Today we went to the zoo!
Or, a zoo, at least. The Elmvale Jungle Zoo, to be precise. I mean I’m not going to dwell on it too much here but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t have some doubts about this place (and, by extension, zoos in general I guess). But… the animals did all look healthy and there’s nothing more magical than seeing children’s faces light up while watching monkeys, so let’s just move on shall we.
This was the first activity we crossed off of my family summer bucket-list. Chris, Theo and I met up with our friends Kauri and Maeve; and we took lots of pictures while the kids ran off in different directions. Most of the animals were quite lively and I may have seemed facetious about the whole ‘faces lighting up’ thing above but really, it’s pretty cool to watch.
Her face may look calm but she is just barely containing herself.
