River Weekend

I was going to make a slideshow, but that sounds like, all a bit too much work, tonight!

Tiny had a ball, exploring all the sticks, bark, leaves, bottle caps and even the odd cigarette butt (ewww!) Here she is proudly presenting a big piece of bark she thought was very valuable!

Just clowning around (who else thinks she looks "cute as" in this outfit?)


Sunrise, on the river. God Bless Mr T, for getting up, and taking a very vocal Tiny out for an early morning (630am!) stroll along the river!

Mr T even took Tiny on the Ferry!We're all up - time to chase Tiny! (yes, she's still in her PJs!)


Going back for a re-run... of course, there were fierce arguments over, who actually won... I was too busy trying to take the photo, I didn't see!

Father & Daughter. Mr T decided to go all "Grizzly Adams" for the weekend! (note: stubble)

Father, Son, & "youngest" daughter! (Miss M took this pic.. isn't it great?!)

H-man digging his way to China?!


Watchin' how the big chicks do it? Do you dig it?!
H-man has an unusual take on "boat ride"! And there's no show without Punch - Tiny goes in to inspect!




Drive home... 1.5 hrs.


We had a great weekend. Tiny slept well, in her porta-cot, and even napped in her pram.

Just had to say a HUGE THANK YOU to Old Uncle Tommy and Hot-Mama Auntie Linda (didn't think you'd appreciate "Old" Auntie Linda!), and to your wonderful "River Friends", for being awesome hosts. For feeding us. For taking us out in your awesome boat. For "accomodating" our children! For "going without". And for just being great friends. THANK YOU. (now, that I've kissed your butt - I imagine the pay rise you expect is off the cards?!!)

Also, as you know, I'm a bit addicted to digital scrapbooking. I've stumbled across some fantastic blogs that offer free kits. So I thought, I'd let you know when a freebie comes up. Stacy has one this week, called Cirle of Life. Great for all those Zoo trip photos! I'll post some of my latest pages tomorrow. If you're into gorgeous kits - you should also check out SCRAP THAT IDEA store, they have loads of super cheap ones, and very reasonably priced new ones.
