Wildlife Park

**Warning - this post has A LOT of pictures**

Hubs had a Saturday off.....that doesn't happen very often.
So we got up, got ready and went out for the day.  We decided to take the girls to the Wildlife Park in Ballarat.

This is by far the best Wildlife park we've ever been to.  The Kangaroo's roam free and are so tame.  They hop right up to you and are very friendly.  You are able to pet them for as long as you want.  








We saw lots of other animals really close up

 Wombat

 Tasmanian Devil

A Momma and her Joey

We got a couple of great snaps







After we finished at the Wildlife Park, we headed into downtown Ballarat to a Cafe Bakery for lunch.  

It's called Beechworth Bakery.  Coincidentally, after I took this pic I noticed that it opened exactly a yr after Hubs and I married ;)  



They had an amazing sweet selection and a cute little display of this guy rolling flour



The girls enjoyed their lunch

My gorgeous girl.  Always smiling :) 


Ofcourse I had to snap a semi-outfit photo in the restroom in Beechworth Cafe;


Lilah was pretty sleepy on the way home


Don't cha just want to smooch that face?.  How cute could this little girl be?!

My trip to the zoo seems so lame compared to yours! Great shots.

terra @ terratalking said...

You are absolutely SO brave to go near a live wild animal like that! Oh my gosh i am freaking out at the THOUGHT of petting a kangaroo! I think I have some issues with my irrational fear of wildlife. Anyways - lovely pictures! so fun to read around your blog and i love your design! #commenthour

Making all of us who live in the US (and other parts of the world) JEALOUS of the kangaroos!!! Such a fun place, such a beautiful family!!
