Picnic Day ...

Had a wonderful day with most of my family the other week; I am sure my grand son and my grand daughter enjoyed themselves - they certainly looked like they did ..... lol

Cuddle time
There were such a lot of emus and kangaroos wandering around - a couple invited themselves for lunch ..

My grandson had a go throwing a boomerang and then got to hold a snake ...

Abi loved the kangaroos and wanted to rub her face on them all the time; she was such a good girl all day; never wanted to go into her stroller, she walked everywhere!!!

I am getting Nathan again after his birthday (Oct) and he and his mum are coming over for lunch or dinner one day in the school holidays to check out Cali and Mr Spot.

I am so pleased that I arranged the day - I really loved it.  Mind you younger son drove as there was enough room in their car for Nathan and me but I still had to leave the house!!

So our (Nathan and I) next outing is probably going to be to Mini Golf - Nathan likes playing golf on his Wii - I am guessing younger son and family will come too.  Will is a golfer and I can just imagine how Abi 'play' golf.
Nathan moving a lunch guest on ....

Not sure what animal Abi loved the best - she certainly gave plenty of cuddles to the kangaroos and the lovely Alpine dingo.

Checking out the desserts ....
Nathan spent some time getting rid of our unwanted dinner guests - it is a bit annoying to try and bite into a roll when you have an emu trying to do the same thing at the same time or a kangaroo trying to sort through all the goodies to see what tastes best!

Picnic Day Coming Up .....

Looking forward to next Sunday - spending the day with my handsome eldest grandson!

We are off to the Australia Walkabout Wildlife Park at Calga.  Really excited about going.  My son and his family are coming also so we will have a lovely picnic day; hopefully the weather is kind to us and we have lots of fun.  Hopefully I get lots of pictures of my family and all the animals.

I am trying to see him at least once a month now that I am getting better and able to leave the house.

Watched a couple of his recent soccer games and that was so good to be able to a) get out of the house and b) be able to see him.

Still an effort to leave the house but as long as I plan it carefully I feel like I have control and can do it.  I am sure people would laugh - I pour over Google maps and plan every step of the way; then I work on alternative routes in case I either get lost or there is a problem.

Mind you that doesn't always work - I had to pick up on of my new cats from Willoughby - I planned every step of the way; was physically sick before I left, got there and picked up the cat but somehow I turned left instead of right.  I panicked big time ..... ended up ringing a friend, hysterical.  He got me to take a few deep breaths and tell him the names of streets and shops where I was.

Turned out I was only one street away from where I needed to be and he got me back on the right road. it was awful because I couldn't think straight and didn't even have the sense to open a street directory!

Honestly I cannot believe how this fear of leaving the house has affected me!!!

Three years ago I would have thought nothing of driving all over the state now I cringe when I have to go to the supermarket three streets away!!
