A trip to the Zoo, celebrating birthdays and best friends

Last week we had a such a special day at Bristol Zoo with Aby and Baby. It was Baby’s third birthday on the Wednesday and on Thursday Aby made the drive from Berkshire and met us for our day out. It was so lovely that Rose was a part of Baby’s special birthday week of celebrations and that Aby drove all the way to come to us as she knows that I am nervous to drive long distances (that’s how lush she is!)

Even though Aby and I chat multiple times a day by message I miss seeing her in person so much. I was so excited the night before they were coming down I could barely sleep! I wish we lived closer so that we could see each other all the time, I’ve never had a friend like Aby she is so gorgeous and I love her like a sister. Over the years that we’ve been blogging I have watched Baby grow a little more each week and can hardly believe that she has now turned 3. We’ve only met with the girls once before but they hit it off immediately and chatted constantly just like their mamas.

Rose is particularly in awe of Baby who edges her in age by around 3 months, when I was going through the photos from our day out there are so many where Rose is just staring at Baby adoringly, so cute. The girls were twinning in their bright yellow jackets, which was totally coincidental believe it or not!

Now, usually when I go on a day out I’m with Mr T who gets a bit fed up if I faff about taking too many photos so it was amazing to follow the girls around with another blogger who didn’t mind stopping to set up shots and the girls were oblivious to us both snapping away as they played so intently.

Here come the pictures…Rose is wearing a dress from Joules, trainers are Clarks and her gorgeous bright yellow raincoat that you’ve all been asking me about on Instagram is Next.

First stop the carousel. Standard.

Time for lunch and Aby being super organised whipped out the party hats and paper plates. The girls loved the bits and pieces from the party bags and we tucked into a Baby's delicious chocolate birthday cake made by Aby!

I was trying to get a symmetrical picture of the girls leaning against a tree but Rose kept moving to sit next to Baby, so Baby being the total pro put herself in place to help me set up my photo, it was hilarious!

We found the most 'photogenic bench' for the girls to have photos on. Only a pair of bloggers would find that funny...

    Such lovely photos, and such lovely words, it is so special when you have that special friend. My best friend emigrated to Australia at the end of last year and I am so sad they have gone, not only was she my best friend but our children were all close in age so they had grown up together too. x #PointShoot x

    Awww those photos just made my heart melt. How lovely that through blogging you have struck up this lovely friendship and now your daughters are great friends too. I also love that they are wearing matching yellow coats, I know it was completely by accident but it really makes your photos look even more cute, especially the one where they are mirroring each other next to the tree. They look the bestest of friends :-) #pointshoot

    What beautiful shots, how lovely to be able to capture special memories like these. My boys are becoming little professionals at posing now too. I love that you picked the most photogenic bench to sit at!!!

    Love the fact they both had yellow coats on. As adults we would have seen that as a complete wardrobe failure if we had gone out in the same as our mate, yet these two pull it off with aplomb! The picture on the scooters is ace. Some lovely moments captured beautifully. #PointShoot
