Hey everyone! Elissa and I made a quick trip down to San Diego this weekend with Bethany and Dallas. Not too much to report, just your basic San Diego stuff. A few hours spent at the Zoo and we also did the brass ring carousel on Saturday. Then Sunday was Sea World. I'm not going to do too much of a written trip report because I'll let the photos speak for themselves, but I do have one rant....
"What does the word SOAK mean?"
Obviously people have NO IDEA, and no matter how many warning they give about the "Soak Zone" at Sea World, in fact they even have an audience participation song about it before the dolphin show, these idiots sit down in the soak zone, and then when the first wave of water comes, you see them all scatter and move to higher seats, trampeling over people wreaking havoc, etc.
C'MON PEOPLE!!! What do you THINK is going to happen when you sit in the "SOAK ZONE???" Are people really THIS stupid? Apparently the answer is in fact YES, because EVERY SHOW we went to, as soon as the water started flying into the audience all hell broke loose.
I really think we saw some of the worst displayes of stupidity in humanity this weekend.
Ok, onto the photos and a big thank you to PhishyBrewer for the Sea World tickets!
First stop, San Diego Zoo! I don't quite get what all the hype over this zoo is. I mean, it's nice and all, but it's just a zoo.
Dallas gives the zoo his approval.
We saw some Koala's for our Australian friends, and who knows, maybe we'll be seeing these guys in person soon! ;)
The Meerkat's were a hit for us....
...well, at least for Elissa!
This guy's just chillin' in the sun waiting for all his hunnies to come over and hang with him.
This guy looks JUST LIKE ROBB!!!
The best part of the day! Capybara's!!!!!
For those of you who don't know, these are GIANT RODENTS!!! RatTums would have been proud!
It's a good thing there are these signs....
...it's a bad thing that Robb can't read! =)
"Hey, anyone want an ICEE?"
Genetic splicing is in full effect at the San Diego Zoo. Here is the "three-assed Zebra."
Time to take the skyride over to the reptiles.
Yay for big tortoises!
Double YAY for the water turles having sex!
Just outside the zoo is one of the few remaining brass ring carousel's in the world.
We all like the horses....ESPECIALLY Elissa! ;)
Can Elissa get the brass ring?
No! Because Robb got it! "...and all I got in return with this pretty little ticket."
Now THAT is my kind of carousel! Gigidy!
More photos to continue below.....

What the hell did you do to the giant turtle things to get them to actually walk?! I've never been to San Diego but every time I've seen those things anywhere they're just kinda lying there... I've always wanted to poke them to see if they're dead.
I really want to see the Clyde and Seymour show, I saw parts of it on a special the travel channel had on Sea World Orlando and it looked awesome. By the way I am surprised at you Robb, all those animals and not even one "Gimme some candy" quote
