Jul 12, 2009 - Sunday Again

All good things must come to an end, but everyone had a great time on the trip to Phillip Island. Sunday rolled around and what else do you do but burn stuff again? Haley took time out to try her hand at digging for Ned Kelly artifacts (inspired by a TV show we'd watched), ever mind that Ned never roamed around the area, but it kept her entertained. Later the kids tapped into their inner MasterChef (local TV phenomenon) and cooked soup with Nana (just a pity it's not actually edible, but they're learning garden to kitchen cooking).

Jul 5, 2009 - It must be Sunday

There was a demonstration of working Draught Horses, so we went out to the Moora Reserve to check it out. Haley found a comfy spot on a buggy. Then, because it was Sunday, it must be time to burn stuff.

I finally got the kids to cooperate in saying Happy Birthday. Bribery works. But it's going to have to wait for me to get to something that I can make the movies into smaller files (and also for my email to come up - Yahoo is having issues this morning). Haley's bruise from her close up and personal visit with the grass (complements of going too fast on the motorbike) are coming along nicely. It hasn't dampened her entheusiasm for riding the bike or slowed her down at all. Maybe today's rain (and tomorrow's forecast hail) will.

Jun 28, 2009 - Bush Babies

Another weekend, another day on the farm. But this time, the motorbike was fixed (Finally! as Haley would say). Haley did take a tumble over the handlebars at one point - she finally decided to turn, and took it too tight. The bike is OK though. In between "turns", cousin Aidan made Haley a swing. All in all, it was a good day

Jun 21, 2009 - Fire at the Farm

What better way to spend a Sunday afternoon than lazing by the fire and having a BBQ with the cousins . Pictures of the bush-soccer match . The US was drastically undermanned though I think Haley was playing Girls vs Boys.
