We went to the Oakland Zoo with our good friends the Holmes. I love it because it is close by and you can do the whole thing in a couple of hours. It is always quite the party with Niko and her kids. The kids never tire of having them over to eat or play even if they have been over 3 times that week. Taylor had a notepad and was drawing all of the animals. Niko's mother in law went with us and she gave the kids some tickets so they could go on the rides. We have never taken the kids on the rides. It is kind of separate from the zoo and not cheap. They got to do one ride each. Taylor is not super excited about roller coasters but we made him go on this little one and he liked it. Kate and Bridger and Conner loved the airplane ride. The sun was shining and it was so nice to be outside.
Another adventure with the Holmes.
