Featherdale Wildlife Farm

This week, Pops Howard and Meme took Zachary and I to Featherdale Wildlife Farm! I wanted Zachary to see all the Aussie animals up close and he was able to feed the wallabies, pat a koala called Checkers who was the exact same age as Zachary!, hold a python, pat a grey kangaroo, listened to a kookaburra laugh (and then some!) and learn all about how echidnas eat ants and termites and baby penguins that live on Phillip Island. We learnt a lot and were very impressed with the beautiful array of Australian animals and birds. A super fun day indeed!
This sweet baby koala was so sweet, sleeping in the tree nook! He was tiny!

Babies Proms with Auntie Gladys!

Last Wednesday, auntie Gladys, Zachary and I caught the ferry to Circular Quay and walked over to the Opera House to watch the Babies Proms: The Little Drummer Boy. It was so cute to watch all the little ones play along on their mini drums. We loved spending time with our beautiful Tia Gladys! Besos xo

Manly Beach

Yesterday, dad and Ceci took Zachary and I to Manly Beach. It was a beautiful day. Zachary enjoyed watching the primary/ elementary school kids take surfing lessons, while mummy enjoyed watching fellow mummy's watch one another's kids while each mum took turns going surfing! Nothing like seeing a mum push a stroller while carrying her surf board in the other arm! Fun day :-)

Valley Heights Steam Train and Santa

Pops Howard took Meme, auntie Gladys, Zachary and I to beautiful Valley Heights in the Blue Mountains. They have this amazing steam train display that you can explore plus an actual ride in a steam train! So much fun! I think that the best part for the kids was being able to see Santa :-)

Michelle's bridal dress fitting and High Tea at the QVB!

My sweet "baby" cousin Michelle is getting married to the wonderful software engineer, Oscar. Chloe and I have been asked to be part of her 5 bridesmaids and so this past weekend, we went with Shelly's mum, my auntie Charo, to look at stunning wedding dresses. She looked gorgeous in them and I will admit that I may have shed a tear :-)

Then I took their girls out to High Tea at the QVB (Queen Victoria Building). So much fun in a day!

The dress shop wouldn't allow us to take pictures of Shelly in her different dresses :-(
