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!

  1. Outstanding!! Love the pics...Happy belated, Bryce! Enjoy every single flies by way too quickly!

  2. You bet Paulyne! You and Todd are our life coaches for OZ - once in a lifetime indeed. This place is heaps good and we've only had a stickyboo around Jervis Bay so far:)

  3. Happy Birthday Bryce! Logan was so excited to see him on Skype!

  4. Birthday celebration at a zoo is wonderful. I am also looking for an enjoyable theme for my daughter's birthday next month. Will book one of the high rated event space NYC and I think they offer discounted deals as well. Cake and dinner arrangements will be done from a reputed place.
