Weekending: park and pets
Ash came on Saturday, she heard that hubby was working all day so she offered to pay for a taxi to take us all to the arboretum (taxi means I can take masses of bags of stuff and not have to come home because one child is too hot/cold/wet/bored/hungry/thirsty). I packed towels and swim gear for the water park too.
It was gorgeous all day, sunny and bright and breezy and fresh and SO GREEN.
On Sunday, Tali had been up all night so Martin made the executive decision to let sleeping mamas lie. I didn't wake til 10am, to a suspiciously quiet house. They were all downstairs watching Mythbusters! Too late for Church, we instead headed for the pet store to get Jenna the promised fishies. Talia was very suspicious about the Chinchillas...
Then Chad park for the traditional Sunday afternoon play time (and chips from the community cafe). It was a much greyer day, still bakingly hot most of the time we were out, but heading towards rainy by the early evening.
Talia adores being flung around and put on the play equipment by her siblings. Her laugh is just perfect.
And Jenna's new pets are safely installed. Thanks to Ashleigh for the wonderful birthday present (the great big tank!). They are called Rosemary and Lily. I don't know why. The children keep trying to get them to come when called.
Welcome, welcome, to another week. So many plans and a to-do list that won't stop growing, and hardly any energy to do it all, but we're all still here. :)
