Summer Days Out {The Ordinary Moments}

This past week has been a bit of an upheaval for Moo and H. They have been mega bored and have constantly wanted to go out. Its not so easy to walk to the park anymore since we moved, but we always planned to take them to the zoo at some point this summer. With all the boxes unpacked and the house looking reasonable, we picked the best day for weather and yesterday packed the car with a picnic and made our way to Colchester Zoo.

We have been a few times, but when the children were younger. It was such a chilled fun day out. The husband goes back to work next week, after having a 3 week break. Its been great and this was the last big thing we had planned to do. We managed to find a new playcentre which has been built ready for summer 2014 so after spotting all the animals, both Moo and H managed to let of steam whilst me and the hubby chilled with a cuppa!

On exiting, we were conned into buying teddies! {as if they don’t have enough!} but they seemed rather chuffed with them!


I am linking up with the lovely Katie at Mummy Daddy Me for her wonderful linky The Ordinary Moments
