Last Thanksgiving when I visited Kelly and Jeff the baby panda had just been born at the National Zoo. I wanted to see it, but the crowds were so big and lines were so long that it was impossible. This year we went back. The baby, Tai Shan, had grown up a ton, but it was still cool to see. You don’t get to see pandas much. The only other time I’d seen them was when I lived in San Diego when Hua Mei was born.

Other zoos I’ve been to:
» Lincoln Park Zoo
» Bronx Zoo (& Butterflies at the Bronx Zoo)
» Honolulu Zoo
» Milwaukee County Zoo (& Canada Geese Take Over Milwaukee County Zoo)
» San Diego Zoo
» San Diego Wild Animal Park
