Last week was March Break for Hannah and she had lots of fun with her friends at daycare. She was the only other child besides Ange’s 3 so they were able to do lots of neat things. Movie day, games, science class and a trip to the Toronto Zoo. I took the day off work and surprised Hannah by going with them.
As I was dropping her off at Ange’s I said, ‘I sure wish I was going to the zoo with you.’
Her quick response was, ‘Call your boss!’
I surprised her by saying, ‘I did!! And he said ‘yes’!’ She started jumping around and squealing with excitement! Love being able to surprise my sweet girl and that she enjoys the time we share together as much as I do.
We left early knowing that the zoo would be busy as the new baby pandas had just started greeting visitors a few days earlier. We arrived before opening and as soon as we were in the gates headed directly to the panda exhibit. We only had to wait about 30 mins. and they were worth every moment of the wait even though the babies were sleeping.
The babies are 5 months old and are named Jia Panpan (male) which means Canadian Hope and Jia Yueyue (female) which means Canadian Joy. They were absolutely adorable!!
Mom and the babies were inside while daddy was outside. I think I have a new favourite animal!!
I hadn’t been to the zoo since Hannah was a baby as she goes a few times a year with Ange. I loved seeing all the different animals!

It was such a treat to spend the day with Hannah, Ange and the boys.
