A little while ago my mum decided she wanted to take Noah and his cousin Isla to London zoo ..... Little did she know everyone else wanted to go!
So me and my gang, mum and dad, kelly and the girls - (Isla and Esme) all headed towards the zoo on a cold Sunday morning!
Jon has never been to London zoo so he was pretty excited and the boys were extremely excited.
The night before the twins were doing all their monkey expressions and Noah went on about how he really wanted to see a squid ..... Which I told him was unlikely as it wasn't an aquarium, didn't seem to stop his hopes lol!
We all met at 11 by the gates, we drove, Kelly and the girls got the tube and mum and dad got the train and tube!
Isla was the girl with the plans, pen and notepad in hand ready to list everything we had done and wanted to do!!!
Everyone really wanted to see the Tigers
and the twins wanted to see the giraffes (giraffes can't dance is one of their favourite books)
We went into the butterfly house and saw lots of beautiful butterflies. One even landed on the twins bobble hats!
We saw the Penguins at penguin beach, one was rather noisey which made everyone laugh!
We saw the gorillas, and the new baby gorilla .... Very sweet
We all brought a picnic, so at lunch time we all sat down and tucked in. Hot coffees and teas for the grown ups as it was just so cold!
We went to the Rainforest and saw lots more lovely animals there. One little chap even wanted his picture taken!
I Love London zoo and will definitely taking the boys back again and again!
