Sam in the local paper

A couple of weekends ago we went to a sculpture exhibition at a reserve in North Sydney. It was called Sculpture at Sawmillers and Sam had his photo taken by the local paper. It was a lovely afternoon by the harbour with lots of people, sun shining, many interesting sculptures and a sausage sizzle! (Unfortunately no play equipment for Madison, she had to make do with a couple of large rocks!)

Fun at the Fair and others

Happy cuddles with Dad.

Fun at the Fair. A local primary school's fair day.
Madison conquered the Big Dipper.

And the Sizzler!

Very cold waiting in the very, very long queue. (this photo actually makes it look warm and sunny)

Our beautiful 'angelic' princess.

Aaaw, so helpful!

Madison in the play corner with their artwork board.

Can't afford to buy shoes, so we make our own.

Madison's 4th Birthday - Party #2

Madison's birthday party was at home with six friends invited. It was a beautiful morning and they all had a wonderful time, and we did too! (sorry photos are a little out of order)

Eating cake.

The cake was a princess fairy cake, good job on the decorating dad!

Lots of dancing to be had, including ring a ring a rosy.

Decorating cupcakes - yummy!

Adrianna, Madison, Chiara, Billie & Rose

Pass the parcel. Even Sam was joining in!

Floating away!

We had two chrysalis on our tree on the balcony and we saw the butterfly from one. It is a Euploea core corinna. We had three caterpillars but one of the cocoons got eaten, even though they are poisonous.

We are still here.

Madison and Sam are playing well and Sam has just started crawling.
