Before the animals, there was caffeine

We Masons have our priorities all right and proper.

First give us our caffeine. Then we’ll look at the animals.

We did spend a bit of time at the cafe, I have to say. It wasn’t that we were snubbing the animals though. It was more that we needed some time to lure Pete into that giant backpack you see in that last photo. Plus, yes, we Masons really do love our coffee.

As you can see, I was quite obsessed with the decor of the cafe. Who knew a zoo cafe could be so groovy? (Who knew that you can still use the word ‘groovy’ in the year 2011?)

Anyway, here’s a question for you to test your powers of observation: how many Mason boys can you spot in that last photo?

Answer shall be revealed in the next post. Who knows, if you get it right, there might even be a prize! (Or there might not be, you never know.)

Great photos!! The new Zoo entrance looks great now hey! We go to the zoo quite a lot … yay for friends of the zoo pass.. it’s so much fun and Max just LOVES seeing the animals!

My guess is 5 boys (2 slightly older ones!!)

Yeah, I know. The last time I went was when I was quite little, so I didn’t have much memory of the zoo but I’m sure it didn’t look like that!

5?? right away, i thought 4, but i’m going to stick with 5, so 5 it is!! your post made me laugh, haha! caffeine is most definitely a priority with us too! and don’t worry, i wouldn’t think that you’d be snubbing the animals ;) ;)
