One day last week Daddy and Katie went out to do a spot of gardening. Could not resist this shot. Why she had the Santa hat on who knows! And looks like there was a stone in that boot. Shake it!
Another day we took the kids to the local indoor pool. This is a wave pool and also has water spouts and fountains that rotate. Loads of fun.
A couple of days we hosted a LAN party for Call of Duty. One of the founders of the clan Den is in was over from Perth (a city on the otherside of the country) and it was good for them to finally meet face to face. Hughie was in heaven especially when presented with a clan cap! He can't join until 14 years of age, but joins in whenever short and everyone knows him by his code name "Ratchet" (aka Transformers!)
We took a trip down to a Melbourne bayside suburb but the whole day turned into a disappointing fiasco. The funniest thing was probably watching Katie trying to walk along the pier. Oh the stress of it as one photo shows. She has a great fear of falling through the cracks! These photos pretty much tell the story. The boys took off and I was trying to take photos but the whining and taking it one board at a time was taking forever! I had to call in reinforcements and Daddy once again came to the rescue.
The strangest thing that happened was when we sat down for lunch. Everyone was hungry but could find nothing suitable for me (coeliac) so finally I just told them to get something and we went and sat in the park. Two dogs came bounding up and knocked over Katie and then ate the food that we had placed in the middle of us!!!!!!!!!!! I yelled at the dog and the owner as I waved it away from Katie, but the woman just turned and casually said " well it is a leash free park"!!!!!!!!!! So what!!!!!!! Does that give the dogs the right to knock kids over and eat peoples food. MAN! I was so angry. We packed up and came home.
