Floriade with Dad

We were supposed to be cleaning out the garage today but the sun was out so we took advantage of the picturesque day.

Floriade Nightfest

It was a chilly 6.6C at Floriade tonight but the rain stopped so we could enjoy Ratatoullie. Jack was in awe of the open air cinema and we rugged up in blankies and drank hot chocolate.

Jack was as snug as a bug in a rug.

The urban family had dinner at the club on Friday night. Alex and Jack enjoyed swapping iPhones while we were waiting for dinner. They looked like little business men.

To Burra and Back

There is always some excitement to be found in Royalla and today we ventured off to Burra as well. Burra turned out to be even MORE exciting than Royalla because there were sausage sandwiches, toys and a park. Jack rode up the back of Pop's truck and it was a gorgeous day. I found a Mr potato head and a matching high chair and I spent less than $5 at the car boot sale.

We shared lunch with Molly and Aunty Rach. After Molly jumped in a huge puddle of mud there were gourmet sausage rolls and cupcakes followed by a sweet cup of tea.

Pop made my day by converting Jack's favourite movies, Toy Story and Babe into iPhone format so that I can have them in a scratch resistant (toddler proof) format.

When we go Jack makes sure that everyone lines up to wave goodbye after being smothered with kisses and love. 'WAVE TWO HANDS!' he yells, 'BYEE!' and before we get back to Canberra he is fast asleep.

I hope my mother is reading this....

I am just going to put in a small order for Christmas this year. All I want is a new nappy bag - but it has to be an ISOKI bag!

Tyson's Pirate Party

Tyson's mum knows how to throw an awesome party. There was a treasure hunt and a pass the parcel. Jack was super excited! Jack and I made some cupcakes although I forgot to take a photo of them on the tower.

When we got home Jack wrote his name with bath crayons. When we asked him what he wrote he said, 'J. A. C. K - Jack' so Stu wrote it underneath. There are clearly 4 characters and the last two are J and C. Pretty good for 2 and a HALF!

My boys

and my Nan.

Thanks Jules!

A fairy tale in Royalla

It was so beautiful to see my little sister get married yesterday. She looked stunning even after having a baby only 4 weeks ago. It was no small feat by my mum who organsied everything down to the little blue buckets of sugared almonds and Aunty Deliah who stood behind the scenes but didn't stop the whole time we were there. My brother gave the most awesome speech and Aunty Erin put all the babies to bed without a fuss. The father of the bride was just so proud.

I hope the new Mr & Mrs Kemmis realise how lucky they are to have found each other and to have the most wonderful family support around them. By the looks on their faces all day, I think they do.

Happy Father's Day

There is no breakfast in bed for the Dad who has to start work at 8 on Father's Day. But there was a TiVo and Stu was super excited about that!

After all, he is such a good role model for his son.

For the best birthday EVER!

Jen & Justine took me out to dinner last night and bought me my favourite and after such a good run of birthday awesomeness I thought I would like to thank everyone for the best birthday ever. I'm already counting down the days till 29.

My Little Soldier

I love the 'daddy daycare' stories that I come home to on Monday and Tuesday, when it is just the boys at home. Last Monday Stu tells me that Jack can sing the chorus to Ghetto Solider in the car.

I'm a ghetto soldier, deperado

I'm a ghetto solider, my sing ohhh

I'm a ghetto soldier, how wise and cold

I'm a ghetto soldier, my mind sing ohhh, Hey!

This has to be one of Stu's favourite CD's and he has been playing it in the car and at home since Jack was just a baby. I warned Stu that it wasn't really appropriate and there would come a time when he would have to censor. The day has come.
