Staglands NZ '07

The following pictures were taken at Staglands wildlife reserve. You walk amongst the animals and can pat them and pick them up and in some cases ride them, as you will see...

Glasses on and ready to go.

Noah and two other cool guys.

Just enough time for some golf/ball type game.


Before going in we had a picnic with some peacocks.

Noah and Louis needed to do some running around before going into the reserve.



Just outside the park was a construction site which in itself was good enough for Noah and Louis.

After all the fun times it was actually time to go into Staglands.

Then he saw some donkeys.

Angie and one of the donkeys.

Looking into the belly of the beast, well the mouth at least.


There was a bit of walking between the areas in the park and walking in the right way was important.

A cute guy.

Louis and a rabbit.

Ben and Annabel.

We reached the bottom of the valley where there were pony rides, unfortunately there was a large family all waiting to have a turn before Noah got to be a "cowboy".

He finally got to have a turn and he loved it.





Noah the cowboy in action.


After having his turn he wanted to help Louis have a turn.

Hanging out with the animals seemed to have an enwilding effect on Louis.


Everyone again, notice Noah has shed his pants.

The perfect way to end a busy day.
