Palo Alto Junior Museum & Zoo

Whilst reading some magazines, I came across a link to a mini zoo in Palo Alto, California - The Palo Alto Junior Museum & Zoo. I gathered a few friends who had kids of the same age as my son and decided to check it out.

Slithery Adventures - Bay Area

There is always a need to keep kids busy. And summer is when you have to really look around for stuff to do. 2011 was when I was searching around for toddler activities for my 2\3 year old. I landed on various websites which gave me ideas. But there was one particular activity that caught my eye. This post may have various opinions about taking children, their safety etc. It's a personal decision no doubt, every one will have their pros and cons. However, I personally wanted to experience it. This is all about an experience with lizards, snakes and pythons. You do not have to read on and can drop off here if you wish. Click on Read more to see the rest of the post.

Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Park


They are the widest, tallest and the oldest living trees on earth! Visiting Sequoia & Kings Canyon, brings back memories of our trip back in the summer of 2007! It is located in the Southern Sierra Nevada in East California.

Entrance via Highway 198 @ Hospital Rock 
We drove up via Hwy 198, a very curvy route as compared to driving back home on Hwy 180. No doubt it was very scenic as we were driving alongside Kings River. We camped at one of the campsites within the park. Always fun to camp under the stars and amongst silent bears that visit at night ;-). We had one that opened an unclosed dumpster just where we were camping. This is pretty common in California's parks so don't worry :-) Here are a few things we did over a weekend.
