'All At Sea!'

It's Saturday & that usually means we are at Gentleshaw feeding (ok playing & snuggling) with the animals! Nige started a new job this week & he has to work some Saturdays, but thankfully no Sundays. So we will still be going tomorrow. We did nip in yesterday, as Jen (the boss) posted some fabulous news on Facebook.....Kevin...yes Kevin the marmoset had, had a baby (squeal) so cute couldn't wait to see it. But then the news got even better Kevin had, had twins (squeal lots) Nige did manage to get a few pictures I will post them after the boss has seen them, but oh they are adorable. About inch & half long with scrunched up faces, real cute!

I managed to snag one that Nige put on Facebook for you to see, proud mom & dad with one of the babies! So sweet! Can't wait to see them again tomorrow xx
