lions and tigers and bears - oh my!

yesterday, being wednesday, i took the kids to taronga zoo.
it has almost been 2 years since we last went for connor's 6th birthday.
the kids and i invited Pat, (Grandma - anthony's mum) to come with us and we met Dallas and her girls there for the day. We left home super early as i didn't know what the traffic was going to be like and you wouldn't believe it but we got there from Blacktown to Mosman in 1 hour during peak hour! coming home only took us 45 minutes.
Dallas has a down pat plan when she hits the zoo with the girls, so we tried to obide by that to some degree but shanice and connor do like to do their own thing too, lol.
as soon as we arrived we hit the souvenir shop as it was that windy, shanice was freezing so we had to get her a jumper to wear as hers that she had on was too thin. so the buying started early, and i was going there with a plan to only buy a few drinks as i packed lunch!
we saw the new Southern Ocean exhibit where are the seals and penguins have moved to. It was lovely and had a great feel to it.
I chose to take the kids this week as i "thought" that it would be quieter with next week being school holidays - well, i thought wrong. there would have been about 6 schools there, you couldn't get away from them all!
here are a few of my fav pics from the day. It's hard to choose when you take 164 of animals, lol
