what a month. been a bit slack on updating the blog, as those of you who check it occasionally have been reminding me... Sorry to those who got utterly sick of seeing Ella sitting in a baby bath on the back porch. perhaps November will be a better month for updating web sites...

perhaps I could reward myself with ice cream for every blog entry I get posted within a day of the event? or maybe Ella will then eat tooooooo much icecream.

Lucy didn't get any icecream she just had to sit and watch her big sister eat it, while she chewed on Daddys sunnys.

Lunch out at Stephen and Angelas place. lovely view. (had to brush all the spiders off the rocking horse before Ella could have a go though. I still prefer NZ on that count)

Lucy and Stephen, and the local produce...

cant remember if this was in the morning or just before bed, but Lucy is still in her PJ's.
Perhaps morning going by how happy they both are in this photo.

Ella proud of her book that she produced at the library craft/story session and Lucy spent the session rolling around the library floor entertaining all present..

filling in time before Ella's first swimming lesson of this term, at the playground next to the aquatic centre.

Lucy with a cheeky grin on

Lucy's first adventure down the step and outside. she almost bumped her nose on the way down, but luckily Mum was there to quickly catch her nose before it hit the tiles!

Ella's swim lessons at the octo-pool

needs no explanation

this was immediately after spending 3hours weeding and tidying the kindy playground and front yard, at their spring workingbee. Note: temp 35deg. we had to call in at the bottle store on the way home for some local bubbles to cool Dad down. Ella helped carry them home for me.

Every stay at home Dad needs one of these, its the 'get your beers home behind the push chair thingy' patent and copyright pending...

here we are at a big indoor play ground and cafe, we rode the bikes 45mins to get here (again just over 30deg...) and it was nice to be at least in the shade while the kids had a good old session in the play area. coffee close at hand too which was nice...
Ella had a ball on the 'slippery dip'... that is what a slide is know as here in South Australia.
Lucy lost her cracker...

And Ella made friends with a Storm trooper... (and her friend Holly)

Ella and Holly at a family fun day

action shot of Ella going down the slide today at a play ground/cafe

When you just have to shake your booty...
so on that note, (as I know you are now at least smiling... if not laughing out loud) I will try to keep things a little more up to date in November...
keep on dancing.
