Ari turned seven last week....
He had an appointment at The Royal Children's Hospital
that morning & as a birthday treat we visited the Zoo after.
Ari has a heart condition and has regularly check ups at RCH.
The new hospital opened last year (it's next to the old site) and it's
pretty amazing... there's an aquarium, a meerkat enclosure, a wall-
sized interactive game screen, a beanbag cinema, a fantastic land-
scaped courtyard, huge sculptural works (even a robot butterfly),
not to mention fantastic new wards, foyers and operating theatres.
You can take a virtual tour here.
But a trip to the Zoo was still atop of Ari's birthday wish list.
