Family Fun on Christmas Eve

On Christmas Eve, we took a trip to the Sacramento Zoo and Fairytale Town.
Every year its free to the public. I like to take the kids and let them burn off some of that Christmas excitement thats brewing inside of them.

Here is Kyla in front of Fairytale Town. She is following The Yellow Brick Road. You can buy a brick and be part of The Yellow Brick Road. 

My kiddos were being silly and got their picture taken in Emerald City! My son decided to be Dorthy. Its a cute picture of them.

We also visited the cute little gardens they have. 
I love this sign! I'm thinking of making one similar for my own garden.  

I wish I had a spot like this in my garden, so relaxing.

I love the plants. They are natives to California. I may have to add some to my garden areas.

They had 2 lettuce and cabbage gardens. Also some Chard in there.

These were in the area of Mr. McGregor's garden. 

Now to the Sacramento Zoo . We explored every inch of the Zoo.

I thought this tree was really neat! Although, I don't remember what it was called. Any ideas?

Lot's of flamingo's! 

This is one big Kitty, as little miss Kyla said.

The Zoo also has a new Giraffe area. Its very cool. There is a huge ramp walkway thet you go up and it over looks the area. We watched them for awhile. 

Such an interesting animal!

The Zoo had a meet and greet of the animals that day. Here is Kyla petting some kind of lizard, I cant remember what it was called. She wants one now! We will see. Maybe a smaller type of lizard. Any suggestions on small lizards that are 7 year old friendly.

All in all it was a great day!

Did you have any adventures over the holiday?

Happy Trails to you!!!


  1. Reptiles are very expensive if you don't have the set up already...lots of heat lights and bugs and such. I've never had a lizard, so couldn't recommend a specific kind. We could NOT go to the zoo on Christmas

  2. Hellow!
    I love your site, It is a pleasure to visit.
    I have added your site to my site.
    Please link my site to your site.
    Thank you!

  3. Hi Jenn,
    Looks like the kids had a lot of fun.
    The nasturtium seeds you sent me refuse to germinate. A friend sent me some from Australia. It did not germinate too. It's probably telling me to grow more local plants. Have a Wonderful Year in 2011, Jenn.

  4. One, Im so bummed the seeds didnt germinate! I wonder how hard lotus flower seeds you sent me will be!
