HOORAY for holidays

(and fat beer guts)
 It was our first real family holiday and off we trooped to Nelson Bay, home to whales, koalas, dolphins but biggest claim to fame is shark capital of Australia (failed to mention that to Ivy )
At Oakdale farm you can feed the animals and don't they know it. They come running out of nowhere knock you over, tread over the toddlers and gobble up your last bit of food. 

 Poor poppy was traumatised and Ivy's rehabilitation with 4 legged creatures ( Dogs) has been set back years

 Poppy and and a koala had a scratch off... poppy won of course. we even had koalas living wild outside our apartment. everyone else saw them except us of course
 she then drove us to Fingal Bay.. made famous by Lara Bingle... say no more

we even did a dolphin cruise ... of course we had the crap day and only saw a couple. I swear when it comes to spotting wildlife I'm cursed

Ivy sitting on the toilet   "Daddy... how did you choose Kate?"
Daddy.... "well we met in London, got to know each other and after a while got married cause we loved each other"
Ivy" daddy I want to marry you!"
Daddy " well you can't marry me sweetie cause I'm married to Mummy"
Ivy" Daddy I'm gonna marry Dumbledore!"
Daddy "He's a bit old for you isn't he Ivy"
Ivy head in hands " I really need to find a boy"
Daddy " you have plenty of time darling, you don;t have to choose now"
Ivy " But I really want to tell you who I'll marry before you die"
