Hello everyone!

 

Since Planckendael Zoo is a zoo and not a real theme park, I'm posting this TR in the Random-section...

 

We (me, my mom and dad) went to this zoo with my little niece and nephew, gotta keep the kids busy during the summer holiday.

The kids really love animals (we live on the country side so they're used to see cows, sheep, chickens,...) but now it was time for the real stuff!

 

We had a great day at the park: not too crowded, not too hot (actually a bit cold) and lots of animals had babies so that was really cute to see!

The kids also had lots of fun in the playgrounds that are spreaded all over the park. Speaking of which: after a few hours, the kids were more interested in the playgrounds than in the animals... Ah well, I guess that's just the way kids are!

 

Anyhoo, onto the pics! Enjoy!

Time to say goodbye! Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed!

Speed-stroller (I know it's hard to tell but my dad is going full speed and the kids just love that!)

Ah, some nice themeing near the exit...

Liam seems surprised that he can jump so high!

We ended our tour at the biggest playground and there it was time for trampoline fun!

Another manipulated species: the glowing pelican!

The suspension bridges were very cool and the kids loved playing "earthquake!" :)

Liam is not so keen on the giraffes...

1988158275_planckendael052.jpg.f2a876e789a6f6289da159ff1c88e58f.jpg

Ah, a healthy giraffe!

But he looks a bit bummed, he just moved in here from Barcelona or something... I think he's homesick!

Beware: wave goodbye when you're speeding towards a crocodile!

Lunch time! (no need to say that the kids chose this area to eat)

I have no idea what kind of animal this is, but it's a nice family portrait :)

In the parking lot we were greeted by Misses Stork.

Planckendeal has lots of storks and since they're not locked up, the kids were chasing them the whole day :)
