LA Zoo

Andre and I went to the LA Zoo today with a couple of our friends from church. We really had a good time. I think it was actually the first time Andre really enjoyed the zoo, as he knew where to look, and new a lot of animals and the sounds they make. He really enjoyed roaring at the tigers (there was a mom and three cubs), watching the flamingoes, but I think his favorite by far was the gorilla exhibit. We must have spent almost half an hour there. He kept on saying 'monkey' and imitating the sound they make. It was really cute. Just like his babushka, Andre loves flamingos
One of my friends forgot her stroller, so Andre was nice enough to share his with her 18-month old daughter Avery. We just reclined the back all the way down and they both fit pretty cozy in there.
Cute Avery - such a girly girl

Hippo was surprisingly out of the water, considering how hot it was
