Great excitement started the day today my baby turned 15. We made her wait until today to give her a portable DVD player yes we made her wait until we had already driven 3361.02KM I have always be against my kids having DVD players in the car I prefer mine look out the window and see a bit of this beautiful country that we live in. Lucy survived. She also got some vouchers from Grandma, Grandpa and Nanny. We were going to visit the Alice Springs Desert Park it’s a fantastic park I put it equal with Australia Zoo. You can go on walks through Woodland Habitat, Desert Rivers and sand country. There is so much to see even in winter, all the lovely plants and the spectacular wildlife. Someone once said to me they thought the desert landscape was boring, you have got to be joking.
This photo was taken in 2007 but I forgot to take a photo of the entrance so I'm using this one, look at the gorgeous blue sky.
I hope to name these birds correctly I had to buy a bird book called Birds of the Red Centre by Malcolm Arnold. This little guy above is a Rainbow Bee Eater
I don't know either of these but the bird below sings the most beautiful song, I will have to go and find my other bird book.
Black Winged Stilt
A cute little fairy wren, sorry I'm to lazy to find out the name of the others.
Mum and bub a big bub at that.
After spending hours at the park we had to go and pick up Lucy’s birthday cake. I was fortunate to have a friend that lived in Alice Springs and his wife was able to tell me the best place for cake was Cakes for You. Just lovely was so pleased with this cake and it tasted delicious .
This photo just doesn't do this cake justice. We went out to dinner to celebrate Lucy’s birthday I hope she had a good day.
