Ruth had her "outing" with Dad on Monday while returning the sander and so Rachel and I made the Thursday our time out together and booked tickets to watch the Hobbit 2. It was lovely to get to watch it together and Rachel was literally shaking with excitement when it started. She has read the book a number of times and is thrilled that there will be 3 movies. She says she doesn't mind when they add things in to the movies - she would rather have them do that over taking things out that are in the book. So she is more than happy with this lady elf being added to the story line for the movie.
Well - after 15 minutes they asked that I put the timer on for another 15. After those 15 they asked for 15 more. You can see all the jackets and jerseys came off.
Brendon was working in the worst area where there were really bad prickly weeds and they were even racing to see if they could get more than him. Hezekiah moved around and was mainly Dad's helper.
Below: After 45 minutes I suggested they call it a day as it was getting close to lunch time. The younger girls had teamed up and gave Rachel a good run for her money. In the photo below Ruth suggested they put their foot up on their pile - showing off their effort - and so Hezekiah has his foot up on his pile too. Thank you children - you helped Dad wonderfully and got so much done.
The thistle next to the apricot tree that was already well over a meter high. Nasty prickles on that one.

Asher's favourite spot in the lounge now - with toys surrounding her (and safely away from the plants).
A great place to work those legs. :-)
Here is the video I got. I must try get one with her lying and pulling the cushion over herself. SO much fun.
