Alayna visits Wellington Zoo

Last week Alayna had a couple of days at home as she wasn’t really well enough for daycare. We both looked after her for a day and on my sick day we went to the zoo. This wasn’t perhaps the most obvious choice as it was a cold and wet winter’s day but I had Alayna wrapped up nice and warm with her raincoat keeping the rain at bay.

Alayna liked getting close to any animal that was nearby and was happy enough being pushed in the pram or being carried. We managed to avoid most of the rain and had the zoo nearly to ourselves. At lunchtime we had some hot chips for a snack and the woman who served us was more than happy to have someone to talk to, we were only her third customers of the day.

After a sleep and some proper lunch Alayna was well on the way to good health in the afternoon and we had some good fun at home. Alayna likes putting on hats and clothing when she’s in a good mood and here we have her enjoying putting on her sunglasses and then checking out her reflection in the mirrored finish of the oven.
