The Murrumbateman Field day was another great day. William had his first dogem car ride but the petting area was their favourite. Another great day for getting the community together. It's a great place that we live in.
We had the most quiet and lovely weekend. The boys wore shorts and T's and Grandpa took Jack to his first game of cricket. Tori ended up going for a swim after a run at the dog park and Uncle James made the most delicious roast pork. We are very lucky people.

The spring holiday comes to an end and most of the things are checked off the 'to do' list. The boys enjoyed plenty of time at home playing together which usually involved some dress up and role play. We made cakes and enjoyed afternoon teas, movies, bike rides and milkshakes. We even managed a trip to Bemboka and Sydney. But most exciting of all we booked our flights to Tassie for New Years!
We were lucky to meet baby Lolly who is the spitting image of her father and too cute in her pink turtle neck!

William's favourite colour is yellow. For a while he was pointing at anything and asking, 'Is this wellow Mum?' But he gets it now and insists on having everything yellow. Yellow cup, yellow bowl, yellow ice cream. He spots yellow things and asks me to, 'take picture, look yellow!'
I am cherishing every moment of their cuteness these holidays, in between bursts of spring cleaning of course. It's a good thing I have these little dinosaurs to help.
Thanks to Tania McCartney for the Muzy and Instagram tips.

We have a picnic lunch and a walk around the lake with Ellen & Amelia.
We invite you over for dinner and tell you to bring nothing at all.
The house is spotless and the washing is done.
The car is vaccumed and serviced.
There are freshly baked biscuits cooling on the bench.
The boys have Mister Maker paintings to show off and Mum gets out the Nikon.
Happy Spring Holiday

We dined on N2 ice cream for afternoon tea and it was amazing to see the ice cream being formed as the nitrogen was poured into the milk mixture.
The aquarium has been completely renovated since we last visited and they no longer take teachers for free which was disappointing. There goes my only perk! It was also busier than ever since the public holiday crowd was there and we chose a peak time to visit.
Dinner was HissHou which put on an entertaining and delicious dinner for all. Jack could not believe that the chef was throwing food around the table!
A short tram ride and we were up to our 5 star bed.
It was the perfect weather for a trip into the zoo. The boys loved the ferry and it was an easier ride on the Captain Cook boat rather than the big, old Sydney Ferries that we usually take. Jack and William were both amazed to take the unexpected gondola ride up to the zoo entrance.
We all just about fell asleep on the ferry ride home but Jack perked up when we were ready to hop on the monorail. The monorail is due to be taken down in July next year so this might be their first and last ride but it was very exciting for them all the same.
So we visited Star City and happened to stumble across the Adriano Zumbo Patisserie. Amazingly we were able to bring a cake home without too much damage and these two little ones were shared for a delectable afternoon treat. The pink cake was my favourite with layers and layers of different textures and flavours.
