Wow, where has the last 2 weeks gone? School holidays have kept us busy - thankfully the weather wasn't too cold. We had a fun first week - playing at the park and beach.
We also had a great day at the Zoo last week... having a FOTZ pass certainly makes a difference. We have been taking the kids regularly since Isabella was about 1 and it means they know exactly what they want to see each time we go, they never tire of going and it is a great day out in the fresh air!
We couldn't get over how the tiger cubs had grown since we'd last been, they certainly don't look like cubs any more, and Lucy spent half an hour telling me about the 'psst cats' after we'd moved away from their enclosure!We also managed a trip to Butterfly Creek where we played with the farm animals, bunnies, had a train ride and saw the new Crocodiles... they are HUGE! Oh, and the baby Alligators, which Bella and I had a little pat of... they felt like my shoes according to Bella!
Isabella managed to come down with Chicken Pox for the second week which dashed our plans of heading away... she has been miserable as her spots got infected which means she has been on antibiotics for the week - just coming right now in time for school! She is gutted that she lost a whole week of holidays!!
So week two involved making Isabella some new 'Barbie' pj's (as you have to wear pj's when you are sick, and when you are 5 they just have to be Barbie!)
... and baking biscuits...
... and lots of puzzles and books and drawing...
