last week we pottered off to whipsnade zoo. when i say we i mean me, rooster and Mr HPMcQ with a whole heap of other bloggers and their kiddies too. a grand total of 6 bloggers damson lane, mammasaurus, actually mummy, cheetahs in my shoes & being mrs c and our 10 children and one Mr HPMcQ. it was also Mr HPMcQs birthday.
it was a glorious day in many ways, the sun was shining, the children played really nicely together and a great group of what were online friends cemented their real life friendships further. they also sang Mr HPMcQ happy birthday and served him cake what else could any man want.
so without any further nattering, here follows a very photo heavy post, so no change there then! x
Ahhh happy times!
such a lovely day, gives the whole car disaster a happy ending x
It was a great day and so lovely to see the 3 of you again x
yes let’s not mention how long i focused on something that wasn’t even a hippo! ha ha next time actually daddy must come too x
What an awesome group of bloggers all together at one of my favourite childhood haunts! I remember having my 10th birthday party at Whipsnade. Is it still freezing up by the penguins? Fab photos as ever. Thank you for sharing with me on Country Kids
we didn’t have time to get all the way round, which can only mean another meet up right?
i am so jealous! i always wanted to visit whipsnade but never managed while we were in uk. lovely pictures!
maybe we could sneak a trip in when you are over for the MADs?
Awww – I want to go again soon. I nearly bunked off work to go on my own today but was a bit more sensible. Such a perfect day x
well you know we didn’t quite finish the tour you know….
Some really fabulous captures there, I can’t even begin to choose just one. So glad you all had a fab time together, wish I had been there. Mich x
there’s always next time!
What an AMAZING DAY!!!!
it really was a great great day x
That flamingo shot is awsome. Laughing at the hippos – they almost don’t look real do they?
Whipsnade is just up the road from me I’m gutted I couldn’t make this rendezvous but I was otherwise engaged.
We love Whipsnade though, in fact Granny took Ruby the very next day after you lot had descended!
i said that to Mr HPMcQ about the hippos, how squiggy are the baby hippos legs!
Simply amazing shots!
why thank you jane x
What a lovely day! I love the elephants, they are hilariously cute, lovely shots missis
the littlest one was really playful, however his brother was having none of it!
It was such a wonderful day and your photos are stunning. Not a fence in sight! I hope Mr HPMcQ had a fantastic birthday.
ha ha ha i know, jenny’s tip on the fence was outrageous! check out the cheetahs, shot through a fence that was. all about the aperture you know *taps nose*
It really was a wonderful sun -filled day and I know the kids loved it. We went back on Bank Holiday Monday and LMC just kept asking where all her new friends were!
oh bless her, well we didn’t make it all the round back so we are totally up for round two!
So jealous! Next time hopefully my car won’t be dead and I ca get there to be with you all!
last week was defo the week of the dead car! we caught the train there and back so quick!
Awww, awesome photos! I wish I’d been there . xx
