Last week we went to London for the day, to visit London Zoo. It was the first time the kids and I had been and we had a wonderful time there. It was pretty busy, with long queues to get in, but I guess that's to be expected in the Summer holidays!
We were there for the best part of the day, yet we still didn't manage to quite fit in everything - there really is so much there to see! The kids would have loved to have stopped and played in the adventure area and playgrounds, and It would have been nice to have seen some of the animal talks - especially the penguin show! But being aware of the journey home again, and little legs getting tired, there just wasn't the time!
Elizabeth and I watched the tigers for ages, with one sleeping just the other side of the glass panels. She was fascinated by their enormous paws. The butterfly house was pretty amazing too, it was far too hot for the kids, though I could have spent ages in there taking photo's of them all!
