Tim and I had a classic afternoon at the zoo with icecream at the end. The past year we've been going to the zoo, I totally forgot about the ice-cream! That used to be the cherry on top of the end of the zoo trip when my parents took my brothers and I when we were little.
Plus it was the same price as a coffee, and I got to choose two scoops so I got bannana and chocolate. It tasted like those kookaburra Billabong icecream poles and it totally made me feel like a happy kid again.
Speaking of kookaburras, the last time we went to the zoo a couple of weeks ago, it was near closing time and we were rushing past the back end of the zoo and nearly walked past this fellow sitting on a low sign.

It was so great and cool seeing one of these birds close up (and not in a cage), it was only 1 meter away! They're really quite large and funny looking.
