We recently returned from San Diego where we visited my sister and brother-in-law and took in a few of the local tourist sites. Especially with The Little Guy in tow, we certainly couldn’t skip out on the San Diego Zoo. For a lot of walking at a warm zoo in the summer, I stuck with basic shorts and a tank under a cardigan to keep me warm when we jetted into air conditioning on occasion.
You have also seen a lot of these new shoes recently. I wavered in DSW when I spotted them on the clearance rack due to their funky polka dot and bright colored pattern. I wondered if they might be too much; after all, they did end up on the clearance rack… But when I slipped them on my feet and realized how comfortable they were, I couldn’t resist. Now I haven’t looked back. They really are so great, even for a long day of walking. I never thought I would be buying Keds after graduating from elementary school, but I may just have to invest in another pair at some point if they continue to treat my feet this well.
Regarding the animals, it’s pretty amazing how close we got to some of them. Aren’t the flamingos above so pretty? I don’t think I often see them with such a rich bright color. We also got to watch the jaguar above hunt for food throughout her cage while hearing a bit about her from one of the zoo keepers. I definitely recommend checking out the San Diego Zoo if you’re in the area and have some little ones who will appreciate all the animals.
