To start of our year with our first “do”, last weekend we headed off to The Royal Melbourne Zoo. I love going to the zoo and we hadn’t been since Jacob was in a pram, but we had talked about going quite a few times last year. The day wasn’t planned. I simply woke up and decided that it was a lovely day to visit the zoo, so off we went.
This blog post would not be compete without some cute animal pics.
Spot the difference :)One of our favourite things at the Zoo was the Keeper Kids area. here the kids can dress up as zookeepers, researchers, veterinarians and horticulturalists complete with activity area for each job. Jacob had an absolute blast playing vet. He bandaged tigers and kangaroos, took temps, gave medicine and checked out x-rays. Glad we headed here last as he didn’t want to leave.
I think one of the reason’s we kept putting off the zoo was money, but it really wasn’t that expensive. During school holidays, weekends and public holidays kids are FREE! It cost $26.50 each for Jeff and I (the big boys politely declined the invitation) and car parking was only $2.00 for 5 hours. There are beautiful grassy picnic areas where you can sit to eat either food you have brought with you or bought from one of the many kiosks.
So, what have you been talking or thinking about doing but just haven’t got around to? Let me know in the comments and then try to make it happen for you and your family.
