West Midlands Safari Park

It was my mother's birthday today. Despite her many protests over going on a 'mystery outing' I eventually persuaded her to get in the car. Around ninety minutes later we arrived at the West Midlands Safari Park.

It was an awesome day out. My Mum's been following the progress of the white lion cubs since their birth, so coming face to face with them was a fantastic experience.

Happy birthday, mum! Xx
