a trip to the zoo...

We have just had half term holiday here in Denmark. So last Thursday I decided to take the girls to one of the local animal parks. I thought well its raining so there won't be many people there. I was right and we had our rain clothes on so we were happy and dry!
here they are, for some reason Viola thinks that closing her eyes is smiling...well shes always proved to be different, not much change there. We walked for around 3 hours and saw loads of animals out enjoying the rain. Minnas favourite were the giraffes, she was so obsessed with seeing them and couldn't believe her eyes when we did!
We felt as though we were quite close! they are BIG creatures, very beautiful and graceful even in the mud! Minna had to draw and paint one the next day...
Pretty cool to say she isn't always that keen on drawing!

What I loved the best would have to be the cheetahs. I turned back to call Viola at one point and there was a cheetah staring at her (on the other side of the fence of course) and she was just saying Hi to it whilst licking rain drops off the fence, yummy.
Then further on in the enclosure with the young cheetahs Minna was having a conversation with one, which went on for so long I managed to video the end of their contact!

Well hope you enjoyed that!
 I don't tire of it!
Right I might have to do some embroidery now, so I blog about that at some point... :) enjoy this lovely Autumn weather...
