Giants Baseball Game

This past weekend we took Timmy to a Giants baseball game!  He LOVES watching baseball on TV, so we knew he would love it!  He is at a really fun age to explore new things!  On a good day, we can get to San Francisco in about two hours.  However, on Sunday, it took us about 4 hours!  We did stop to eat, but there was MAJOR traffic.  To save some money, we used a coupon to eat at Carl’s Jr. on the way down, so we didn’t have to eat at the park.  I also packed a variety of snacks for us and a few water bottles.  I was super proud of Timmy, he didn’t complain at all on the ride down!  Once we got to San Francisco, it took us awhile to find parking because a lot of the lots were full. We found parking on Pier 30, once we parked, unloaded and walked out of the parking lot, there was a nice English gentleman that asked us if we wanted a ride on his pedicab, heck yes, we were running late!

 

Once we got into the park, we of course had to use the restrooms and then we went to find our seats.  It was mid 60’s outside, but sitting directly in the sunn definatkey made it feel warmer!  Timmy really enjoyed watching the game!

We headed out before the last inning just to beat the crowd, we ate a snack on some grass near the water.  It was a gorgeous day!

Sacramento Zoo

On Spring Break we headed to the Sacramento Zoo with my brother and his family.  It is only about a 45 minute drive from where I live, so it is a fun little trip.  This zoo has more than 500 native, rare and endangered animals.  Originally this zoo opened in 1927, and has grown since then.  When we first walked in, we visited the Flamingos and when I asked Timmy what color they were he said “o-o-o-orange” which was a bit true, they were more orange than pink!  We then saw the very large Hornbills and a couple of them were fighting over a branch, they are so big, it was cool to see.  We then went to see the red panda, he was sleeping like always.  The kangaroos were up next and they were hopping around for us, there was even a baby (maybe a teenager) I’m not so sure, lol 🙂  The snow leopard and the tiger were not out, but we did see the lions lounging in the heat.  We witnessed the orangutan playing around, and the lemurs came right up to the edge to visit us 🙂  The Zoo does offer a feeding time to feed the giraffes, but the line was so long we opted out.  A little guy I had never seen before was a fox, he was such a cute little thing.  And last, but my favorite were the otters, they are literally THE cutest.  For the kiddos, they have a playground, a train that you can hop on to take you around the zoo, and a carousel.  We were super hungry by the time we were done with the animals, so we headed to lunch!  All in all it was a super fun day for the kiddos 🙂
