I’ve been to California several times a year, over my entire lifetime, but I’ve only been to the San Diego Zoo once. This photo is from that trip.
The Lion King was (and dare I say, still is) my favorite movie, and Timon was, of course, the greatest character! I had a stuffed Timon doll, and begged my grandparents for a real meerkat every Christmas!
So, while most kids are excited to see the larger animals at zoos, I was crazy with anticipation at meeting these little cuties. Our zoo doesn’t have meerkats, so I thought it was just the coolest that they were at the San Diego Zoo.
And can I just point out my amazing Disney overall shorts?! Wow. This week’s throwback is filled with all sorts of awesomeness. ’90s for the win!
