A visit to Australia Zoo

We headed to Australia Zoo today, on Easter Saturday.
Zac and Ella have been counting down the days for the last few weeks...they were very excited this morning. We got there at 9am to bright sunshine, then within 10 mins it was torrensial rain. Not very impressed with that. Anyway it cleared up and the sun came out making it very humid and steamy, then more rain. I swear we couldn't win!! It ended up a lovely day with 2 very tired kids on the way home.

We went with my SIL Tracey, BIL Barrie, Mel(my niece), My Mum and Dad and my nephew Michael. Lots of walking and heaps to see. I think my favourite was the elephants. Such big, beautiful and peaceful animals. All Ella wanted to see was a koala and the Crocs!! We even had our pic taken with a koala, for Ella's benefit. I'll scan and upload it tomorrow. It's a great pic!

Here's a few snaps...

A fabulous day was had by all!!

I wish everyone that reads my blog a very Happy Easter. Make sure you're in bed early so the bunny can leave you some eggs! :)

Chat soon,
Chelle Xx

Those pics are great, Chelle! Glad you had a good time even though it rained hard. The smile son the kid's faces says it all :-)

Have a lovely Easter Sunday.
