Weekend goodness: Oakland Zoo

This post has been a long time coming - last month we took Mr Oliver on his first real zoo trip! I'd heard good things about nearby Oakland Zoo and although it wasn't as big as I had been imagining, it was still a fun day out. We saw lots of different animals - monkeys and giraffes, elephants and alligators, snakes and frogs...

Oliver was very serious - just absorbing it all. In typical toddler fashion, the animal he got most excited over was... a stray cat. Yep. In the middle of the bear enclosure. With his reaction, you would've thought he'd seen some rare endangered animal, but there you go - apparently he really likes cats!

Next time I think we will try the San Francisco Zoo for something different!


  1. Looks so fun! We are still waiting to take Olivia to the zoo. I think in another month or two she will really get a lot out of it!

  2. In the past month my toddler has seen just about every impressive zoo animal you can see...and a moose...and he has not been excited about any of them! All he wants to do is run his Thomas train around the zoo!


Thanks for reading, your comments make my day :-)
