Summer Saturday Nights at the Zoo

Saturday nights during the summer are super fun at our local zoo.  They open the doors free to the public on Saturday evenings.  There are lots of vendors and musicians on the summer schedule.  J heard that his friend’s band was playing a couple of weeks ago so we took the boys up there to check it out.

J’s friend, Brian, is the lead singer of Drift Session.  We listened to them play several songs before we went exploring.  Their style is very relaxed and mellow.  We heard a bunch of reggae and a few classic surf hits while  we were there.

The boys got a kick out of tipping the band.

The boys grew antsy after a while so we decided to see what animals were out.  Happily, we were able to see a cheetah at the newest zoo exhibit!  It opened in February and the cheetahs were apparently hiding out then because we did not see a single one.  We hadn’t been back to the zoo since February so it was nice to finally get the chance to see a cheetah.

It was a nice way to spend an evening out with the family.  The boys were wiped out by the time we got home!
