We're going to the zoo....

Well, alright. We've been to the zoo!
It was so much fun. I went completely overboard as I tend to do. And of course, because it was something that I organised, it rained. What is it with that? Our first family vacation, in SUMMER, it rained too! Oh well, at least this time we didn't crack the shits and just go home. Alright, I may have had a little cry in the car on the way up worrying that it'd be us and my mother sitting at the zoo with 70 sandwiches, cupcakes, honey joys, biscuits and dip. BUT.... it was actually a successful party.

There was about 20 of us there, Sam and family from eb, Kristy and family from high school. Brad's sister Kristie and family, Mum, Dad, Saxon. To be honest there was the perfect number because I was able to socialise and chat to everyone.
So even though it rained I had a great day. The boys also really enjoyed it. It was a shame that most of the animals that we saw were asleep and Hunter couldn't see them but we will go again. It was easy to get to (Brad actually remembered the way from when he went with school and his parents!!) and Brad was fantastically helpful- making sandwiches and carrying eskies. He didn't whinge once about the weather either!

Anyway, here are some pics:
