My daughters and I visited the San Antonio Zoo with my Dad last Monday, Columbus Day, because there was no school that day. I haven't been in several years. It was very hot that day.
We saw many animals and even went into a butterfly house. I think my favorite exhibit was the lions. There was a Mom lion with 3 baby cubs, from what I could see. I think they just made their public debut at the Zoo this month.
I decided to bring my nice camera along, and filled it up with photos. Here are some of my favorites!
The majestic tiger with her scratching pad - a tree stump.
There were 3 Hippos total, and they were all sleeping underwater with brightly colored fish. One of them was young and/or a baby.
This fat little Shrew from Africa was so stinkin' adorable. Here he/she is mid-yawn. I posted a video on Facebook last week of the adorableness.
I honestly have no idea what kind of birds these are because they have so many. But I like this picture and the birds are pretty.
The Jaguar was up and about.
A small monkey lounging in his tree.
Mom Lion with her babies. When she finally decided to look at the camera and you could see the cubs' faces, I ran out of room on my SD card. I did get a pretty good picture with my phone camera though.

After we walked through the entire zoo, we rode the Zoo Train. It's a small train that's fun for kids and runs about 2 miles through Brackenridge Park. We also visited the Japanese Tea Gardens which are right next to the zoo. It's a large garden in an old quarry with ponds of Koi fish and lots of flowers and trees. The kids had fun and it was a pretty good day.
We hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday and thanks for stopping by!
