Today is Cupcake Day for the RSPCA and Alex’s work was doing a fundraiser – so naturally we had to supply some homemade (thanks Sheridan) chocolate cupcakes adorned with puppies and bones. Delish.
Just watched Star Wars Episode IV (ie the original Star Wars) with the little dude.
The official verdict: ‘it was awesome!!’
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!
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.

And some of our favourite pics from the tumblr load
This week is bookweek and all of the kids at school had to dress up as a character from one of their favourite stories. Here’s Mitchell as the Rajah from the book the Tiger Skin Rug.
The kids also had to send in a photo of themselves with the theme ‘One world, many stories’. This was Mitchell’s entry – and he won the competition for best photo!
Here he is collecting his prize, a book voucher. The little dude was stoked!
