At the zoo

We met some friends at the zoo today.  We paid to take the car in, which makes a visit so much easier.  No dragging the picnic about, we can whizz from one side of the zoo to the other.  The weather had changed completely from yesterday.  It was drizzly at times, and very windy.  Much more like autumn.
We drove around the Plains of Asia section. There are 700 deer (7 different breeds), and the camels.  Love the grumpy old camels.
The bears were really close today, eating lots of fruit that had been scattered about for them to find.
We walked round to the wolves and the moose.  The kids watched the wolves play fighting, and messed about being mooses (is mooses the plural of moose?).
After a quick picnic we went to see the bird show.  I love the bird show.  They're beautiful, especially the parrots.  The sea lion show was fab too, with 5 sea lions doing their stuff.  We've never seen so many!
The steam train was running so we took a trip on it, and played in the playground a while.
It was such a great day.  I think being there with another family changed the whole thing up for the kids and they really enjoyed it.
