Last sunday the weather was nice and the children were all in the “right” mood for a bike ride, so off we went. Maisie and Talia are both riding without training wheels now, so they usually get to pick the way that we go. Alice went in the trailer behind Lisa’s bike and Pippa went in the child seat on Cade’s bike.
The big girls just started Tennis this week over at the Margaret Court Tennis Academy.
They loved it and wanted to go again the next day, so we got our old rackets out and they have been hitting out in the garage on the brick wall.
We are very lucky to have great tennis coaches in our family – thanks Cam!
Another busy month has flown by – just a quick couple of photos for the month. We had a fantastic long weekend with family down from Sydney, a trip out to the weir wall to see the water and lots of park visits. The photos above are from an afternoon that the girls spent with Bek – as you can see they had lots of fun! We have been finally enjoying the warmer weather now that its decided to come and play with us – which means lots of time spent outside.
We went over to visit Sam, Ben, Izzy and Lucy and had THE BEST TIME in their “backyard”
This year we travelled to Canberra and Jindabyne for our holiday. This was chosen because of Cade wanting to run in the Canberra Marathon – which he did an awesome job of!
We stayed with Hannah and John in a 3 bedroom apartment in Canberra which was pretty cool! On Saturday we went to Questacon with the Bakers and also with Nat and Matt who drove down from Sydney to join us for the day. The girls had a great time running around trying to see everything. We could have spent the whole time in the 0-6 room!!
On Sunday after the race we headed to Jindabyne for 3 nights. We went to Cooma for the day to see the Mortons (who were also in Canberra!!), drove up into the Kosciuszko National Park to see Mt Kosciuszko, went for lots of plays in parks and on some bush walks before heading back to ATown on Wednesday.
As always it was busy and crazy – but so good to get away and see some beautiful things.
nicknames in our family have taken off – its just so much easier than trying to get the right name out. So, if you hear us calling for the following – you now know who we are talking about.
Maisie = Moo/Mooey/Mooba/Mooey Canooey/Miss Moo/Mais
Talia = Tally/Tal/Tally Banally/TalBal/Tals
Alice = Cece/Cece Balece/Ces/Macca Pacca
Pippa = Pippy/Pip/PipManip/Pipsticks/Pips/Pippy Longstockings
And if anyone is in a grumpy/bad mood – its Humpf.
Strange thing is they always answer to whatever they are called…
Time again has got the better of me and June is about to be one crazy month, so here is May in four photos:
We have had a huge weekend! The girls are exhausted after lots of trips out and about and we are all ready for an early night.
Here are the girls all dressed in their new PJs from Great Grandma Mary.
And Pippa exploring her bedroom (she was on the rug, but everytime we went in she was in a different place)
not sure where March just went – so very quick photo update!
I dont think I have ever laughed quite so much since my children have learnt to speak. All day every day I am constantly kept amused by the goings on of my household. I can only imagine it gets better and better!
Maisie “the reason that I have to get up at night time is because i have pains”
Lisa “which part of your body has pain”
Maisie “all the parts”
Lisa “why should you have a treat?”
Alice “tause” (because)
Talia “im sooooo tired”
Lisa “well, get big bird and go for a nap then”
Talia “biggy birdy doesnt want a nap”
