Happiness is...

The weather is letting us down a bit here in Perth. We had planned to do the Zoo today, but since we had our breakfast in pouring rain (don't worry, we were watching the rain from the inside of a cosy café) we decided on plan B, which was more or less, just winging it! :)

Guess where?

We did some of the boring grocery shopping, got Nathan an early birthday present and then set out on a bigger mission - to get to 'Toys R'us'. We had in a week moment promised the kids they could use some of their saved up allowances today, if they were good.
This mission involved a longer ride on a bus and what seemed like an endless walk along a highly trafficked road, until we gave up; asked for directions and had to take another bus! But we made it.

Quite a while later, with two now a lot happier kids, we set off back to town. By now it was already time for dinner and we decided on another favourite - mussels! Mmm! My mussels were a bit on the small side, but they tasted good. And so did the man-sized beer Nathan had apparently.
Happiness is:

We are hoping for some steadier weather tomorrow so we can get to this Zoo! Would be nice to see some Australian wildlife. The kids don't seem to remember their visit to the Zoo in Sydney 3 1/2 years ago, so I'm hoping we get to pat some kangaroos and koalas here too!
