Oji Zoo Daytrip

With the kids still off from school and our first visitor to Japan (Ilena's brother Matthew) yet to arrive until Friday, Ilena took the kids along with another family to the nearby Oji Zoo in Kobe.

They had a great time, saw some great animals (including Pandas, which we had never seen before), and as an added bonus got to play on an awesome elephant trunk slide.

Afterward, at a nearby children's play-place, the kids got to build some huge Lincoln Log structures. This building project was part of a kids art exhibition that was going on at the nearby Hyogo Prefectural Art Musem. Many of Jacob's classmates had art on display at the exhibition too. Definitely a good day-trip!
