What a great weekend! We explored the delights of Dreamworld and spent the night with Grandma and Pop. Samara had 'the best birthday ever!'.

Here are my beautiful babes. Samara is wearing the new clothes I bought her for her birthday. Too cute!

Samara, Christopher and I rode the Rugrats themed roller coaster. It was their first ever coaster ride. I am working hard to bring them up as dare devils, in spite of their father's aversion to fast rides! Samara wasn't so sure, but she was pretty happy by the end. Christopher was right as rain :)

There was an area devoted to Australian native animals. The kangaroos were very popular.

Samara tends to be cautious about the unknown, and of the three children she was the last to summon up the courage to feed the farmyard animals. You can see she did love the goats. Joshua said they were his favourite too. I have to agree with them. Goats are the prettiest creatures, with all their colours and patterns. And the outgoing personality is hard to resist!

But the real drawcard at Dreamworld at the moment are the two tiger cubs. Only a few weeks old, they are gorgeous, fluffy kittens, though a scary kind of big! We saw older tigers as well, and Joshua turned to me and sighed 'I wish I was a zoo keeper!'. I wish I was a zoo keeper too, they get to pat tigers!!

What a lucky, lucky girl!!! It was so good to see a comment from you on my blog. I don't seem to get around like I used to and it seems that I hear that from others more and more. It's so good to "run into" each other now and then. Hugs to you.
