Mama Ginger Tree doesn't live here anymore.  I have moved to The Norwindians.  The names have changed, but we're the same family.  Please add The Norwindians to your reader!

Spring Break, Day Three

Today was zoo day.  We spend a lot of time at the San Francisco Zoo, but I decided to mix it up a bit and head across the bay to the Oakland Zoo.   My friend J and her kids met us there to join in the fun.  

We got there shortly after the zoo opened, and left about 20 minutes after closing time.  We saw all there was to see, rode all the mini-rides, and ate lots of snacks.  We rocked the Oakland Zoo.
By the time we pulled into our driveway, we were all spent.  It was one of those days where all I wanted to do when we got home was throw our dusty clothes in the washing machine, throw the kids in the bathtub, put some healthy food on the table and go to bed.  

So the kids had a simple dinner of pasta, edamame and sliced strawberries.  I scrubbed them down in the bath and they crawled into their beds and fell asleep within minutes.  The dishes are done, the washing machine is humming and my wine glass is full.  Day three of Mama Ginger Tree's adventure camp was a success.  Here are some of the highlights.

A rousing game of duck, duck goose.

More ice cream of course.

Future biker girls?  Should I be worried?

High flyers.

One flying ace was not tall enough  for flight school.  Maybe next year.
