Cotswold Wildlife Park

For Father's Day this year, N and I and the boys drove very far away to Cotswold Wildlife Park. Zoos are such a hit for our family. Always something interesting to see, usually on gorgeous grounds. Cotswold was brilliant, we had good weather, the boys were quite well behaved. It was a good day.

I felt a bit weird about Father's Day this year. Up until a few days beforehand, I hadn't heard from my dad. It was about a 3 month period of silence from his part. These sort of things always affect my mood, and now that I've heard from him, and he seems well, I can be OK too.

Going to the zoo last weekend though, really made me itchy to start planning our summer. I love day-tripping with my kids, and there always seems to be something interesting going on, especially now that Joshua is at an age where things are easier to manage.

What're you most excited to do this summer?


  1. Oohh I love zoos! I really like the ones where you can pet the animals as well. Looka like you guys had a blast!!

  2. Zoo's are one of the best places to go.I love looking at the animals and find these places really peaceful

  3. I love that running picture.

    We don't have a traditional zoo anywhere near us. We have a petting farm, a drive through park thing with bears and wolves and other things that live in this area, and a reptile place.

    For this summer, camping.

  4. Aww, that goat is so cute! :O

  5. Glad you heard from your dad AND had a good time at the park. I bet the boys will remember those trips forever!

  6. Looks like you guys had a lovely time!

    I'm most excited about going to Ireland next week :-)
