Can you get bored of looking at Meerkats?

Tom's mum was kind enough to give us a annual family zoo pass for our Christmas present (amongst lots of other thoughtful gifts I was quite overwhelmed). This is such a fantastic gift for our family as it means we can attend at our leisure and not feel forced to look around the whole place in one day to make it worth our money. Tom took the day off work and we caught our little inner city train from our neighbourhood to the station ten minutes walk from the zoo. We had a little stroll around, saw a few of the animals and left within the hour to go for lunch and charity shopping before home in time for Wilf's midday nap, perfect! I know a couple of my friends got the same gift so I'm really looking forward to spending some more time up there, especially in the summer when I can let him loose on the grounds and actually feel like we've done sometimes different with our day. I wonder if you can ever get bored of looking at Meerkats? 
I knew Tom had gotten today off but he surprised me this afternoon with telling me he actually has the Monday off too so we are really looking forward to a long weekend with daddy, hurray!. I know it's only just been the Christmas break but sometimes that start back at work, the dark days and the cold British weather do make you feel a little glum. I've been a bit of a hermit of late so it's nice to have a mini break again. 
I hope you all have fantastic weekends and thanks ever so much for all your comments on this post, I was blown away with your kindness. What a lovely bunch you all are xx

What an awesome present. I love Bristol Zoo. Those baby meerkats are seriously loud!

(P.S. I received my etsy stuff-thank you :) )

The Zoo pass is one of the best presents a family in Bristol can receive! We have had years of fun trips with our kids...and the best thing is that you can just pop in for an hour of so - rather than feeling like you have to stay all day to justify paying full price entry every time. We love the meerkats too! x
