We went to the San Diego Zoo a couple of weeks ago with our friend Michelle and her son Dylan. They are regulars at the zoo and are very passionate about animals and conservation. Last Christmas they adopted a tiger for Riley as a present so we decided to go to the zoo to meet him in person, errr in tiger.
We were beyond amazed at how connected Dylan was to these animals. He knew almost all of their names and gave us facts about the animals as we went about the zoo. Dylan was the best tour guide money can't buy, mostly because he is the most passionate 9 year old we've ever met and he gets so excited to tell you about these animals. It made my heart happy and I now have a new found appreciation for wildlife because of this kid.
