Quick Post...some photos...

We spent the day last Sunday with John's oldest son Brad, his wife Briohny and their boys (John's grandsons) Blake & Dylan...Blake is 9 and Dylan 8. They were holidaying on the Gold Coast and as we don't see them nearly enough it was a great chance to catch up.

We went to the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, the day was glorious, the sun not too hot to be out in and a gentle breeze was blowing. The Sanctuary was great, I hadn't been there in 30 years so it was wonderful to see the positive changes that had been made.

Here's a few quick pics of the kids...

From L-R...Matilda, Myles, Blake & Dylan. Seconds after that photo was taken the koala pooed in Matilda's hands...she was grossed out but relaxed a little when the koala carers told her it was all eucalyptus leaves, nothing else. Myles is Blake & Dylan's uncle, the similarities he and Dylan share are uncanny. Blake is fair and blue eyed like his Mum.



Myles with baby croc...just as well it was firmly taped shut, they are quite snappy even at this size. We saw a number of larger crocs while we were there. Nothing like getting a close up look to remind you that humans are not at the top of the food chain...
Unfortunately our day was way too short...it was so hard for them to fit everything in that they wanted to do. They will be in Queensland in March for a wedding so we hope they will come and spend some time with us then.

Better get a move on...it's cheerleading night and I need to get dinner organised before I go.

I have another post brewing on the outrageousness of surgeon's fees...not happy...!!!

Matilda is your twin! And the boys are cute, too.

Goodness, I don't think I would want a handful of any kind of poop.

Poor Matilda...uggggg....my daughter would have FREAKED. She had a green tree frog wee on her at school the other day & she was NOT IMPRESSED!!!!

Looks like you all had a great time...I think I went there as a young girl!? (I have a vague memory...)

Looking forward to hearing your news about surgeon's fees. I don't think I'll be surprised....

Hi Kerrie. Thanks for your lovely comment today. I'll just snoop around here for a while if that's okay? I assume you have wine? ;o)

So does the poop smell like eucalyptus? My boys would have alternated between ewwwww and oh cool.

I did play along with the tagging, but I didn't tag anyone. Just don't have that many bloggy friends (poor me)
