Linkup Party Likes!!! #4

Wow what a busy week it has been, with the Easter and Labour Day public holidays, hubby took the 3 work days in between off.

We had a great time camping and 4wd over Easter and on Thursday we took our girl's to Australia Zoo for the first time.

I didn't realise how big the place was and after walking around all day and being 32 weeks pregnant my legs were really sore.  But it was worth it to see all the beautiful animals.

The girl's got to feed an elephant which they thougth was really exciting:

The Wildlife Warrior's show was fantastic, with lots of beautiful bird's, snakes and crocodiles to name a few:

yes this man is swimming with a snake, crazy!!

the bird's where just stunning

so glad we didn't encounter one of these guy's on
our Cape trip last year!!!

So if you haven't taken your the family, I highly recommend it.  And over this weekend we celebrated the girl's Great Nana's 90th:

just love this little lady!!!!
So what to do on the last day of hubby's holidays, rearrange the garage to become a toy room/sewing room so that we can put the nursery back together for bub number 3.  It's really strange seeing the cot and change table back in the room.  Can't wait till bub is here as I am going to custom make new bedding etc when we find out if it's a girl or a boy!!!!

Once again I haven't been able to get round to any tutorials but please hang in their I promise I will soon.  I managed to checkout all the linkups while having a cuppa and boy has everyone else been busy:

Janelle at Of Pinks and Fairy Tales has a great tutorial on how to change a sarong into a summer dress.  I just happened to have picked on up at a charity shop last year that I will have to use for one of my girl's:

 I also like Janelle's tutorial on how to make a Satin and Tulle flower :

I'm just loving this Welcome to the Jungle nappy bag by Bethany at Sweet Bee Buzzings:

So please checkout all these wonderful blogs and have fun coming up with your own ideas.  I'm off to hit the old sewing machine.

Have a great day!!!!
