The start of the year has been hectic to say the least. I have calluses in my hand from cleaning up the house after coming back from the holidays. Plus, the deadlines are back (yay and nay because school doesn’t start for another week!).
But lining up some kiddie activities before we left was a great idea as it gave my little one something to look forward to, instead of just “assisting” me with chores.
First off was the Wildlife Park Sydney visit to see the latest addition to their family – the Tasmanian devils. I love these little creatures, they are cute but can also chew through bone! Awesome. Unfortunately, they are saying that in 25 years or less, these little animals could be extinct in the wild because of a contagious cancer.
The zoo has a breeding program for these little cuties and I’m hoping that on our next visit, they will come out to say hi (they found a way to bury underground away from the viewing window while we were there).
Even so, Mini K had a blast looking at the other animals during the show and meeting Finn and Jake from Adventure Time. They’ll be appearing daily at the zoo from 13 – 19 January between 10am-1pm. I’ve watched that show – it has something for the kids and the adults – such a bizarre but entertaining concept. (And there was a giant duck toy at Darling Harbour too, a real WTF moment).
The next day, Mini K went to Mickey’s Rockin Road Show with me and our friends for an afternoon of fun. Although she still had a bit of cough, she was very much into the show – standing up, dancing around, bouncing around. They loved every bit of it. I especially loved the Tigger dance when they threw giant balls to the crowd. It was a great party for the kids. The show will be touring Sydney until the 13th of January. To get tickets, go to their Disney Live website.
I promise to post more soon. I’ve written many pages of blog entries. Just been so knackered, as usual. Hope you all had a good start to your year!
