Matalan Zoo Day Event

It was exciting heading off to the Zoo, we love family days out but they are even more fun when the boys are kitted out in nice new clothes courtesy of the fabulous people at Matalan.  All set and ready to go, looking smart and feeling confident thanks to what they are wearing.

We were looking forward to meeting up with some dear blogging friends (the girls behind the blogs This is Life and especially)  and exploring around the zoo.  The weather was beautiful we were very lucky!  It was pleasant to see the sun showing its face again as I thought we were in for a long cold spell already!   Even the elephants were having a cooling shower to get away from the heat...

We had lots of entertainment at the Zoo; the clothes proved hard wearing as the boys wrestled, climbed, ran around and tested it to extremes on the climbing ropes and frames.  Matalan clothes obviously can withstand what my little explorers put it through and at a surprisingly affordable price.

I would recommend a visit to the Zoo, the mind-bogglingly big bugs exhibition went down well. Last year we made the most of the dinosaurs there but this time the bugs had the boys entranced!  They were all very brave when faced with the giant bugs.  Happy to pose for a picture whilst a super sized Mexican Redknee Tarantula (over 30 feet wide!) was in the background!!!

At one point a keeper kindly let them help release moths, which I thought was a nice touch and a highlight for them.

My boys liked spending so much time with H.  They miss him as he lives far away from them, but we will try and visit soon.

We had a wonderful day, thank you Matalan.
