Playing in the park

Published by under Mitchell,Toys and games,Visitors

This Easter, like last year, we were joined by our good buddies Ben, Ange, Lily and Ruben. It was a great weekend with lots of noise, fun, chocolate eggs – and a fun play on the new spider web and flying fox near our house. As always it made us wish these very special people lived a lot closer so we could do this more often!

Put the boot in

Published by under Sports,Toys and games

A few weeks ago Mitchell started soccer training with the local club. And so far, he loves it. Considering how wonky his old man is, he’s showing some surprising talent with the ball.

Five weeks in the States

During most of December, across Christmas/New Years and into the beginning of 2012, we wandered, moseyed and explored our way around the US of A. It was an absolutely fantastic holiday that included:

  • Orlando (Disney, Legoland, Kennedy Space Center)
  • Washington DC
  • New York
  • Chicago (Christmas – bloody cold, but no snow damnit!)
  • San Francisco (New Years eve)
  • Big Sur coast down to LA

All in all we had a huge time. I posted lots of photos on tumblr, but I’m reposting a few favourites here for posterity – and some that we didn’t put on tumblr such as Mitchell as an astronaut, and us swimming with the dolphins.

NASA Kenney Space Center

And some of our favourite pics from the tumblr load

Here’s a few more photos from Mitchell’s swimming lessons at Lifestyles gym. This time from the briny deep.

And here’s some video to prove that like the proverbial swan on the river, things are not always as calm and graceful as they seem!
