things i'm loving & i'm grateful for 'our cute & fluffy family Easter'

Greetings all,
Combining this week's 'Things I'm Loving' with Paisley Jade & 'I'm Grateful For' with Maxabella Loves this week to bring you a long week double post of Australian family Easter cuteness.  I love it when my husband is around, we do so many fun family things. 

 Full marks for cuteness with this family.
 Ok so they sleep like 22/24 hours . . .
 but this koala was super active, climbing, jumping & stretching.
 Oh who doesn't love a great petting zoo??  Don't be fooled by the high schooler's facial expression, she is not loving her smile or photo being taken at the moment.  It's a faze.
 I really like goats, not sure why, everyone complains about them but surely if they are in proper fencing & entertained, they'll be great on the farm.
 This animal lover of course wanted to take them all home with us.
 Animals bring out the best in children, don't you think??
 Wallabies . . .
 a huge reason why i want a farm, space, animals & a simple family life in the country . . . it's based around the fact we'll have 4 teenagers very soon.  They can go & complain, cry & let out all their tension in their own space with the animals at the end of each day.
 These were very chilled wallabies & kangaroos.
 Best of all, we have handsome soldier with us.
 So wishing you all a great slide into Easter from my family to yours.
Relax & enjoy your long weekend!!  Love Posie

That last photo is hilarious. It's what I'm doing today. I agree that animals bring out the best in kids. x

I agree, animals are great for children to spend time with. They teach you a good sense of responsibility, along with many other things.
I just love that last photo!
Have a great Easter Posie :)

We have a petting zoo that visits us locally but nothing as exotic as your animals....however my younger children love spending time patting and feeding the animals.

I am so jealous of the photos of your children hand feeding these animals. As a southern girl, all we have are cows, horses, and other assorted livestock. How I long to visit Australia! Thanks for sharing the pictures!!
