Today was amazing.
We all got up at a decent time (around 8am), did the usual morning stuff, told Tilly we were going on a picnic (I packed the picnic) then we headed to the zoo.
Its about an hour or so to get there, both Tilly and Hamish fell asleep in the car, but when we arrived in the carpark, Tilly took one look at the sign and exclaimed ‘We’re at the zoo!” (we hadn’t told her where we were going).
The whole day was just one of those where everything goes right. We saw all the animals we wanted to, the kids were so excited but so well behaved (they usually are, but you know how kids can be when you’re out for a big day) everything was relaxed and fun! Both managed to stay awake on the drive home, Tilly chatted the whole way (yep, the entire hour-plus journey) and we topped it all off with McDonalds for dinner.
Truly a day the memories are made of.
