Friday was Joy's birthday, and we celebrated by going to the San Diego Zoo. I took a lot of pictures, and I'd like to share some with you.
The zoo had a section called the Ituri Forest, which just happens to be very close to where we will be living in Congo. Needless to say, we spent a lot of time there, looking at the animals and reading the signs. This is a monkey.
This is an interesting duck...not really a zoo specimen, but pretty colors nonetheless.
Here's a bouquet of pretty flowers that are found in the Congo's Ituri Forest. I like flowers--Joy does too!Here's a male Mountain Gorilla. Pretty interesting. These guys are found in the Congo rainforest.
This peacock started showing off all his feathers, but only after a bunch of people pulled out their cameras...no joking!
