petting zoo at the library

We were so excited to visit the petting zoo at the Lakeview library. It has been a couple of years since they had it (stupid pandemic) and we were both looking forward to it. Of course the rabbits are the favorites but all the animals were fun and full of personality. Unfortunately I did not get a photo of the alpaca but it was very soft and had a cute face.

In the library Emma submitted her first twenty books for the summer reading program and received a free book and family passes to the Oakland zoo. It was a happy surprise to receive the zoo passes. maiki and I were just discussing a visit and noted I could rent a wheel chair or we could take a shuttle tour. I love the Oakland zoo and am looking forward to visiting with maiki for their first time.

Oakland Museum and Oakland Library join together

Yesterday we planned to visit the main library, which is open on Sundays, but we discovered not until one p.m. so we went a little further to the museum. I realized that it was first Sunday and the admission was free but it was more crowded than usual. We arrived just in time for a fun gathering. It turned out that the Oakland library and museum planned a fun event for kids in the museums’ gardens. Clover made a book, jumped in the bounce house, ate a snow cone and popcorn, got a caricature drawn, and hula hooped and threw balls around in the grass.
