Well here I am back …blogging twice in two days, after two weeks of silence …well near silence as I did pop by one or two blogs as I was having withdrawal symptoms. There is still not much of a creative haven here at the moment but I am hoping to get my act together very soon ….just need a little mojo sent my way ladies …and gents. I still so want to do my journal and canvas and yes I think one will be a zentangle … maybe with a twist … but I think I will be also making a 6x6 or 8x8 album of a very special day out.
Monday was Ben and Jakes 2nd birthday and on Tuesday we all met up at Edinburgh Zoo …me armed with ice blocks and a picnic, all in my flowery shopping trolley…. the perfect accessory for a woman of my years lol
Ben and Jake helped with the map reading
It was so hot and humid that some of the animal houses suggested that visitors remained in the enclosures for no longer than 10 mins and many of the out door animals hid away in the shade.
The boys loved the day no matter what and totally fell in love with the penguins.
They were some large enclosures and then at 2.15 those penguins who fancied a stroll, parading around the green opposite, accompanied by the keepers.
I had to laugh as …after the penguins set off … one came to the now locked gate and screeched and screeched…I am sure he was saying; ’Hey fellers …you forgot me’.
Later we found that there was a viewing area under the penguin pool …it was brilliant. Ben and Jake were captivated and a little girl managed to get one to follow her fingers through the glass.
They loved the 'pretend animals tooand the big catsJake had to wave to everythingThere was so much to see and the boys lapped it all up ...it was a wonderful day and every one was happy but exausted
Needless to say 5 adults and 3 cameras and we missed the best shot of the day in the monkey enclosure …Ben had his face pressed up against the glass giggling at a very cute monkey when it rushed towards him and planted a long large kiss exactly where his lips were resting… chattered shrilly and then gave him another… he never flinched …just continued to giggle. We were so surprised and enthralled that when Emma said ‘ Did some one get that?’ we apologetically mumbled in the negative. lol
Sorry for the photo over load ... but I thought I'd add one of me too
Take Care xx
