Weekend Adventure: Los Angeles Zoo

We headed to the Los Angeles Zoo today. We kept hearing that the L.A. Zoo is nothing much compared to the mack daddy of all zoos (the San Diego Zoo), but we were pretty wowed today. The L.A. Zoo is big, has tons of animals, and was really pretty. After getting lost and being completely exhausted once we found our way out, I don't know if we can handle the San Diego Zoo. This one whipped us pretty good.

At one time in my life, the zoo was my happy place. But I have come to realize something: the zoo is a smelly place. It smells of animals. More specifically, it smells of poop. Ew.

These guys were stinky.

Them too.

Koalas are cute, but smelly.

I had to hold my breathe a lot today. But, that's not the zoo's fault. It's the nature of wild animals to smell like poop. Thankfully, the zoo compensated for it by filling the air with the delicious scent of churros! Have you ever had a churro? Oh my goodness, they are like warm, cinnamon donut sticks. We see them everywhere we go, but haven't tried them until today. They are amazeballs. I would have posted a picture of me eating my first churro, but JD and I were both busy devouring it and couldn't be bothered with anything else. 

This zoo has a lot more animals than the Nashville Zoo. Beatrice and Penelope loved checking them all out.

The zoo has tons of monkeys. We had a good time looking at all of them, but none delighted us more than this mama and baby gibbon. I'm not gonna lie, after watching them for a good 10 minutes or so, I took Penelope out of the stroller and put her into the Bjorn. I wanted my baby monkey hanging onto me too.

We had a great day. The L.A. Zoo is super fun.
