Birthday Photos

Thanks so much for all your comments, emails and IMs with birthday wishes, reading them was lovely! We jetted all over Wellington yesterday, Presents and Wellington Zoo in the morning, the movies in the afternoon (at the Gold Lounge - think armchairs and a full menu to order from!) dinner at Cobb and Co in Upper Hutt in the evening (My fav resturant since I was a kid) and a wonderful cake to top it all off!

I thought I'd share some of my favourite photos from the day - I can't take credit for most of these (except the cake one I messed up lol) Shanan took almost all of them. I'm spending this rather chilly evening at my stamp desk, should have something new to show you tomorrow!

Female Gibbon, only the males are black - didn't know that!

I loved the Malaysian Sun bear, he had these intense unblinking eyes, and just look at those claws!

Have you ever seen a grumpier face?!

The Baboons were so hard to photograph, they were so far away behind lots of wire. Thank goodness for digital zoom!
I love anything cute and cuddly, this Lemur certainly fits the bill!
mmmmm, hay.
Looks just like my cats when they're asleep!
I loved the Red Pandas. I got a gorgeous soft toy from the gift shop. They have such vivid coats. This was the only one that was sitting still, obviously the elder of the bunch.
Meerkats are my favourite stop at any Zoo or Wildlife park. This guy was the lookout and was so intensely focused on his job!The gorgeous cake from Tempt. All my photos of the cake are this bad, I don't think the gold dust liked my camera flash much!


  1. Great photos the one of the sun bear. That tempt cake looked mighty fine.

  2. I'm glad you had such a nice birthday - it really does sound like a lovely day. The photos are fantastic! That bear is amazing!

  3. Those are awesome zoo photos ... shouldn't there be one of you though? And that tempt cake ... looks so gooooooood. :o)

  4. Looks fun it's great to be a "child" at times - can i ask what kind of camera do you have - you do take awesome shots

  5. Belated Birthday Wishes!! Great pics! Glad you had a nice day for your birthday.

  6. Happy Birthday and the photos are great...awesome photographer by the way and love the it was delicious

  7. OMGosh! that cake looks so very very mouth watering. That would last you all week you say? You are clearly sooooo much better with temptation than I am! LOL

  8. OMGosh! I love that giraffe! How adorable! I've never seen a red panda (well, I don't think I've ever seen most of those animals in real life - our zoo has deer, monkeys and a very sad looking lion). Looks like a fun day!

  9. My fave is definately the Meer Cats. I'm glad you got one to sit still, I couldnt get any good photo's when we went to the zoo.

  10. Happy belated *Birthday*!!!
    My daughter Miriam and I think your photo's are awesome - I/we miss the Zoo!!! Sounds like you had a fabulous day?!?
