One of the things I love about the UK is the vast array of fauna and flora. Being where we were we were able to make the most of seeing many of Gods wonderful creatures from the ponies in the fields next to our garden, some of which Alana had the opportunity to ride, to the cows and sheep a little further afield.
Even Isaiah got to have a little sit on Rene
Another day Alana got to ride Cobweb
At its centre Worcester has a swan sanctuary on the river Severn, so we took a number of opportunities to go and feed them and just watch their elegance even when they are on mass all fighting over the same piece of bread.
For Alana and Isaiah is was exciting just discovering some of Gods smaller creatures in the garden from the ants, to the caterpillars, woodlice, earwigs, frogs, newts and dragon flies.

Visiting different events around the country we also got to see various birds of prey and flying displays, snakes, lizards, scorpions, ferrets, rabbits, guinea pigs, dogs of all shapes and sizes and even a few alpacas and llamas. On a visit to my brother we were also able to meet some baby hedgehogs and hold them, though they were a little prickly!
We took a visit to a Sealife centre, only the touch screens were far more interesting than the actual real fish in the tank next door
We did at least get excited about a real crab we found on the beach
