Thank you for all the supportive comments here and on Facebook! You guys are seriously the best. I'm out of my slump and feeling more upbeat about the whole food-allergy thing.
I wanted to post these pictures from when I took the kids to the Tracy Aviary a couple of weeks ago. We went with N's sister Miranda and my cousin Youngshin and her daughter who are visiting from Korea.
The highlight of the visit was feeding the conures. You can buy tickets ($3) and go right into the birds' cage and feed them apples from your hand.
E was very excited about the prospect of feeding the birds but, predictably, once we were inside it was a little much for him.
The aviary was doing a lot of construction when we were there in preparation for the summer crowds which was a bit of a hassle to deal with. But all of the exhibits were open and it was nice seeing the birds. Hand-feeding the conures was definitely my favorite part. If you want to feed the birds you need to purchase tickets at the front gate when you come in.
