When we arrived, we immediately headed for the elephant enclosure as there is a reasonably new baby elephant there - about six months old. The crowd was huge, but we did manage to see the baby - but only just. She was surrounded by other elephants and kept disappearing between their legs!!
We spent ages walking around the zoo. We saw the Orangutans playing, went to see the Dinosaurs, penguins, bats, butterflies - it was just great. We saw lots, but there is still so much more to see - perhaps another day! Here are some of the pictures from today!
You need to click on this picture to see it large - the expression on the baby's face is amazing!
The last picture was taken in the Zoo Vet unit - explaining about vets and what they do. The TV screen was linked to an infra-red camera and the girls stood in front of it - they were fascinated!
And our day was just as good at home - the girls got in and decided they'd like to make cakes - so Kathryn made a chocolate mixture and Charlie made the vanilla mixture and we had marble cakes - with chocolate buttons pushed in for extra goodness. They were delicious - and all went very quickly.
I don't think the girls will be up early tomorrow - at least I hope not! I want a lie in! I'm absolutely shattered and am now off to bed with a nice cup of coffee! And a good book. See you all tomorrow.
