A little trip to Lake Mountain.

A little trip to Lorne. To see a special friend we haven’t seen for seven (can it be that long?!) years. A play on the beach. A drive up the hill and a walk down all those steps to see Erskine Falls. Looking impressive after all the rain we’ve had. A slow walk back up those steps. My poor legs. And some kid photography of a Ferrari who we let* overtake us, that famous house in Fairhaven and the Great Ocean Road sign.

*When driving down the Great Ocean Road, please be a courteous driver and move into the overtaking bays to let faster cars pass. You may receive a friendly “toot toot” in thanks.

We had eight out of eleven eggs hatch. They are growing quickly and eating lots. One is training to be a parrot for a pirate.

When Boy1 wants to make a pavlova, who am I to get in his way? Crispy on the outside, a little chewy in the middle…
It turned out just right.

That’s what big brothers are for!

Frosty grass, chunks of ice, frosty football, frosted raspberry… ice is so pretty and fun!

We woke up this morning to a really good frost… for here anyway. We get a few frosts each year but not usually so much that we actually get sheets of ice in puddles. We had loads of fun running around finding ice and getting cold. Although the Baby Girl doesn’t look so sure…

It’s such a dilemma, do I take the yellow or the pink?

For the last few weeks there has been a card craze going on here. A bit of Go Fish, some Spoons, a lot of Spit but the latest favourite is Phase 10. I like it.

The wind was rather strong yesterday… I looked out the window just as our trampoline went rolling across the paddock. It had been tied up, the rope was attached to one of the legs. The wind lifted it up, the leg fell off, the rope slipped off and away it went!
