dodgers. There was a special fireworks show afterwords because of it being Labor Day. My boys thoroughly love the baseball games/Padres. They get wrapped up in the environment, as do I.

Wow a new post already! I'm impressed. So glad that you guys are having a good time there. Love all the fun things you're doing!

I have the same rule for any activity: Don't go on Saturday, Go right when they open, and don't go on a Holiday. I makes popular public places more bareable. I am so glad you and your family are enjoying your new home and State, but we miss you.

A season pass to two zoos??? That is awesome! We've never been to the Wild Park, we'll have to go there next time.

I haven't seen your mom forever. I miss her. I bet she loved coming for a visit.

That looks like one great fireworks display.

CA looks like a pretty fun place to live...lots to do.
