Throughout the week, the boys pestered us to take them to the zoo. So on Saturday, we relented and spent the afternoon at the Oakland Zoo. It's not a particularly good zoo, but it is close by and a visit requires little planning or preparation. In addition to seeing the animals, we visited the small amusement park next to the zoo for a train ride and the minicar ride.

At home again, Punky asks, "When are we going back to the zoo?"
