A first birthday adventure

Sailor turned one last week!

While he was happily oblivious to the fact that he turned one, we lapped it up by enjoying some cake and taking the children to a wildlife park near us which is one of those places which has kangaroos and emus wandering around posing for German tourists.

Highlights of the day involved watching Little Man trying to hug the neck of an emu, watching Little Man slip not once but twice in a concoction of mud and roo poo and walking stiffly away, watching Little Man try to catch a quoll and me pushing the pram for 1 km along a hilly bush track up and down log steps (while Ben was elsewhere enjoying a bush tucker tour!). Throughout a lot of this, Sailor was blissfully asleep.

The best part of the day was that the kids conked out early, and I now am a fully rejuvenated mother!

The photo of little man with the wallaby is gorgeous. I cannot believe he is touching that snake. I don't think I would like my children that close to one even in a wildlife sanctuary.

Sarah said...

Lovely to hear from you Therese! This snake wasn't venomous so I wasn't worried about that - as long as he knows not to touch them in the wild...

Vicky said...

The photos are lovely, Sarah! And, you must have gone there on the only dry day of the month!

Happy birthday to Sailor:)
