weekend warrior: pittsburgh zoo

Last weekend, John and I just wanted to get away for the day.  So, we hit the road, headed west and spent the day at Ikea and the Pittsburgh Zoo and Aquarium.  I am such a sucker for zoos and aquariums - it was a blast!  So, here's an overload of photos.  May you live vicariously through us!

These guys were such show-offs!  They would run and dive and swim super fast and then pop out the other side.

I want this guy's life.
