Trip to the Zoo

RHS hosts an annual birthday party at the zoo every year, and this time, I decided to take the girls.  Free tickets, and Vivian is old enough to enjoy the zoo now, so it really was a no-brainer.  This time, we started at the end (since we have always bailed before we got there) and visited the tigers, petting zoo, kangaroos, beavers, deer, playground (where we had lunch) and then headed over to the polar bears, with a detour through the tunnels to see the sharks.  Then, we headed over to the RHS party where we saw some of the staff, picked up gifts for the kids and watched the beginning of a puppet show before Annelee decided enough was enough and we left. Both girls were fast asleep on the way back in the car ... a sign of a good outing, I think.

Shark attack!
Books are more interesting than sharks!
