  1. The Madagascar Walkthrough exhibit looks fantastic, sounds like a lovely time was had.

  2. Lemurs are great aren’t they. I love seeing how you’ve captured those thought provoking things you learnt that day. I love those special moments when that sort of thing happens. x #countrykids

      Thank you. I love lemurs – I hope that the work done by zoos can help drive home the importance of stopping the destruction of their habitat.
      Thanks for dropping by.

    A thought provoking post, children do indeed need the space, freedom and time to grow, they pick up so much more than the activity we intend on a day out and it’s great to step back and let them explore a little where you can. Thank you for sharing this different perspective on your day out at the wildlife park.

  4. Feels wonderful to be able to get back out outdoors and let the littles run around a bit. sounds like a good day

      Definitely – so great to be able to get out and about with out worrying about waterproofs and wellies!

    I LOVE this post. I am a massive fan of wildlife parks and think you can learn so much from seeing the animals play and frollick. Mummy animals always seem to give their children more freedom then we tend to. It is so easy to want to protect our kids from the big bad world. But they need freedom to find themselves and push their boundaries. As long as you are there to catch them if they fall. Hugs Mrs H xxxx

      I think it is because I am used to having to stay close to Freyja as she is much more nervous compared with Emily!
      Thanks for reading lovely x

  6. I’ll have to show this post to our 4 year old – he’s obsessed with lemurs at the moment! It sounds like you had such a lovely time!

    That looks like a great exhibit. I’ve been lucky enough to feed lemurs at our local zoo and they are lovely creatures. Can’t beat a good play area either! Popping over from Country Kids.

      They are gorgeous aren’t they – so lucky to have been able to have fed them though!
      Thanks for popping by.

    I love doing the walk through, the kids love being able to get up close to the animals. It is nice for them to have the freedom to run around places and explore.

    Lovely post! Freedom is most definitely important for everyone, allowing our kids freedom also helps them understand and grow into that special (mostly probably cheeky!) person they are! 🙂 xx
