Following our three years in Iceland and our North American friends there, the children had grown accustomed to celebrating Halloween so were saddened to learn on moving back to Australia it wasn’t celebrated quite the same.
Hence once I heard Australia Zoo was celebrating Halloween, I took the children out of school for the day, bought us some bus tickets and off we went!
The day was nothing like we’d imagined (Young Sir IMMEDIATELY removed his costume on seeing we were one of the few families dressed for the occasion) but it was fun nevertheless. There is something rather unique about some of them there Australian animals.
Looking at this photo now, although this Mellow Fellow sleeping is rather cute, the fact the then Master Eight was lifting his sister up so she could touch a koala for the first time still brings a tear to my eye. He was, and still is, our Mr Considerate but just like Superman, chooses his moment carefully as to when and where he’ll share his superpowers, lol! 😉
