Family photos

Back in May, we finally got some family photos done. We got them done with all of Sam’s family for his mum’s birthday. They turned out really well and we are all really happy with them. My boys weren’t very photogenic, but they’re still cute. Too bad they’ll be outdated soon.

We’ve had quite a bit of rain lately. It makes for lots of indoor days, which can get pretty old. So the other day I got out some paint. We found some rocks outside to paint along with some empty toilet paper rolls and the boys went to work. It was messy, but kept them occupied for close to an hour. I was planning to put googly eyes on them or something, but we never made it that far. Oh well. It was fun.


And the aftermath. It was straight into the shower for these little painters. As you can see, Owen really got into the body painting. I don’t think he actually did any of it on purpose, which is pretty amazing.


Some things we’ve been up to


Building dvd towers with Athena


Jackson loves our new “transformer” vacuum and Owen the cat



Jackson is really proud of himself, since he’s the only person in our family that can do the monkey bars without help!


Hanging out in the fort Aunty Charlotte built for them


I love my little monkeys!!

Day out

The boys and I didn’t do anything very exciting over school holidays, so I decided to take them for a day at Southbank. We walked around the river and spent our whole time there at the playgrounds. The boys had a great time. We also treated ourselves to some delicious ice cream and the boys got balloon swords. They didn’t last long, but they were fun while we had them. It was a good day spoiling my boys.

A couple of weeks ago my friend, Jess, and I decided to take our boys to Dreamworld for a day before our passes ran out. I left Owen with his favorite aunty, and we set off. Jackson was strangely not excited to be there in the beginning, but eventually warmed up. He’s not one for going on the rides, but he sure loved watching Xander go on them. We had an awesome day! Thanks Jess, Xander and darling Aurelia!


Stupid teacups. I felt a bit ill after this. Those boys did a lot of spinning.
