A jam packed inset day.

Last Monday my boys had an extra (inset) day off school at the end of the Easter Holidays and we decided to meet up with friends in London using Tesco clubcard vouchers for a fun day out.
First we caught the train (an adventure in itself if you ask a 6 year old!) up to Westminster for our speed boat ride down the Thames. So much fun, especially when the Bond 007 music was played and we sped up. Youngest claimed it was "epic" and whilst Rob enjoyed it he urged me to hold on tight more than once!!

After the Rib ride we grabbed lunch and jumped back on the tube for London Zoo where we spent a pleasant afternoon with NO crowds enjoying enjoying ourselves & learning plenty.  We saw the snake cage from the original Harry Potter movie, the Komodo dragon Raja from the latest Bond film Skyfall and an entire cage of "King Julians!" not to mention the "smile and wave boys" penguins from the film Madagasca. (obviously it helps if you have seen this film to appreciate the great amusement we had at this stage!)

When the zoo closed at half five we met up with hubby in Leicester square, enjoyed TGI ribs (yum!) and eventually made our way back home after over 12k of walking around on a rather nice day. PLenty of photos, now just to find the time between work and walking to scrap them!
