After not having visited Healesville Sanctuary in years, Mike and I were back again for the second time in a month. The draw card, spending time with our cutie niece and nephew.
I received a text message the night before from my sister-in-law, who'd told my niece 'we are going to see Mike and Lanie tomorrow and some of the animals we would see and she got all excited and said "that's perfect".' Love her!
With a two year old, the reality didn't quite match her anticipation and there were some frustrations, but it was great spending time with them regardless. (Not sure I'd be saying that if her parents weren't there and I was the one dealing with her two year old logic!)
My favourite part, snuggling with Mr Cutie as we wandered the Animals of the Night exhibit.
Mike's favourite part, visiting with a wombat up close in a Pat and Play session. The ranger was a little horrified when the wombat took a nip at my nephew's foot, but all toes were accounted for. No tears, no harm.
I think he got his own back though. (Ranger approved, couldn't stop laughing in fact.) Ride'm cowboy!
No wombats were harmed in the making of this blog post. ;)
