A Family trip to the Zoo

Last week we were amongst a group of bloggers lucky enough to be invited along to Chester Zoo courtesy of Matalan for a fun filled day. Both the boys were extremely excited about going to visit the animals, little man keen to see the elephants and tiny excited for his very first trip to the Zoo.

Matalan had very kindly provided us with vouchers to spend online for a new outfit for the boys. So both boys were kitted out in new jeans and topsand the gorgeous woolly bear hats were left in the car (these are so cute and will definitely be worn throughout the winter) and exchanged for suncream

As we arrived at the Zoo we made our first stop the chimps were we listened into the talk and met up with some of the other families before heading to the picnic area for some lunch before setting off to see the rest of the animals.



As expected little man loved watching the elephants and the monkeys, whilst Tiny seemed in his element exploring the sights choosing the day to really get to grips with walking.





After watching the penguins being fed it was time for a refreshment stop for cool drinks and ice creams before moving onto the big bug exhibition.

One of favourite stops of the day was the Giraffes, and both the boys loved watching them feed and walking in and out of the sheds.


There is certainly lots to see and we finished the day taking in the sights of the butterfly house before heading of to the gift shop for a few souvenirs of our day.

We all had a fantastic day and were all tired out after a fun packed day. A huge thank you to Matalan.

  3. Thanks for this - Chester Zoo is a bit of a trek for us and I've been unsure whether or not to go but it looks great and the girls will love it.

  4. A super account. We haven't been to Chester yet but we had a good time in Twycross Zoo. The children loved otter feeding time and we spent a lot of time laughing in the monkey house when it was raining.
