Zoo day

On Saturday, “Baby Bob” Irwin turned 9 years old. And judging by the crowds of people who were at Australia Zoo on the gorgeous sun-filled day, he had a very happy birthday!
We were there, the three cherubs and I, sunscreened to the max and with full water bottles weighing us down. It was a beautiful day!
I had hoped to follow our family favourite – the 10am otter feeding – with the 10.30 Feed the Elephants session… but I had not realised that they’d moved the Elephant feed to outside their enclosure, all the way on the other side of the zoo. Oops! Oh well. Tea cup rides and time on the Jumping Castle soothed Miss 4’s extreme disappointment, and time in the sandpit near the dinosaur ‘cave’ was in order, prior to feeding the baby farm animals and then the midday Croc show. It being Robert’s birthday, he came and fed a croc, as did Bindi; and Terri tried getting a uncooperative Mossman (the Zoe’s largest Salt-Water Croc) to eat a feral pig. We sat up the back, and got a good view of the birds, with a lizard for company next to Miss 7.
Then it was kangaroo feeding time, pony ride time, and elephant feeding time…

    Sounds like a fabulous day! I am certainly looking forward to the holidays and spending some time with my kids. Two weeks to go. Sharon

    • Yay – two weeks, and you’d all be counting down the days, I’m sure! It’s great to hear from you, Sharon – and thank you for visiting my humble blog! (I’d like to think I’ve come a long way since INN333, but then again… LOL)

    “the *zoo’s* largest Salt-Water Croc”? πŸ˜› Sorry, I couldn’t resist.
    I can’t believe Bob is 9!!!! That makes me feel so old 😦

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
