This week my boyfriend and I decided that it had been way too long since either of us had last set foot in a zoo. Since the one in Antwerp is the biggest zoo in Belgium, we left by train on Tuesday morning. We took Lonesome George, our turtle plushie, so he could go on a family visit. We had a fantastic day but I'll just let the pictures to speak for themselves.

Smile and wave, boys.

He's staring into your soul.

Joshua cares about George's safety

Best name ever

I like ice cream

Joshua does too... I think


Meerkat babies

Cutest. Furry little bastards. EVAR.

What do you want?

Sometimes I get these urges...

More meerkats. I might be addicted.
