A Trip To The Zoo with Oma And Opa


The kids and I are currently in Germany to visit my family and friends, and yesterday we ventured to the nearby zoo for a little day out. It was lovely to spend some quality time with my parents and the kids, and we all had a great time, especially Becky, who enjoyed zooming round the picturesque grounds on her scooter, and my Mum, who just blossoms when she’s around the kids. 

The journey started with a visit to the petting zoo, where we were able to feed a big gaggle of goats, from super cute baby ones to full on grown ones. Becky was a little scared of the big goats, but she didn’t mind softly stroking some of the newborn ones, who were irresistibly sweet. 



We then carried on to see the seals and sea lions – who were very noisy. Becky thought they were very funny though! We also had “Jigsaw” with us, the little cuddly dog from Becky’s nursery. He’s accompanying her on our Germany trip, and of course he also came along to the zoo. 


A gratuitous shot of my cutie siblings together. Alex is looking a bit confused - he'd just woken from his nap. 



Then we went on to the donkeys – Alex liked them, too. And I just love to see how much my Mum is doting on the kids. 



As always, Becky – being the little joker that she is – goofed around, and so we took the obligatory goofing around selfie. 



Then we saw the giraffes (below), an orang utan and a lion, though their pictures didn’t come out as well, as they were caged. As we started to slowly make our way back, we also bumped into a beautiful peacock, and Becky spontaneously decided to call it “Melody”. What can I say, I have a quirky daughter! 



We ended the day at the zoo’s adventure playground and with a little picnic and ice cream. Oh, and another selfie with Alex. I just love how he gives me his (sloppy) kisses whenever he gets hold of my face. Such a cutie! I feel so lucky to have such wonderful kids.





A lovely day!

    1. Thank you so much! It's nice spending quality time with my parents and the kids. It's not that often, as we live so far apart, but it means more when we do have the opportunity.x

    1. Haha, thank you, she did love the kangaroo pouch! I wasn't really a fab of zoos before I had kids, but now I do have to acknowledge that they make for great days out and the kids learn so much, too! x
