Well today we headed of to ZOODOO
Sam and I where a little hesitant, just another wildlife park we thought well I am happy to say its NOT! The staff make it much more than just another park!
We had so much fun here and the girls loved it, some memories made that will be talked about again and again for years to come.
First we visited with all the baby animals in the nursery, these are always my favourites, something about holding a soft little cuddly baby animal that just melts you instantly.
Then of course it was time to visit the out door animals. Emily made friends with a little boy called Edward. The sleepy sleepy koala was just beautiful, we all got to give him a nice pat and he snoozed right through it.
Then the fun began! The Safari! Out to see the Emus and Ostriches who where VERY eager for there first visitors, and feeding of the day. I haven't laughed that much for a very very long time, they came storming towards the bus and Sarah (Miss 14) started squealing, and laughing hysterically and squealing some more. There was no way she was feeding them, but the tour driver managed to get her feeding them with a bucket!
They where really quite full on, and the whole bus was just overcome with laughter every time another one popped their head in searching for another bag of goodies.
We got of to see some smaller farm animals and Sarah got surrounded by some ducks and geese, now Sarah has had a bit of a goose phobia since she was three and got pinched on the bum at the park one day!
My grown up Miss 14 was reduced to a little girl in seconds begging 'Mummy' and 'Daddy' to save her!
The camels and water buffalo where much quieter and definitely politer!
After all that excitement we thought a break for ice-cream was a must do before.....
The miniature horse racing! A mini-track and tiny Shetland ponies who ran a great race!
The girls couldn't miss the opportunity for a picture with this friendly Galah, well except for Sarah she had her fill of all things with feathers for the day!
We headed back into Richmond and went to a park for some lunch, we where surprised to discover we where lunching next to Australia's Oldest Bridge!
The girls and I then dropped Sam back at the unit and went to do some shopping, a girly girl afternoon!
