If it is every "fine Sunday", which I don't think is the intent of the statement nor is it logical, "take" would be OK. But I believe it should be "took" (past tense).

Welcome to the forums, Annie.:hi:

Please note:

1. A better thread title would have been My parents take me to a zoo.

"Thread titles should include all or part of the word/phrase being discussed. (Avoid phrases like "HELP!", "Urgent!", "translation please", "how do I say this", and similar expressions.)" (Extract from the Posting Guidelines).
