My littlest baby turned four last week.
Four. I don't know where the time has gone. I am so proud of this little princess, she is an absolute joy and delight to be around. She makes me laugh all the time and she loves to have a good time. I actually have to admit that she has a better sense of humour than me and often unwittingly reminds me to laugh and have a good time just by breaking into her little giggle and finding the funny side of something ordinary.
While I was looking for birthday ideas, I came across a great discount coupon to Featherdale Wildlife Park on Scoopon. Little Miss decided that she would very much like to visit Featherdale to see, pat and feed some kangaroos, koalas and other native animals, so it was decided and off we went. Being just 40 minutes outside of Sydney, it was perfect for a day trip.
We had a lovely day out and I was really impressed with how big it was, how many animals there were, and how many interactions the children actually got to have with the animals. Most of the animals that were free to wander around the park were very happy to be patted and fed by the children, although some of them were looking quite full thanks to the many little hands with a seemingly endless supply of food for them.
The boys favourite was 'The Ghost Bat Cave', whereas the girls liked the farm animals the best. (I think the baby farm animals were my favourite too - who doesn't love baby farm animals?)
The biggest surprise of the day was how much Olly enjoyed it. I have to admit I am not a huge animal person, so I got most of my enjoyment from watching how much fun the kids were having, but as for Olly - he enjoyed it just as much as all the children and informed me that he needed his very own "Featherdale" right in his own backyard.
