Yesterday we were looking after our 3 nieces and as the weather was so good we decided to take them all to the zoo in Edinburgh. I had not been there for about 15 years and last time I was there I didn't like it as I didn't like seeing the animals in cages. Since then there has been a lot of conservation work done by the zoos and I now recognise them as being very important in maintaining the population of the world's most endangered species.
This was the highlight of the kids' day:
the penguin parade. We managed to get to get front row for this and the kids loved it.
I think even David and I enjoyed our day with the kids. Definitely something we want to repeat in the very near future.
