Before we went to Hawaii, Tanner and I left Sarah at home, and we headed off to the greatest place in Orange County. I know what you are thinking, and no it is not Disneyland. The wonderful, mysterious, tropical place that I am writing about is, wait for it.......The Santa Ana Zoo. This zoo has it all: Free parking, $6 admissions, Farm animals (four pigs, a couple of goats and chickens, oh and a cow), Monkeys (four different types), Exotic birds (8 of the same birds), some sort of Mexican Horse thing, a Bald Eagle (broken wing included), and a couple of sloths. It also has a train ride, merry go round, and the Elephant from the movie Operation Dumbo , starring Danny Glover and Ray Liotta (the elephant was on tour, he will be back in October). The San Diego and LA Zoo have nothing on Santa Ana.
Tanner just can't wait to go see the animals.

If you look closely, you can see some turtles.
I think it is dead!!!

Tanner loved seeing a monkey.
Choo Choo!!!

Did you know this???
Tanner had a blast. We are psyching up for our next trip, hopefully we will get to see the elephant (and ride it, it is only $5).

Cool! Sadia love the Santa Ana zoo because of the elephant ride. We love the Santa Ana zoo because of the free parking and $6 admission fee. Maybe we can all meet up when the elephant returns and make a play date out of it?! :)
