More memories made
Graham and Aleks stopped past the craft stalls on their way back and bought us this beautiful "family" to say "thank you". What a special gift. We will always remember them and our SA trip when we look at it. Hannah loves it and keeps touching each "person" and naming each family member. :-)
While the children waited for lunch Graham kept them busy with a few games of Uno.
It was lovely to have my Dad make stir fry for lunch as it was a family Sunday lunch tradition for many years when I was growing up and it brings back such special memories.
My Dad also had prickly pears with this weekend which Ruth enjoyed trying (and I enjoyed as another special memory from my childhood).
Hannah has made good friends with Graham this weekend. It was fun to watch them laughing and playing together.
After lunch it was off to the pools again. Hezekiah enjoyed his kicking practice.
Ruth is trying really hard to work out this swimming thing. Michelle and Brendon spent some time encouraging her today with it.
It was not all work for Ruth though. She even started going down on the slide on her own - right from the top. She just made sure there was someone at the bottom to catch her.
And it was great to see Hannah being more courageous in the water and jumping to Dad. What a HUGE jump too.
After pancakes and goodbyes Graham, Aleks and our family headed down to the trampoline.
While we were out we spotted this beautiful kingfisher. It's been nice having Graham with to help spot different birds and tell us what they are.
While the girls waited they spent some time drawing with Aleks.
