Okay so I know we all have oops moments every now and then. However I have to share a few today, none mine thank goodness. We went to the zoo, no my kids love the zoo. So today we actually did a behind the scenes tour and they lapped up every second. Didn’t even complain about being hungry for the whole two hours and they walked every step. That’s not the oops moment though. After the tour we walked around and checked out all the animals. Alright so this leads to the first one. At the reptile area there is a new enclosure. It is clearly signed with simple language. It states the enclosure is waiting for the arrival of some red bellied black snakes. Well some zoo keeper with a sense of humour has put two rubber snakes on the rocks. So there was this woman carefully lining up her camera, making sure everything is perfect and taking a fantastic picture of the rubber snake…. Seriously like you can’t tell its fake, especially as it sat there and didn’t move, must have taken her a good five minutes to take the picture too! Ooooooppppppps!

I promise all of our photos are real – the hippo thought the first oops moment was pretty funny!

Which leads me to the next Oooops moment. As we sat watching the hippos and enjoying an ice-cream in this hot day I could hear the radio of the volunteer nearby. The announcement was made that while someone was watching the sea lions they had hung their kid over the side in their harness. Well they slipped out of said harness and fell onto the rocks. Oooooooooopppppppps!! Now that’s pretty bad, I understand the reasons for kids in harnesses, don’t like them, but neither of my two were bolters. I get it, but really to think you can use it to dangle your kid over a zoo enclosure; well that takes someone pretty special!!!

So there you go two special oops moments. The best thing about going to the zoo is my kids love to write stories and do their scrap book pages after. These two beautiful animals will be getting a page about them this week as will the tour. The latest favourites are the sun bear and the otter! Until tomorrow have fun!
