Life With My Toddler - 2 Years, 7 Months

Last week, we went to the zoo in Auckland. While walking there, I began to think about the times we had visited this place. Three times, if I remember correctly, when Maria was about 16 months, 26 months, and now, at 31 months. 1,064 more words

Rainbow Lorikeet

Open Lates is back at the Auckland Zoo.  We made it again this year.  This rainbow lorikeet is one of the most colorful birds that I’ve ever seen.  Very aptly named.
