Daddy's taking us to the zoo...

We live in the most special little village. It has just the right amount of everything. And it has one, very special thing: a zoo! When we first moved here we invested in an annual family pass, and boy has it paid for itself. If we are reading a book about a lion, Sausages and I can decide on the spur of the moment to walk down to the zoo and look at a lion, then we can draw the lion, roar like the lion etc. This makes me very happy. Husband is in the middle of two weeks of "holiday," and last week we made pizza dough one afternoon, and at a loss for something to do while it rose, went to the zoo. Here are a few pictures of my exotic neighbours:

Sorry about the cages - they wouldn't let me in to take better photos! Sausages is so lucky, and has no idea! Here is his favourite part of the zoo:

That last one is evidence that there was an educational side to the excursion. The pizza was also fantastic, by the way: goat's cheese and organic leaves from the vegbox. It was a lovely family day to lift the heart, even if it was absolutely freezing and we had to cuddle up together when we got home. Joy! I hope your Easter holidays are proving joyful too.
