Field Trip!!

Just another day at the zoo...

Only this time with 40,000 of our closest friends who also wanted to celebrate Chinese Lunar New Year at the SF Zoo!  We went with some friends to spend a beautiful Spring day at the zoo, not realizing that EVERYONE else had the same great idea!!  So I was able to get some pictures of the dancers and the lion dance but they all have the back of somebody's head in them :)  Since it was the Year of the Snake they had a live feeding of the Green Anaconda (not native to China)- wow, that's a BIG snake!  There were different little learning centers scattered throughout the zoo talking about different animals of the Chinese Zodiac but we kinda skipped those.  We did have some delicious Orange Chicken from the cafe- the SF Zoo has pretty good food!  I'm trying to think what animals we saw that can be found in China and I'm coming up kind of blank- there was a Rhino but I'm not sure if it was Asian or African.  I'm sorry, there were just too many people there and we had 5 kids we were trying to keep track of !  So I will just leave you with a few pictures I took and wish you all a Happy and Joyful New Year!!
