After the holiday season, Jason and I usually take a trip to the San Diego Zoo and San Diego Zoo Safari Park for the weekend. This year was no exception. We usually wait a few weeks after the holidays before taking our trip but I wanted a chance to see the zoo's Christmas lights. The lights were fun, but I think I'd rather go with less crowds when the animals are easier to visit.

Even though it was really crowded and a bit chilly it was fun and we got to see a lot of the animals, even some of the super special new babies! Here are some of my favorite pictures from the trip.

We spent the last few days at the San Diego Zoo and the San Diego Zoo Safari Park celebrating our 1st wedding anniversary. We got married at the Safari park so it seemed like the perfect place to celebrate. We also love any reason for a weekend at the zoo.

A couple week's ago in my recap of a week of Squshies I mentioned going to the San Diego Zoo. Today I finally sat down and started going through all the pictures! Always quite the project because we take a ton of pictures.

So remember when we went on vacation weeks ago? I've made a few post about the last part of our vacation like our visit to the San Diego Zoo and Legoland. Well now to start with the first part!
Well the first part of our many weeks away started off with lots of family and friends coming in for our wedding!  We got married on June 23. I'm very slow at blogging,  but I'm finally taking the time to sit down and blog about. Plus I've now got pictures to show you and blog posts are more fun with photos.

Of the many weeks we were away, the final week was spent in San Diego doing fun things. Yay vacation! Eventually I'll write about the other weeks too, but I have pictures of the last week so I'm starting at the end. 
One of the places we visited was the San Diego Zoo! This was the first time I've visited the zoo when I was already in San Diego so I didn't have to get up super early to drive 2.5 hours to get there. They also are currently doing the night zoo for the summer so they were open about 4 hours later than usual. Extra sleep and extra zoo time! This is the first time I visited the zoo since I've been seriously making Squshies so it was fun to see the real animal versions.
