92 Years Young (almost)

Another very busy weekend hosting family for Nanna's 92nd birthday bash!

Saturday was spent at Paradise Wildlife Park in Broxbourne, Hertfordshire. The weather stayed warm and dry and 16 of us plodded around the park with cameras in hand trying to compete with my Uncle's (terrific) photos. I have to admit to having "lense envy".

(Uncle John with his terrific camera and lense)

Usually my favourite animals to see at a zoo are penguins - but it seemed they were being kept in. We did see one naughty penguin trying to "run away" and hide behind a bush - but he was soon caught by the keeper and put in the shed!

I admit to being a bit scared of Emu's and ostrich - I'm not sure what it is about them....

(You lookin at me)?

The big cats did it for me this time - I just want to go in a have a cuddle!
I even took a paw picture - although some would say all my photos are paw!

And then, of course, there are always the monkeys! Always at their best when having a tea party!

Best of all was that Queen Nanna had a lovely time enveloped by her family! Heres to the next 92 years!!!!!!!
