Zoo-day Sunday

We finally got around to taking our little monkey to the zoo!

We arrived nice and early - with all of the other families of young children and set out in the brisk, sunny day to find 'Alex', 'Marty' and 'Baloo'.  (brush up on your animated films folks!)

Well we only found 'Marty', but we found all other sorts of wildlife to watch and discover.  We have mixed feelings about zoos to be honest, but learning about the animals and their natural habitats and what we can do to help take care of them is part of the education I guess.

It was actually a bit overwhelming for her at the beginning but she certainly enjoyed searching out what the next animal would be along our path and watching them with wonder and curiosity.

We have a three year old in the house.  Three years have gone by already??

We celebrated the little monkey's third birthday this weekend!  Unlike the first two birthdays she was well aware what a birthday party was, and presents, and all that went along with the whole celebration.

Admittedly I likely went overboard again but it's what I do, and seeing her have such fun and watching the joy in her face makes it totally worth it.  Even if I'm still recovering from it all!

Happy birthday darling girl. xo

A Weekend with a View

Not sure I'll ever be able to post in a timely fashion again....  but here we are none the less!

We enjoyed a lovely long weekend up in the Blue Mountains for the Mother's Day weekend. We stayed at the Fairmont Blue Mountains Resort, and this place is perfect for families and the kiddos.  Olivia had a ball!

Train rides, a carousel, pony rides, indoor playgrounds, automated doors that opened to "open sesame" (or so she thinks..) what more could a girl ask for??  Or the parents for that matter, we didn't have to travel far to keep her or ourselves amused!

I'm ready to go back.  Do I need to wait until next Mother's Day??
