Luca - Having a time out from the trampoline. Unfortunately, he finds it a little hard to fit in when there are a group of kids to play with, it all turns pear shaped after a short time. He is more of a one on one type kid.


Remi - Waiting for someone to push him on the big swing up at my sisters property on the Hunter Valley. So tired from swimming in the pool all day.

Ethan is 16

We love it up at my Sister's property in the Hunter Valley. The kids get to run free, they don't have to worry about anything (except Brown Snakes - eek). 

We went up there a little later than normal today. My nephew Ethan turned 16 during the week and had his party on this afternoon. 

It was torrential rain almost the whole drive on the freeway and I thought that the day was going to be awful up there. The last thing we wanted was a house full of bored kids. 

The clouds parted as we got closer and the sun shone all afternoon. Even into the evening the clouds stayed away. We spent the day swimming, chatting, swinging, trampolining and eating...

Once again a lovely family celebration. Thanks for having us Harvey's and Happy 16th Birthday Ethan, we hope you had fun!!

I couldn't pass this photo up this week, the two of them snuggling. They're always tired from the busy week they've just had, and are happy to sit in front of the TV on a Saturday morning enjoying each others company. I'm so glad I snapped this one.

Untitled Luca - He loves to swim any chance he can get, this time it was in the lake, with his brother and cousins, they all had so much fun.

Untitled Remi - He still loves dressing up more than any other play activity. My brother's engagement party was the perfect time for him to let loose and try almost every hat and wig on to get his photo taken. Oh, those freckles!

Untitled Cousins - Big and little, they all get along so well (most of the time).

Family Portraits

So my art making is pretty quiet these days, although, I was asked to help paint some fun face cut-outs for my Brothers Engagement/Baby Shower on the weekend. Here's how they turned out...

Untitled Luca: First day in Year 3. Growing so fast, such a kind soul. Really bad asthma this week, spending some time watching movies on the iPad.
Remi: A couple of weeks back at kindy and the first vomit bug of the year has found him. Not feeling so well this week. 
Both kids so happy to have Daddy home after a week away.
