Santa Safari

Last week we went on a Santa Safari at the West Midlands Safari Park.  Considering it is less than 10 miles from where we live this is only the second time Liam and Freya have been and neither can remember going before.  Kids under 4 are free and the last time we went was the weekend before Liam's 4th Birthday which meant Freya was 2 1/2.  They were both really excited and loved our Santa Safari family day out.  Here are a few photos of our day:

We travelled on Santa's sleigh to get to his grotto:

New this winter are the penguins:

Then we got back in the car and went 'on safari':

Obviously there are some animals that you can't hand feed, such as this gorgeous white tiger:

Some animals just popped their heads in the car much to Liam and Freya's delight:

It was too wet under foot for the giraffes to come out but you could see them outside their huts:

Even though they were not in the park I did managed to smuggle one of them home:

Then we saw the sealion show:

Off home we went via a lovely pub for our evening meal as I didn't want to spoil the fun and cook.

How funny. I've just printed off a couple of photos from a WMS day out to scrap! I'm just catching up on blog posts - how behind am I?
The passport arrived too late, so we didn't managed Lapland after all. We were invited to the Santa hunt at the Black Country Museum but were then let down.
We went to the Bonded Wharehouse in the end and I'm not too bothered we missed the boat trip - having done it twice and it was raining the day we went. I think Siobhan was just happy for me to take 3 days off work and spend time with her.
