iPlay, Let's Play, Bunnings DIY

It's been a very wet and cold week in Canberra so we've spent more time inside than usual. We cleaned out all the baby toys and found some toys the boys had forgotten about. William really enjoyed the sorting but he wanted to keep everything. 

We broke up the week with Bowling, iPlay and Let's Play. 

We spent some time with Tommy while Nanna groomed Tori. 

Tori loved having her hair cut. 

In between high winds and storms we caught a few breaks and found some Geo-cache treasures. 

The boys did a Bunnings DIY workshop which was fantastic fun. They both made spice rack along with 50 other children. 

After an iPhone auto-correct error we went to "iPlay" and then discovered that half of the urban family was at "Let's Play." On the way home Jack said with a smirk on his face, "Well, that actually worked out pretty well."

April Holidays - Apples, Chess & Bike rides

Jack won a gold medal for his school chess tournament. He was very excited to attend the C7 chess tournament in the school holidays and he did so well, winning 3.5 out of 8 games.

We ventured out to the Tanbella Orchard at Pialligo on Tuesday which led to a weeks worth of apple love. William absolutely loves apples and he had to try each variety and size for flavour comparison.

Sam reached the quinces. Juliette has been making the most delicious quince paste which I just love to spread on english muffins.

Stuart has started the boys playing magic the gathering and they are absolutely loving it. 

Half of the apples were dehydrated and they didn't last long!

We went for a great bike ride which ended up getting very wet. It started raining when we were on our way home. William made a record time up the hill in the pouring rain.

Palm Sunday

William played the role of Jesus in the Palm Sunday assembly before Easter. 

Happy Easter

We enjoyed a quiet weekend catching up with friends and family and celebrating the Easter holiday. Grandpa cooked a fabulous seafood feast on good Friday. 

Grandpa gave the boys a few cricket tips after lunch until 4 balls ended up on the roof. 

We visited the Corvette show on Saturday and caught up with the Motbey family for dinner. Uncle Stu finally met 4 week old Tommy.

Sunday morning was hugely exciting and the boys were up early. They enjoyed finding eggs in the garden and we went off to Tidbinbilla for lunch. We had just enough time to eat before the rain set in.

The boys spent some time setting up an art gallery where they were selling their pieces for the bargain price of $1.

We had a visit to Questacon on Monday and spent countless hours putting this puzzle together. Thank goodness for the rain or we would have been working all weekend cleaning the garage and the garden!
