Summer Fun

Some water fun that we got up to in the summer school holidays! The local playground has some water features and on a particular hot day we decided to visit the playground to cool off. We tried the park (see last photo's) but the water on the grass was very smelly and so decided to go to the playground instead. I LOVE the free things in life, they are the best :)!

Michaela with the water gun, it was very hard to aim (maybe that is a good thing!)

The big smelly puddle at the park

Despite the smell, the girls still had a good time splashing through the puddles, isn't that what life is all about? (We as adults forget that sometimes in our busy lives!)

We're going on a bear hunt...

Have you read or watched We're going on a bearhunt by Michael Rosen? If not you are missing out! An awesome story and he tells it soo well. Anyway after watching the clip quite a few times, the girls decided especially Michaela that they needed to go on a bear hunt in the back yard. A sprinkler was set up as one of the obstacles, togs on, cap on, goggles on!

Notice the finger on Michaela's mouth.

They're not scared!!

Natalia Maria-Anna

A new girl cousin!!

Late January, early Febuary we waited with anticipation of the birth of our new baby girl cousin!

As soon as we got word that little Natalia had arrived, we arranged to go over and meet this new miracle. The girls were super excited and Michaela and Grace decided that in order to meet this new girl cousin, they needed to dress up like ladies. So all the Sunday clothes came out including hats. I queried Michael re the hats, and she told me that ladies wear hats and so they were going to wear one to see Natalia! Following are some photos of each of the girls with their new cousin!
