Twilight Tuesday

In the summer, the Sacramento Zoo hosts twilight Tuesdays. We missed most of them, but went to the last one for the summer. The zoo is open late, until 8, and they have live music and food and drink specials. It was really fun! The weather was cool and the animals were more active because it was later in the day and not as stiflingly hot as it usually is. We enjoyed the music while we were eating our dinner (people even bring their own blankets and chairs, and picnic dinners) then walked around for a while. We are going to have to mark our calendars for next year so we don't miss out on all the fun!

The band that was there was great!

Standing like a flamingo

The red panda was still sleeping, but he's so cute just hanging like that!

An active lion was pacing his enclosure.

One of the snow leopards-I don't think I've ever seen them awake before!

Drew took this picture of us--he's starting to be quite the photographer
