Recently, we went to the Zoo/Safari Park, to celebrate my eldest daughters 9th birthday. It was a super hot day, & most of the animals were in the shade, which made driving around in a hot car not fun!
We saw monkeys. In fact we saw a monkey almost escape out of the enclosure by hitchiking on top of a coach!!
We saw Zebras. I love how their stripes continue from their skin to their mane.
We got up close with the penguins, & it looked like they were having the most fun!
& the giraffes, who were having a good munch.
Pygmy Marmosets roam around part of the zoo. Sometimes you wont see any of them & other times, they are everywhere you look. This time, fortunately, they were feeling sociable, & so we got pretty close. If you look carefully at the photo, you'll see that this Mummy Marmoset has 2 little babies on her back, so cute!!
I didn't get as many photos as I'd hoped as my camera battery died, which was a shame. But I got to experience it with my girls, rather than being behind the camera, watching them experience it. It's a tough one to balance, when to experience it with your kids, & when to record it
So far, our summer holiday is going very smoothly. We don't have a set routine for our day, which is a relief after doing the school run all year. We have enjoyed days out, zoo visits, seeing friends, having picnics, exploring, & we have enjoyed days at home, playing, relaxing, crafting, baking, watching films. Bliss!!
I've been using my free time (by this I mean those odd moments where the kids are occupied with their own things) to be creative. I have a few projects on the go & one completed project all photographed ready to show you. The kids are occupied at the minute, so I'm using this time to create some blog posts!!
So, what are you up to?
