Children’s Fairyland has been a place that Emma have enjoyed having a membership to this year. Our favorite is to pop in for just a short while and catch a puppet show during the week. Today was a member’s only day where they offered special events around the park for the families in addition to their usual attractions. It was a relaxing day of soft animals, face painting, flowers and fairies.
This afternoon we visited the Oakland Museum and it was the first Sunday of the month so there was free admission. We like to visit the Blue Note Cafe on Sundays for live jazz music. Unfortunately today we had just missed the set! We still stayed for a little lunch and then went out to see the koi fish and turtles. Today we saw really big fish and some small fish in the turtle pond. Emma loved to see the activity under the water.
We blew bubbles in the garden and ran into some friends. Afterwards we finally got admission stickers to see an exhibit. Emma could only last through one room (hence why I visit on free days!) so we walked through part of California history. ^_^
I was surprised to see part of an airplane in the middle of the room. Emma was so excited to get into a real airplane and it was great practice for us. She did not want to leave her seat. I told her we could take an airplane soon to see Grandma & Grandpa and she liked that idea very much. ^_^
