Giraffe Birthday!!!

~Hiya all out there in Blog-Land!!!

~So the 1st and 2nd of July were both AMAZING days, yesterday I turned 27 and the 1st was my giraffe experience. I have take lots of pics of both so here they are:

~This is me in my wellies and the oh so gorgeous overall that was provided for me:

~Before meeting the Giraffes, I met some Zebra as they all live in the same section. This is me with Spot:
~After meeting the Zebra's, I got to meet the park's 2 giraffes, this is Wallace (who was my favourite):~And this is Zoey:
~After meeting and feeding the giraffes, we set about feeding them and the zebras. The following photo is me pulling branches into a fake tree, this is for the giraffes to eat:
~Here are Wallace and Zoey eating my branches:
~After my giraffe experience, the lovely keeper offered to drive us around the park and give us our own personal tour!! It was amazing, we got to drive right up to the animals in a 4x4. I've just included some pics of the rest of the animals but I did take LOTS!!! There will be lots of layouts of the safari park coming soon.
~Here are the rhino's:
~A Camel:
~A lioness on the giant climbing frame in their enclosure:
~I totally loved these little guys, the meerkat:
~There were about 5/6 penguins, and this was my favourite one:
~I got to feed the Llama at the petting zoo:
~Anyway we left the park when it started raining, after having a very good day - it was nice and hot, and we were tired but happy.
~Then yesterday I got up to this:
~And I got some gorgeous presents this year:
~And then this gorgeous lot turned up this morning, from the very lovely Lori (thanks hun), this is my new college bag and bits to go with it:
~I also got this birthday cake, a gorgeous tinkerbell one:
~We also went to the beach yesterday for a bit late morning, and had some lunch. I had a brilliant birthday this year - it was FAB!!! :D :D
~In other news, I have a new blog look - what do you think? You can steal one of my badges and display it on your blog if you like. I'll be back next week with some good news and my layout I did for Scrap Around The Clock Challenges. Thanks for stopping by.
