Bryce's Birthday Extravaganza - at the Shoalhaven Zoo

Yesterday was Bryce's 5th birthday!

We started our day with a Skype call from Guthrie Public School. The kids (and teachers) in Liam and Bryce's classes wanted to say hi and wish Bryce a happy birthday. The perfect start!


We spent the entire day at the Shoalhaven Zoo (just 10 min away:) We had big plans...cuddle a koala, check out the wombats, feed some animals - Bryce loves his animals!

Too cute!


Cool Lizards!
