We've started somewhat of a tradition over the years, where our Australia day fun begins at the harbour. We meet up with the family, admire the thousands who participate in the annual aquathon, spread out a picnic blanket, and enjoy a leisurely brunch together.
Now that you are old enough Lola, with a fist full of tickets, you dart around the park agonising over which rides to try out. And this year, to your delight, Edie wasn't far behind. The jumping castle was a shared favourite.
And as for you Maeve, well you slept soundly in your pram, waking up with a smile, before taking in the spectacle of it all with wide eyes.
Uncle Jimmy's famous banana bread, with yoghurt & berry compote.
Eyes on the ride...
Maybe next year peachy...
Bouncy castle fun with Edie.
Then it was home for a rest, cookie baking & dancing in the yard.
With the evening drawing near, you & papa snuck into the bush to make some rabbit traps.
When Maeve awoke she sleepily joined in.
Then a sneaky rabbit (Lola) grabbed a carrot & ran for home before Mr Tod (Papa) could catch her!
A barbeque feast, a couple of cool drinks, an early night for you girls, a movie for us, and that's a wrap. Good times.
