Love those shells though!

Auckland Zoo || Part 1 {The Pridelands}

Amazing how I've only had my full [driver's license] for a couple months, it feels like forever; I can't imagine life without it! Several weeks after I got it, my friend Anne Roos and I made use of it and headed over to Auckland Zoo together. Since I took nearly 150 photos {146 to be exact ;)} I'm going to spread the good ones between a few posts! :)

: : Love giraffes! : :

: : Same pic, but landscape, which do you prefer? : :


: : Zebras . . . : :



: : Sorry about the quality, this is a small piece from the top of an image that didn't really turn out otherwise : :

: : Aww : :

Eltham Trip {Day 4 ~ Saturday}

Saturday started early -- about 4:30am for me!! Jarrod and I went with Uncle Mike to his 4 Square to help with the baking and such that has to be done before the shop even opens. Several hours later the family arrived to get Jarrod (they couldn't get everything into the trailer without him apparently . . . ) and Danielle joined us at the shop. We all met at Uncle Mike and Aunty Sonia's for lunch before hitting the road. We had a pretty good trip, stopping for dinner in Te Kuiti and arriving home around 8pm.

: : Laura with everything before it gets loaded up! : :

: : The queen of faces! : :
