Tweddle Farm

Before I tell you all about our little trip across the North Sea to Amsterdam ( so many pictures to sort ) I'm going to tell you a little bit about what we did on Friday after we got back..... but then again you've probably guessed from the title..
About a twenty minute drive from our house is a farm called Tweddle Farm, now this farm isn't your ordinary farm with cows, sheep etc , although they do have cows and sheep , oh no this is more your exotic type of farm and I loved it.

There was a barn with babies in it - this little one is called Jo Jo..

The otters were so cute and squeaky.

A reptile house , this isn't my arm but I did stroke the snake .. very soft

There were quite a few monkeys including one called Josh who came to the bars when you called his name and the tiniest Tamarin's but all my photos of these are pretty rubbish.

You could buy bags of animal feed , and once the boys overcome their nerves they wanted to feed all the animals.

including this magnificent beast .

Diggers to ride on and slides to slide on.

By the end of the day we all felt a bit like this

Well I know I did anyway !! If you are ever in the area I recommend it , so many different types of birds and animals , I don't think I've showed you even half of what was there.

Oh, and if you fancy winning this awesome quilt, nip across to Kellies and enter her 100th post giveaway, but you'll have to be quick as entries close midnight ( Australian time ) September 2nd.

You guys have such fun family days!!! We had 3 pet emus & a kangaroo when I was a kid .... I loved them soooo much! The emus would come and lay their necks down my back so that I could cuddle them! Mind you one of them hated my mum for some reason and she couldn't go outside safely without a baseball bat!!!!! Give your boys a hug from us!

I can't believe I've never heard of Tweddle Farm before! It looks great! We're of to the Farne Islands today - the children have never been there so it should be fun!

That looks like enourmous fun. The zoo was one of the things on our lists to do over the holidays though guess what?? I don't think we're going to manage it now what with only a week left an all!!

Take a look at the sunday times article on this place , disgusting conditions behind the scenes , its amazing no one got very ill.

It always puzzled me how no one noticed the stench of death around the area's marked staff only
