Australia has some beautiful zoos! I love being able to get up close and watch these animals. With my kids learning a lot recently about living things and studying animals, I decided it was time to take them on a fun excursion to Taronga Western Plains Zoo.

It was time to make my daughter's birthday cake for her 7th birthday.  Every year my kids talk about their birthday cakes for months,  scrolling through Pinterest and looking through the cake book for the best one they can find. Some of the cakes are incredible and I'm having to become more and more creative each year to fulfill my kid's wishes.
