We woke up and the sun was shining! We decided to promptly get in the car and head to the zoo for a family trip seeing as the hubby was off and it was a lovely day! Though on our way up. the rain started and even though it tried, it did not damped our spirits! Whenever we got there we just made sure to get our little girl a poncho so that she would be kept dry and happy! Out little mans hood on his pram was huge so it would cover him and keep him dry enough!
On we went, we saw lots of animals, but we were very disappointed that the bears were being kept inside! It was to make there enclosure better for them though, so that makes it ok! =] In Belfast zoo they have a very large hill.. we decided to ignore it and not go up to the top of it because last time if I remember correctly there wasn’t very much up there but our reason this time.. was the huge hailstones that came out of nowhere.. they were the biggest hailstones that I had ever seen! We ran for cover up at the monkeys! We ended up staying in there for about an hour.. and it was great! My little girl was looking through the glass when a young monkey came up to the glass and stuck its tongue out at her! It made her day, and seeing her so happy made us forget about just how soaked we had got running for cover!
These little lovebird Bats were my husbands favorite thing that he saw in the zoo! He got very excited by being able to see some! They were very cute as you can see! =]
We were disappointed though by the souvenir shop as we could not find a single thing that we wanted to get for the kids, nor could the little ones! So that was a bit of a let down as we really wanted to get something as a little memory!
