What I love about this picture is that it reminds me of the joy I experience when something amazes my children. I feel truly lucky to experience the world through their eyes. When people ask me how I handle the logistics of traveling with four young children, it is this feeling of happiness from sharing memorable moments that gets me through some of the annoying little details that come our way.
You can just feel their wonder in this shot. Getting this close to hippos, tigers, gorillas, polar bears, and orangutans, just to name a few, is what you can expect from the San Diego Zoo. The glass enclosures allow the kids to interact with the animals. The proximity inspires a sense of awe. We go multiple times a year and it never gets old. Often, we’ll just go for a short visit and have each kid pick his or her favorite animal to see. That way, we spend time at those three enclosures and the kids are happy because they saw “their” animal and we are happy because we were able to go without feeling like we needed to see the whole zoo.
