We're Going To The Zoo

Hi blog friends!!

So over the last couple of days I haven't really been up to that much apart from yesterday when Bob and I went to the Dartmoor Zoological Park and if any of you have seen the film 'We Bought a Zoo' with Matt Damon and Scarlett Johansson, this is the zoo that the film is based on! It was such a fun day and I love going to the zoo and seeing all the animals although it's probably better when you're younger and can't actually see that the animals don't look very happy and have gone a bit mental by being trapped in a cage BUT apart from that I love the zoo and it was a really lovely day!

We left around midday and stopped at Morrisons to grab a few things to keep us going so we got some apple and blackcurrant juice boxes, some dried fruit and seeds, some dried apple crisps (which are amazing) and Bob got a twix and I got a twirl (cheeky I know but we couldn't resist)

When we got to the zoo, which is only about half an hours drive we were definitely ready for some food so after looking at the capybara (our new fave word) we headed over to the cafe, outside the cafe there was a pen with meerkats in and they had the most adorable baby meerkats ever they were so small and I just wanted to grab one and bring it home! So after spending about 15 minutes heart eyes emojiing over baby meerkats we decided to get some food! Bob had a BBQ burger with chips and I had a massive bowl of cheesy chips and I don't even care they were delicious haha! When we'd finished lunch we saw that there was going to be a Birds of Prey talk/show so we went into the petting area to kill some time and we saw bunnies, pygmy goats, we petted a deer and saw the cutest wallaby! By then it was nearly time for the talk to start so we sat down on the big front lawn in the blazing sunshine and watched the show, we saw an owl, a falcon and hawk which was exciting! After the show was finished we started to walk around the zoo, it's not a big zoo at all so it didn't take very long to walk around but they have a great variety of animals including my two favourites, wolves and tigers!

So that was my day yesterday, I had such a great time and the weather was perfect although it did mean we couldn't see every animal as some were at the back of their enclosures having a sunbathe, but we can forgive them for that as the sun only appears in Devon once every 5 years haha! Hope everyone is having a brilliant day!

Lots of love
