We Went To The Zoo and FNWF!

 Yesterday, I took Austin and Nelson to the zoo (Mitchell wouldn't get out of bed!). We went to see the new baby elephant. He is so cute. You may just be able to make him out between his mother's legs (yes, that little dark spot).
We went into the Platypus House and 
saw all this splashing.
The platypus was jumping out of the water and biting the leaves hanging down. He would hang for a second or two and then fall down. It was a bit hard to get a good photo. You can't use a flash and he was very quick. In all the years I have been going to the zoo, I have never seen this happen. It was quite fascinating.
Today is Friday, 1st February. That means it's Friday Night With Friends! Yeah! Head over the Cheryll's to sign up. Now to decide what to work on. Either some more secret sewing or piecing the back for my chicken quilt or both!

PS. If you haven't been getting comments from me, I'm not ignoring you. I'm having problems leaving them. Some blogs I can leave a comment no problems (pop up windows). The others if I'm not quick enough to click the "Leave a comment" the comment box disappears and I can't leave anything. Has anyone else had this problem?

I really should get organised and take the kids to the zoo. Lily has never been and I would probably have trouble getting Aiden out of bed also! Teenagers! I sometimes have problems leaving comments when I am on the Ipad. hugs

Love the zoo. I certainly have never seen that much activity in the platypus house. Lucky you.
Yes, I have had issues with commenting, mostly those with the function below the post.
See you for sewing tonight.

We love our zoo too; I said to Ken just last week it is about time we went there again. Last time we went to see the baby tigers - darling little kitties!
Don't get me started with blog issues...IF I can get on to a blog, I can leave comments, but it is getting there in the first place that is my problem! Thanks for leaving your comment so I could find you!

I love platypus, you are so lucky to have been there when this one was jumping, I've never seen or heard anything like that before either. Have you been to the Platypusarium in Tasmania? All about Platypus and the Tassie ones aren't nocturnal so it's not all dark and night-like and they are doing their thing in normal light, I could spend hours just watching them.
