kids in doodles #19: jared’s birthday

kids in doodles, kids

today’s kids in doodles edition is extra special {at least for me :)} as i will be hosting it in behalf of mummy willa, kuya kendrick + kuya patrick. they are a bit busy at the moment due to their impending move back to the philippines {check out their post here} + since this meme is one of my most favorite, mum gladly volunteered to host it for the time being, then after a few weeks, it will be mummy che‘s turn to host it {she’s getting her baby blog ready ;)}

kids in doodles, kids, birthday, Zoobic Safari

so, today i will share with you my 2nd birthday celebration, when we visited zoobic safari {somewhere up north}. we saw a lot of trees + some mountains on our way there, mum + dad said it will take a 3-hour drive by car to get to zoobic safari. i plan to stay up while travelling so i can see more of the surrounding, but i was off for my nap time an hour away from our destination.

when we got there, we immediately fell in line to get in + joined this group of guests + a tour guide to see what this place has to offer. we first went to the serpentarium, which housed the reptiles including turtles, snakes, big lizards + iguanas. i saw this big yellow snake. mum + i had our photos taken beside it, of course all of these animals are caged so they won’t go out + bite anyone 😉

i saw a lot of other animals that day, including a white tiger {which is the only one of its kind found in the zoo}, yellow tigers + lions, too, donkeys, ostriches + wild boars. we also road this car + went to feed some tigers. of course, someone has to accompany us so he can feed the tigers so we can see them upclose + personal.

we even get to see some animals perform. a wild boar, named dora, painted a picture using colored pens, a little dog danced tinikling +  some dogs + some animals indigenous to our country showed their tricks, too.

there was even a group of teenage aetas who performed their traditional dance for us, they showed some funny steps, imitating how a monkey moves.

there were also a lot of birds living in the aviary in zoobic safari, but we only managed to see a few, some horn bills + some owls, too. we never get to explore the rest of the aviary because it started to drizzle when we got there, + mum just couldn’t risk me getting wet so we explored the souvenir shops instead. dad bought me this cute white lion stuff toy.

it was a very enjoyable afternoon + we had loads of fun celebrating my 2nd birthday. i hope we can go back there when i am a bit older + have our photos taken with the baby tiger.

so what is your kids-in-doodle share for the week? share it with us, grab the badges from the smart boys + don’t forget to include it in the linky. have a great week ahead, everyone! 😉

my new toy from Zoobic Safari

toys, kids

am sharing with you my new toy which mum + dad bought for me on my birthday when we went to zoobic safari. this symbolizes the white tiger that resides in there. the real one is so big + looks kind + scary at the same time, but aslan {got the name from narnia, i just love the lion there} is simply the coolest + very huggable. i hug him a lot + play with him, too. we chat sometimes, as well, to pass the time {of course none of our chats are understood by mum ;)}. elmo + my brown tiger toy have found another friend. we just love playing with each other 🙂

this is my toy stories share for the week, what’s yours?

birthday doodles

look at my doodles

for mum’s birthday we went to this restaurant in the city. it was very cool since, apart from serving the best pumpkin soup i’ve ever tasted {it was the first time i tried it, too :)} they are also giving pieces of paper and crayons for children to doodle on while we wait for our meals to be served. here is what i did on my paper {mostly with mum + dad’s help, of course}

mum + jared doodle

i had fun scribbling on my sheet of paper + mum + dad enjoyed it too. see mum helping me with a doodle of her own in this photo? dad also wrote some stuff, he even planned to write “happy birthday” on my paper, but did not get around to it since he got busy looking after the little guy who wants to run around the resto while mum eats…:)

i think i am well on my way to online high school with doodles this good! then on to college! mum and dad better find out how to apply for student loans.

my kids-in-doodles tale for the week, what is yours?
