Tracy Aviary

While driving one day, I heard on the radio about Taco Tuesday at the Aviary. $2 admission plus 2 tacos. Done.


Hailey invited her friend Grace to come with us, because everything is always more fun with a friend. Right? We also invited Rara Park to join in on the fun.

Of course the girls weren't interested in eating tacos. No complaint from me! That just meant more tacos for Rara and I. Good thing I was a prepared mama and had packed crackers with cheese and meat that the girls could eat instead. (Those tacos were delicious, by the way.)



After eating lunch we made our way around the aviary. We saw all sorts of birds: pelicans, vultures, hawks, eagles, owls, flamingos, a peacock, parrots, toucans, and all sorts of tropical birds.






Honestly, the highlight of the aviary was not the birds- at least not for the small ones. They were more interested in the play structures that were scattered around. I guess I shouldn't blame them, they are kids. Kids just want to run and play!







Hailey and Grace found some maps listing the plants that were growing all around the aviary. They were so funny as they discussed where to go next and guided us on our journey. It kept them interested, so I just rolled with it.



I'd call the trip a success, even if those girls could care less about learning about the birds and more about roaming free. It's ok, we got out of the house, went somewhere different, brought a friend, enjoyed the sunshine, and ate tacos (or cheese and crackers).
