The first week of the holidays I have had my mum and a good friends daughter visiting . These two are the best of friends, even though they haven't lived near each other since they were two. Back then the big Bowerbird was very fond of asserting herself by biting her golden locked buddy, leaving serious tooth marks. She obviously made an impression as the friendship has lasted. So pleased she grew out of her T Rex ways, all kisses, cuddles and giggles these days.
Hilarious to see these big girls balancing on little buckets.
Unfortunately the BF had to be returned home so we organised a rendezvous half way point at the Melbourne Museum. It was a beautiful day so we spent quite a bit of the day in the outdoor areas of the museum.
We didn't go to see the new Mesopotamia Exhibit but the middle Bowerbird had fun creating his own Mesopotamian village.
Playing with mirrors in the children's section, wish I'd taken a picture with all the kids, was a great effect.
The highlight of the day for me was seeing my blog's namesake. Mr Bowerbird has built and furbished the most divine bower in the museum's rainforest. I was rapt to actually get to see him inside the bower, he seems quite unworried by visitors and has gathered up quite a collection of blue treasures.
