Our family loves birthday parties with all of the wonderful cake and decor. What do we like even more? Experiencing wonderful adventures together. I especially like an excuse to get away from all of the sugar that comes from birthday parties. This year, we took our adventure to the Sacramento Zoo for a day of sun, fresh air and learning.
Sacramento Zoo Birthday Adventures
We start our adventures in the first logical place – getting a map. As my kids have gotten older, they’ve become obsessed with having a park map. My little man quickly picks out the zebra and lion as his choice of animals to visit. Our birthday girl sticks with her favorite since infancy, the giraffes. The giraffes happen to be one of my favorites too. I can’t help it. I love their beautiful orange markings and their eyes are beautiful.
The hardest part, of course, is saying good-bye. The kids love the animals and activities offered by the Sacramento Zoo. It’s grounds are very easy to navigate and does not get overly crowded. If you’re looking for more activities, explore the other areas of William Land Park. Across the street, you’ll find Fairytale Town which is another family favorite.
