Seeing as the weather was looking promising, we packed the kiddo up nice and early this morning and headed off to Symbio wildlife park. We arrived just after they had opened, so it was nice and quiet and not too hot.
I honestly think she would have run and jumped on top of a kangaroo if we had let her - we were having to restrain her from getting too up in their faces (a couple of the bigger males were quite aggressive!) She just adores them, wants to feed and pat and cuddle them. If one of them started jumping, she was delirious with joy.
The reptile house would have to be her favourite spot, with the cotton top tamarin monkeys a close second (she cried when we walked away from them!) Unfortunately, the tiger was sleeping out the back somewhere so we missed out on seeing him, which was a pity as Evie loves the tiger (or "meow" as she terms all cats, big and small).
The highlight of the day was watching her talk to the echidnas and reach out to pat one - at which moment V and I both realised that yes, her arm was in fact small enough to fit through the bars, and we just about knocked ourselves out grabbing her in time. That would have been a major ouch, for Evie and the poor echidna!
We stopped off for coffee and gelato at the top of the mountain, before scooting home and bundling the kiddo into bed for a nap.
Hope the weekend has been good to you all!
