We had a great day at the park on the weekend. Just a few friends, it was a really windy day so it was a perfect day for flying kite..
We didn’t have any kites when we went to the park, we weren’t even thinking about flying kites. But it just so happened that a wonderful Auntie & Uncle S gave the children a kite for their Christmas present. I was going to make them put it under the tree, but they decided to open them there and then. Lucky they did really or we wouldn’t have been able to fly those kites..
Kites are so much fun, even the big people

The little Man was invited to a circus birthday party for one of his friends from preschool. He had the best time, they had lots of equipment from the circus that the children were allowed to play on.
Little Man really loves anything to do with the circus, Nana & Pop have taken him to the circus a couple of times and he loves it, so when he found out about the party he was so excited.
One of his favourites was spinning the plate on the stick, he was getting good at it by the end of the party. He could hold it up really high, he didn’t quite get the

Yesterday we were invited by some friends to join them at Carols in the Park. We don’t like to do late nights with the children as we pay for it the next day, but why not it is Christmas.
It was a lovely evening, we had lots of fun singing along to the carols, the children had fun running around. I am glad that we did go as it was a good night with good friends and the children enjoyed themselves. (Yes we did pay for it today)
We really enjoyed our last camping trip with Nana and Grandad so we decided it was time to do it again. This time Nana & Grandad had a caravan and we purchased ourselves a new tent, which is a Mansion with 3 bedrooms and a vestibule area (I love that word).
We went away for 10 days and it was great fun again. We didn’t however have the great weather that we did with the last trip. We managed to get stuck in a really bad storm, the awning on the caravan blew up and broke the leg (which we managed to fix) and the tent vestibule blew up in the

Had a great day on the weekend at the Art Gallery with Uncle C and Auntie B.
Auntie B is always finding out about these great art exhibits that are hiding around this city. This one was especially good as it was for the kids, though I don’t know who had more fun the kids or the adults.
As you first walked in the door there was a exhibition of airplanes and flying things that children had made from recycled paper and bits that people had thrown away, at the bottom was another pile of recycled bits so that you could have a go and making something yourself. Which of course the

We had a lovely week with Nana and Grandad, the children love going to stay with them and I hope they love having us. I am sure that they do, but sure that they are glad to have their house back to normal when we go.
One day we decided that we would go fishing, we went to Narooma and walked along the board walk, stopping for a spot of fishing.

Nana & Grandad bought Little Miss and Man a black board so they had it to play with when we came to stay at their house.
Well they both loved it especially the Little Man. As Daddy was away in the US he decided that he would do some drawings for Daddy and I had to take a picture of them and email them to him so he could see.
Here are a few of the pictures the little Man drew for Daddy.

While staying with Nana & Grandad we got to go to the park a few times. Here are a few pictures of us having loads of fun at the park.
This was just before we had fish and chips on the wharf by the water, was a beautiful day.
This was on a different day, this park had lots of stuff to play on. This was definitely a good find.
Nana proves that you are never too old to play at the park.
Little Miss was a little unsure about this swing, Grandad was pushing them and her face got that scared look on it and she called out to

We had a lovely weekend away in Cowra at the Cherry Blossom festival at the Japanese Gardens. The Gardens were really pretty especially the cherry blossoms.
I have been lucky enough to enjoy the cherry blossom festival in Japan, so it was nice to see a Japanese garden with all the blossoms in full bloom. Takes me back.
The children enjoyed the day, they had lots of other activities and things to look at on your way around the gardens. They had Sumo wrestling and karate which the little man enjoyed watching, but it all got too much and they both got really tired so it was time to move on, so

The little man loves playing with the playdoh, he loves to make different shapes and food and all sorts.
The other day we were playing away with the playdoh and the little man says “look mummy, I have made an echidna” I was blown away when I came to have a look at what he had made.
Wow what a great echidna, it is fantastic, so good we had to keep it.
What do you think? remember I had nothing to do with it, he did it all himself.
This was then the little miss’ attempt at the echidna, pretty good too.
