Sunny Day in February

Yes, it doesn’t happen that often does it, sunny days in February I mean. Just last week we had snow, and today it’s raining and miserable, but yesterday the sun was bright and it was fairly warm, just perfect for a trip to the Nature Centre. It also happened to be Dad’s birthday so it was really nice to have a day out together.

We let the Little Man loose from his buggy and all three had a real good run around. The girls were intent on giving names to all the animals they saw. First up were the goats and the ostriches. The Ocelot was beautiful but also very sleepy so we didn’t get to see much of her. There were some gorgeous little monkeys, some with gold fur and some with beards, so very cute (but I did notice how sharp their little teeth were!) Dad took the girls in to see the bugs and Boo came out traumatised by the tarantula…mmmm, guess why Dad took them in and not me? I do like the snakes and lizards though. We managed to fit in a play in the little playground where the kids burnt off their remaining energy. So much so that Star decided she just couldn’t walk to the bus stop, and Little Man slept all the way home.
We can’t wait to go back in the summer with a picnic!

    It has been a lovely week for getting outdoors, freezing cold but lovely to see the sun and have it dry. Looks like your girls were having a wonderful time and Happy Birthday to Dad!
