Darwin & Emma’s birthday (part 2)

We found Darwin (makes Geelong look big!) and found the Darwin equivalent of Chadstone as google said they had a beauty shop that did ear piercing’s. Emma was so bubbly and excited on the way in but not rude over the top as can happen.

Picking ear rings was fun, but some trepidation appeared

Then in the room the reality started to set in, but Emma held her course

Then in a second, she had two holes! There were no tears and a brave face. How mature now she is 7

Emma requested KFC for lunch but had sushi rolls anyway. Matt was happy as we acquired 4 blue tongue lizards..

Then off to Crocosaurus Park in the centre of Darwin. While hot, everyone had a ball, we saw crocs, fished for crocs, saw lizard, snakes, frogs and turtles

Feeding/fishing for crocs was great, kids fascinated and scared. Only my kids could pat a croc

Maccas for the kids was dinner at Emma’s request, with Clare falling asleep keeping up with the big kids.

Emma chose a mudcake and a strawberry cheesecake slash sponge cake.

Vicky, Kate whipped these up in the van oven…….

Emma said the best bit today was getting her ears pierced after waiting a year!

Happy birthday again Em
