A Day at the ZOO

How's your weekend everyone? Our weekend went mighty fine. Living in a new city allows us to go out more often. There are tons of things you can do here in San Antonio and plenty of places to see. Last weekend we decided to visit the San Antonio Zoo and Aquarium.

Their ZOO is huge. Too bad I did not charge my camera...I was not able to take more photos at the ZOO.

Admission is pretty cheap $10 for adult and $8 for 3-11 years old. We got a military discount so we paid $25 only.

After our ZOO adventure...we took a 20minute train ride....it was an awesome experience. We definitely would like to do it again.

The train ride is pretty cheap too. Admission is only $3 for adults and $2 for 3-11 years old.

The aquarium looks awesome, wow that is cheap. Our local zoo in Edinburgh charges $30 and that's only the admission. Remember and charge your batteries next time.

Those birds reminded me of the kind of birds that we found at Buffalo Zoo. It's great to see having good time there Dhemz.

What a wonderful experience you had at the zoo. You also have fantastic pictures there. Napansin ko nag slim ka na naman, hehehe, sexy na naman, ahehehe, happy na naman si Gorio, lol. Ang cute din nang mga kuha ni Akesha. It's about time that she has a baby brother kaya double time tayo sa prayers natin for that. Ang ganda rin yung kuha nang mga pulang ibon, ang gaganda nila, ang sarap barbecuehin, joke lang, lol. Thanks for the feel good post. God bless you all always.
