So today we spent our afternoon at the Billabong Sanctuary just a few miles away from where we live. It was a real Australian experience we held baby crocs, patted the Koala's, fed the Kangaroo's or as Ryder calls them "ROOS", and there was the hugest croc I have ever seen that they were feeding, his name just happened to be JAWS. We had to drag Ryder away he loved it so much! So here are a few pictures we thought we would share.

Aussie update

So I haven't really gotten into this whole blog thing....mainly because I haven't figured it out so I avoid it, but I am going to work on it a bit. We have had a few fun little excursions on Kyle's days off. Life is starting to pick up for us a bit, Kyle is bringing in lots of new patients and we are enjoying the tropical life. This week the weather has been crazy, windy and rainy and the waves at the beach are humongous. Some of the roads are flooded and one of our favorite swim spots is totally overflowing into the ocean. It is pretty amazing.

For those who don't know we are having a baby Mid-May and we just found out it is a little girl. We are so thrilled...I am excited that there are so many cute girl things to shop for, although this could pose a bit of a problem. We talk to Ryder about the baby all the time and he is so excited and even before we knew what she was he would talk about baby sister and being a big brother. I can't wait for him to have a little playmate.

So if you can believe it Ryder just keeps getting cuter.He is pretty animated and talkative....until anybody comes around and then he becomes a mute. My goal was to have him potty trained before the next baby came, so this last month we were really diligent about it, and without all that much grief Ryder is totally potty trained, it's heaven!! Ryder is pretty good at knowing all of his colors and even counting, he even walks around saying "1,2,3..time out mommy, daddy", apparently he gets it but thinks that we need to be disciplined too. We really can't get enough of him and we are so excited to add to our family.
