The Chinese name for red pandas is "hun-ho," meaning "fire fox," but the rain can’t extinguish Clark’s cute looks. 🔥🦊 Pro tip: Grab your umbrella! Rainy days are a good time to visit because the weather elicits unique behavior and minimal crowds. #firefox#redpanda#rainydays#sandiego#sandiegozoo 📷: Christopher Chain
Know who you are... and be who you are... UNAPOLOGETICALLY.
I am TIFFANY M. BALLINGER
Mother to Lael Andrea
Single mother at 19 and raised a daughter who at 12 years-old has an AMAZING head on her shoulders! I couldn’t be more PROUD of her!
At the age of 2 a paid model until she was 6. Dancer 4-6. Which is when she chose gymnastics. Making the decision on her own at 6 years-old! And some will argue kids don’t know what they want.
Honor roll student from day one. Leader since preschool.
I sit in awe as she is at my side during this journey life is bringing me on. Everything I have instilled in her she gives right back to me!
She understands life! She understands people! Everyone says how quiet she is. She is watching, taking the time to understand her surroundings.
Man I can just go on! She is one of a kind! And if I got nothing else right in life... I birthed Lael Andrea Ballinger and I am beyond honored to be her mother 💗
My face when I realize midterms are almost here... All joking aside, I forgot how good the San Diego zoo was until I was going back through pictures from last summer! I’ve been to quite a few zoos in my life, and @sandiegozoo is definitely is near the top of my list of favorites, if not number 1. But also how can you not love a zoo that has koalas AND pandas?! I had never even been to California before, but @southwestair made the trip from the Midwest so easy that I would go again in a heartbeat! #SouthwestStorytellers#contest
