Tanganyika Wildlife Park - COVID Phase 1

May 4th, Monday was also the start of Phase 1 in the COVID Safe at Home order. Which meant things were OPENING! YAH! We had bought a season pass to Tanganyika Wildlife Park at the beginning of March when they had a sale, not knowing they'd be shut down for over a month before we could visit. They opened with restrictions, none of the interactions or experiences were open and we had to reserve a time slot to visit. They were open to season pass holders only. It was a little cloudy, but it felt great to get out of the house. We were only there for about 45 minutes, time to walk around and see everything. Lots of various animals. This is a privately owned facility, it was kinda odd... kinda like we were in the backyard of some rich person enjoying their private pets. It was nice, the landscape was nice, the cages seemed small.

Kids started off in masks but it didn't last long, and there weren't many people there so we were easily social distancing.

Bike Ride and Star Wars Day

Sunday May 3rd we went for a family bike ride. Stopping at a playground, then Kyle went the rest of the way to pick up lunch from Jimmy Johns (across the street from the hospital) It felt good to get out. Even though the park was 'closed'. We weren't there long, just to enjoy lunch then biked back home. 

Monday May 4th, being Star Wars day "May the 4th be with you" Called for a moving night of watching the next Star Wars, We are 5 movies into it.

May 2nd

I picked up an umbrella from Costco. We quickly learned the sunniest place in our backyard is RIGHT where our picnic table is which makes eating dinner outside very HOT. I first got a cheaper sun screen we attempted to hang but it wasn't going to work out so I returned that and just got an umbrella. It has a solar panel on the top with lights underneath, which is fun, but who knows when we'll use the lights since we are in bed before it's dark HAHA. Here's Mary enjoying life :-D 


Have lots of things blooming 


The kids having some fun with go noodle and cosmic yoga. 

May Day

Our church did a drive through May Day basket pick up. It was fun to get out and do 'something'. Kids wanted to wear their masks for the fun of it even though it wasn't necessary. 

That evening our neighborhood had a 'party'. It was a front yard party where a lot of people just sat out and eat their dinner and waved to each other. Here's Thomas and Kyle's capture of Photo of the Day, lol. 

We hoped on our bike and did a ride down and back, me with Mary and Thomas then Kyle did a ride with Emma and Thomas. There was a gal doing up and down the road and took these wonderful photos. It was nice to 'meet' some of our neighbors. 

Ended the evening with showers and some troll play.
