Now as my husband had his last exam on Wednesday he also took the rest of the week off to recharge before going back to work next week. Yesterday we basically did, well not that much until lunchtime. After lunch, we visited some family.

Now today, today we decided to have a family day out. Myself, the husband and Mems. It was awesome. Our last proper family day out was on Mothering Sunday back in March so I was excited for this. Also Mems was only 4 months old in March, and there’s a surprisingly big difference between a 4 month old and a 7 month old.

Today we went to the zoo! To Marwell Zoo as a matter of fact. It’s a really nice zoo too. Or at least I thought so. So did Mems but then she’s never seen any other zoos so has nothing to compare it with. She liked the giraffes, was fascinated by the monkeys and started a conversation with an owl. Well she cooed and made noises at it anyhow so I’ll take that as a win.

I’m seriously considering taking out an Annual Membership. It’s not too far away for an afternoon/day out and it’s not as if I have anything else taking up my time. Not to mention it’s a change from walking up and down the village. Plus it’s educational for Mems. Yes educational that’s exactly my excuse… ūü§Ē

Here are some of the animals we saw today. (Also a Lego T-Rex – the best of a load of fantastic brickosauruses that were dotted around the zoo.)
