Father's Day at Sacramento Zoo & Fairytale Town

This past Sunday, Jason decided he wanted to spend his Father's Day by taking the boys to the zoo and Fairytale Town! We packed the kids up in the car and took off to Sacramento for the day. They are really the perfect age for this kind of trip, everything is so amazing and fun to them and they do really great on car trips now. We took lots of pictures (naturally) and enjoyed the day completely!

We loved running along the Crooked Mile!
We walked into the zoo right as the wildlife show was starting. It was one of our favorite parts of the day. The zookeepers taught us how they train the animals and let us see a few up-close.
This hawk free-flew right over our heads to land on the stage!
The giraffe exhibit is getting a major over-haul, I can't wait to see it when it's all done! The pink flamingos are always fun to watch.
The giraffes are so amazing & beautiful!
Of course, the primates were a favorite too.
This orangutan was really checking us out.
