Fathers are fabulous!

To mine, his and theirs, I want to thank you for the influence you have in my life! You all make me want to be a better person.

Today we celebrated Father's Day with a BBQ at Rosie's and afternoon tea at Greg's parents. It was a lovely day and so nice to catch up with family. The boys were totally smitten with their new cousins and Audrey and Emily had fun setting up a jewelry shop in the front yard. The dads and the boys and my brother had a great time playing cricket before lunch too. Thomas had his first bowling lesson and seemed to pick it up ok. I made up a recipe for Beestings (dad's favourite bakery item). Possibly could improve on it for next year though!

We spent yesterday afternoon playing ping pong in the garage. Greg and I use to play quite a bit B.C. (Before Children :)). In between tennis and mixed netball we had a bit of time spare every now and then. The kids had a great time and I even managed a rally or two with Thomas. I forget how much fun that sort of thing is, and I guess as the kids grow up they will be able to do more with us, so maybe our active lifestyle will return one day!
Everything is going well with baby at the moment. We are now 23 weeks along! I can't believe how fast it is going. Only 9-11 weeks to go and we will meet her. I can't wait to hold her in my arms and neither can the rest of the family. Out of everyone, I think Audrey is going to have the worst trouble adjusting, she has been the baby of the family for so long. She has always known she wouldn't always be though and is eagerly awaiting the day she is not the smallest or last one to do something. She did say today that if bay came before her birthday rather than after it her life would be ruined forever! Let's just hope we can hold out til 33 weeks then hey!
The kids have been playing so well lately. Their imaginations are just so well developed it is scary. This week they have been developing a special alien language they speak to each other when they are role playing! It is such a crack up to listen to them...a life in the theatre is destined for one of them I think!
Only two weeks until holidays. I can't wait to get to the beach and hear the ocean and the gulls again. My skin is in desperate need of some sunshine...not a tan, just that healthy glow I get ;)
I have not had much time to scrap lately, TAFE is sucking the creativity out of me! I am hoping to get back into it soon. I have already packed a stack of layouts to do on holidays have been busy scouring the internet for inspiration. When I find it, I will let you know!

These photos are gorgeous, Ang. Audrey cracks me up. She's grown so much since I last saw her!
Hope you are well and I'll catch up with you soon. (I do look out for you on Mondays, but I just don't see you!)
