A day at the zoo

To celebrate Holly's second birthday we decided a trip to our local wildlife reserve would be fun. Holly loves animals and was very excited when we explained about all the different animals she would get to see on her 'special day'.

We bought some bird food which Holly enjoyed feeding to them with some help from her Pop.

These were the smallest horses I think I have ever seen. I thought Holly would enjoy them because they were so tiny but she really was not fussed on them and gave them a wide birth.

I like to read a lovely little book called 'the foolish tortoise' to Holly so we took a special photo of this little turtle to take home.

In fact, Holly loved the turtles so much she didn't want to leave and added it as a new word to her quickly expanding vocabulary.

Even Isla had a lovely day and was very taken with watching the birds over her Nan's shoulder.

When all the walking got too much, Holly hitched a ride on Dad's knee as he is in a wheelchair at the moment following surgery.  But poor Pop had a even heavier load to push!

It was a lovely way to celebrate the life of our lovely girl, with close family and friends. The weather could not have been better, another long balmy day under the southern sky, bliss.


  1. Looks like you had a lovely day and your little miss really enjoyed herself :)

  2. What a nice way to spend the day with the grandparents and Mom and Dad and little sister - a day I sure she wont forget.

    Here is to a new week!


Thank you for stopping by, I always love reading your comments.
