This week brings some happy memories of our special school holiday outing with cousins to Zoo Doo. Above the oldest and youngest Tassie cousins both have striped beanies.
Nate's favourites were the bunnies and the lambs.
It was also great fun to race around the paddocks with the wallabies.
Bill held his own, kicking animals that came near his feet!
All the children did a great job on the crazy bus ride with camels and ostrich sticking their heads through to eat the food in the cups. No one got too scared!
That is just a sample of the exciting day which also held lions, merkats (my favourite), monkeys, and emus. We have been reading about ostrich in the lead up to our South Africa trip so this was a good opportunity to talk about and observe the differences between them and the Australian emu. Hopefully the lessons will be remembered!
Plus some more things to be thankful for:

Mercy's response to being told we would have guests on Sunday: "great, I love them, what are their names?"
