Featherdale

On Friday my friend Alina and I went to Featherdale Wildlife Park.
It was a stinking hot and very windy day. The poor animals were feeling the 38 degree heat just as much as we were.
We had a great day walking around Featherdale looking at all the animals.
When we went into the kids farmyard animal section a inquisitive goat came over to greet us. This totally freaked me out, he looked like he wanted to eat my pram! I bought Jake a little ice-cream cone full of food but as the goat came over poor little Jake freaked out and threw it all on the floor. =D

Featherdale is a great place to take young children but over the hotter month I definitely recommend going early in the morning.

Here are the photos I took.

I got to pat this cute Koala. Jake wasn’t keen on patting him though.

The kids were so cute holding hands and looking after each other without us even asking them to.Image

Tulip Time Fun in Bowral

On the weekend we went to Bowral and checked out the Tulip Time Garden and played with our new camera (Canon 650D).

We decided to have a play around with our 55-250MM Lens with a Hoya Polarizing Filter. Here are some photos we took; the first 3 are mine and my awesome man took the last one.

The tulips were beautiful. Next year hopefully we will get to check out the tulip garden earlier. It was so nice to walk around the garden with our little family and see all the other families enjoying the sun shine. It was such a beautiful day in the Southern Highlands.

A touch of Tea

We came across A touch of Tea on our way home from shopping at Bowral Woolies. My gorgeous man pointed it out and I not so patiently waited until Saturday to check it out.

Inside the walls were lined with everything anyone would need to have the perfect cup of tea. There were beautiful tea pots, mesh balls and tea cups everywhere. Teas of all flavours were on display in cute little sealed glass sample pots. It was nice to see what the leaves looked and smelt like before buying them.

There were so many teas to choose from. We ended up buying a Chocolate Chai, Earl Grey Green Tea and a small bag of Cold & Flu Allergy Aid. The whole time we were walking around the shop the shop keeper was watching us and our reactions to the different teas. At first I thought it was because we had Jumping Jake with us but we were surprised at the end to receive 2 free tea samples (Marco Polo & Ginger Green Tea) perfectly matched to our tastes.

If you love tea and find yourself in Bowral visiting A touch if Tea is a must 🙂

Berrima Playground

On the weekend my family, and I went to check out the awesome playground in Berrima after my friend Candy (from Candy’s Family) recommended it.
We were not disappointed.

The park in Berrima was designed to blend into the historic buildings of Berrima. It has an awesome adventure castle complete with a spiral slide and fireman’s pole.

I love swings so when I saw this amazing nest swing I was like a kid in a Candy shop. I stood in line so that I the kids could have a go. Jake was a massive fan but Charlie wasn’t 100% keen.

Another impressive feature of the playground is the flying fox. 25m of pure fun.

We can’t wait to go back. I can see many weekends spent picnicking at this playground.
