Us girls took the kids to the Taronga Zoo one day. It was on our list because we are zoo people and we were not going to miss a chance to take our kids to an Aussie zoo to see all the Australian wildlife.
The Taronga Zoo is beautiful. We walked from the flat to Circular Quay to catch the ferry. It drops you right off at the bottom of the Zoo. The Zoo is on a hill, so we took the bus to the top of the Zoo and made our way down the hill. No reason to push the stroller uphill the whole day.
The kids were a bit crazy. Funniest part of the day was when William picked up a pile of kangaroo poop in the free range kangaroo exhibit. Luckily it did not get all over him. Boys, boys boys.

|My Sun bear and she is my sunshine every day.|
|These are Wandering Whistling Ducks and they make the cutest noises. They whistle and not quack. It was adorable!|
|Made it to the top!|
|Wild Cockatoo flying around the zoo. My favorite thing of the day.|
|The giraffe's have the best view. They are lucky.|
|Cousin picture on animal statues. It's a tradition that is stretching through generations. I love it!|
|These two critters. I love them both so much.|
|Not the best picture, but Henry was so excited to see the reptiles. He loved seeing the snakes move around their enclosures and was in boy heaven. We saw a Basilisk lizard which made me really happy because it is an animal from a Wild Kratts episode. My kids are obsessed with that show. It is the only thing they will watch. I really like seeing animals from the show in real life. The kids get really excited because they know a lot about it from Wild Kratts. The Kratt Brothers, another thing stretching over generations.|
|Searching for Koala Balloon. It's a Wild Kratts thing.|
|We got to see all three Koalas awake and moving around. It was awesome.|
|Girls picture! I had the best time with Brooke at the Zoo. I'm so happy that this trip happened and we got to spend time together.|
|I was happy to see the Gorillas. We do not have them at the Singapore Zoo, so it was a treat. And we got to see two baby Gorillas! Double the cuteness.|
It was a successful zoo day because Henry fell asleep on a stranger on the bus. Thank goodness it was a nice stranger and she did not mind and was so so so nice about it. So grateful for people like that. Actually both people sitting on either side of the four big kids in the back of the bus were so nice. I really appreciate people who are nice about kids. All you city parents will understand. The bus driver was so chill too. We got off at the last stop and were the last ones on the bus because I had Raphael and a sleeping Henry I had to carry off. The bus driver didn't make me swipe my oyster card. So chill. Tender mercies everywhere.
