We made the most of the midweek sunshine and treated ourselves to a trip to our local nature center, or The Nature Reserve as it is now known. It’s had a bit of a revamp (and a huge price increase) Since we moved house we are actually closer now and we pass it all the time so the kids have been driving us bonkers to go there for a visit.
We were so lucky with the weather, it really was a beautiful sunny and warm day. Star was feeling good too. We set off in the morning and took our own picnic for lunch.
As always the littlies always love looking at the animals.
Favourite animals where the spider monkeys. They were so funny playing with their sticks. They also liked the meerkats, snakes and the giant tortoise. In fact they liked most of the animals and had lots of fun watching them.
Then Boo and the Little Man decided they wanted their faces painted. We had to wait for about half an hour for their turn. Daddy took Star off to look around the shop while we waited. It was the first time the Little Man had had his face painted and he sat so still, he barely moved a muscle, it was hard to believe it was the same little boy, he doesn’t normally stay that still, not even while sleeping!
The end result was two beautiful cats.

Star was a little nervous but I went with her and she pulled back the bolt and opened the door.
