We're off to the Melbourne Zoo on the weekend. The middle pink is turning five next week and given the choice of a party and a family trip to the zoo she picked the zoo. This is no great surprise to us as she has always adored animals. As a result we've been talking zoo animals over tea for the past few nights. (And making some rather interesting animal noises while we eat!!)
The littlest pink is nearly jumping out of her skin with excitement about seeing the monkeys. Perhaps because she shares numerous characteristics with them!!
The birthday girl says she loves them all but really wants to see the Zebras because they are so stripey.
This biggest pink is a sucker for anything baby and is heading straight to the baby elephants.
Personally I'm a big giraffe fan.
Not sure but it might be a Ross/Friends/Madagascar thing or maybe just because they are such a bizarre and beautiful animal.
The Dear One says he likes them all but secretly I think he's a tiger man.
So, come Sunday we'll be heading off in 'Blue Bessy' car for a trip to Melbourne and a day out at the zoo. I haven't been for years myself so am just a tad excited too. I'm also pretty impressed with their admission charges - I was expecting them to be so much more.
Do you go to your local Zoo? What's your children's favourite animal to visit? Any tips for a successful Zoo trip day out?
