Regular readers know that we are huge fans of Manor Park (Manor House Wildlife Park) and always make the most of our Double Bubble Passes.
Therefore, I have no idea how it took us so long to visit for the first time this year. Ceri very kindly gave the kids their Double Bubble’s as a Christmas Present and we had planned to meet up with our friends Emma, Adam and Leon soon after Christmas, but things kept cropping up and we had lots of stormy weather so our first visit had to wait until March.
Anyway, we made it! The girls had fun riding around on the bikes with the peacocks. At first, I thought the girls were chasing the peacocks, but it soon became clear that the peacocks were taking turns to chase the bikes too! Very playful. They do make me laugh when they get into the lemur walk through and display their feathers to the lemurs.
They are gorgeous and do love attention.
Cailtyn and Izzy walked up to look at the fish in the pond.
Adam and Leon had fun on the bikes too.
I think this is a typical “brothers” shot!
Suddenly it began to pour with rain so we headed for shelter in the playroom.
Izzy is soaked through!
Then we followed the boys to the hay barn for more sheltered fun.
There was lots of climbing, hay play and jumping going on!
Then the rain dried up and the sun came out, so off we went to play outdoors again. Poor Adam hurt his leg in the hay barn so they went to First Aid to check it out.
…especially when she can convince a big friend to come on with her!
Caitlyn and Rebecca were back on the bikes.
So we cycled around to see the meerkats, lemurs and farm animals.
Danny and Cerys then arrived with Nanny.
The girls played swing ball. I need to set ours up again in the garden.
They played in the park, on the climbing frame and slide.
These girls raced to the see- saw!
I love the willow enclosures. This one was Caitlyn’s “house”, so here she is cooking for me.
Near the end of the day we decided to warm up with hot chocolate. This was not one of my best…or cheapest ideas! It soon added up buying everyone a hot choc! We should have stuck to our usual flask.
However it was lovely!
Back outside and it’s time to dance!
Lastly, we visited the wallabies.
They weren’t very hungry though so we had to throw the food rather than feed them, which is always a lovely experience.
We then met Aunty Ceri in Pembroke. Here, we got chips for tea (cheaper than all the hot chocolates!) and drove to a local viewing spot to eat them.
The kids played on the cannon and I took their photo for this months Siblings portrait.
Then it was time for hugs and home! Looking forward to our next visit to Manor Park and lots more outdoor picnic teas!
(Poor Adam had ended up at A and E with a torn ligament, so he hope his leg is better soon! 🙂 xxx)
