17: While we were in California for Christmas, we visited the San Diego Zoo and the Living Desert in Palm Springs. At the Zoo, we saw elephants, zebras, cheetahs, lions and all sorts of other amazing animals God created. At the end of the day we went on a tram ride to see some more animals, but just as we started, the tram broke down and it started to get dark. In the end, we didn't see any animals on the ride :) At the Living Desert, we got to get up close and personal with all sorts of animals and creatures that live in deserts. Your favorite part was being able to feed Pona the giraffe.
