This weekend we headed to the LA Zoo, mostly because Penelope wanted to go and also because we love monkeys. We didn't realize so many people would also make Sunday their zoo day until we arrived at the parking lot, which was almost completely full! The parking attendants hadn't seen anything like it before. The line was partially due to the opening of the Sea Lion Cliffs immediately greet visitors as they walk into the zoo. We learned the huge line could be conveniently bypassed by shelling out about 55 bucks for an annual pass which we happily paid.

The first thing we noticed after checking out the sea lions was the profusion of shops, stands and restaurants inside the park. We looked at the baby animals in the Winnick Family Animal Care Center, the sign explained that the babies weren't with their mothers because the mothers weren't taking care of them. After that we walked to the aviary which wasn't too impressive compared to the Aquarium of the Pacific's Lorikeet Forest that has more birds plus bird food in the form of nectar.
