Owls are our favourite!

Yesterday Ethan and I went to Puxton Park (near Weston-Super-Mare).  We used to have membership, but it lapsed so I renewed it.  I'm so glad I did.  We're very lucky to have one of these adventure/theme farm parks nearby. Yes, they are a bit of a nightmare during the school holidays, but the rest of the time, especially in winter, they are a God send.

I wanted a fun, stylish and practical outfit for our day trip, so came up with this:

Owl belt - appropriate!
Trusty Clarks flats..
I'm afraid it's not a great photo, I was pushed for time so only managed a pic in the mirror on my phone, and it isn't great quality.  I was pretty happy with this.  Nice and bright.  The real statement is my Stella & Dot necklace though, I was so pleased with how it stood out against my t-shirt.

Stripy tee - Primark
Cardi - H&M
Belt - eBay
Jeans - F&F @ Tesco
Shoes - Clarks
Necklace - Stella & Dot

We had a fantastic time at Puxton.  The highlight of the day was the twilight experience with the owls.  Ethan said he wanted to have a go at "holding" an owl.  In the end, he got to have 4 on his arm.  He didn't flinch and held them up all by himself.  We were both buzzing afterwards!  The staff members were very impressed, he was the smallest child there and out of all of them appeared the most calm!  It might be due to his age perhaps, but I was very proud...  So, I have to show off a few pics of my little man and his owl friends!

Woolly the owl "The big one!"

George the owl.

I know.. fuzzy pic.. not great, but at least you can see my necklace!

For shame.. I cannot remember this gorgeous fellow's name :(
