PICNIC DAY
Today we went to a local park for Lucy's birthday - she has just come back to Sydney from a year in New Zealand so it was especially nice to join her parents and her two younger siblings in this birthday celebration. She is the little girl in a hot pink fairy outfit. She is a gorgeous girl with a wonderful imaginaiton and a fantasy world known affectionately by a few of us as 'Lucy Land' - a lovely place to be.


BMX GIRL! Santa brought Kit this bike for Christmas. Hannah loves it! She often climbs on it, rings the bell and tries to use the pedals. She is really too short for it though and as soon as we get some solution to our house saga (we just missed out on a house at auction yesterday so are hitting the rental market tomorrow - I hear it is as vicious as the buying market heaven help us!) I intend to find either a trike or bike for her - I know she'll like it.

Sometimes Kit gets tired of Mummy's camera. TOday he decided to fight fire with fire - here he is using his own 'camera'.

Stella is always keen to come with us in the car - she has a spot in the back of our station wagon. Sometimes I wonder what she thinks - from the joy of "Yes I am going too!" to being dragged around on her lead by kids and poked at by various toddlers - she must think: "Oh no - another kiddies function".


Hannah was keen to go on to the oval where the football was - she pointed a few times indicating she wanted to be down there. When one of hte fathers was showing his son how to hit a tennisball with a cricket bat - seh was nearby keen to have a turn - not that she got one (that is another story), then she found this Wiggles ball ... this afternoon in our back yard she had Kit's cricket bat and a ball - and had lots of fun trying to cathc and hit that ball.

what a fun day at the picnic! Hannah sure does look like she is enjoying that bike - look at the big gorgeous smile on her face! Kayla has the same problem- being too small (or having legs too short) to really reach the pedals. Her PT at school ordered some smaller trikes for Kayla to use and she said they seem to be better. She told us we chould check one out of the school for the summer so I need to remember to do that!

Ohhh - I am loving all the pictures :) Looks like a beautiful day in the park! Brady has a radio flyer tricycle that has an adjustable seat - it is just perfect :) We got it at Toys R Us - not sure if they have those down under :)

Thanks for sharing you cute kiddos with me!!

Fun day! I have a bike suggestion. I wish I had used this with Nash from day one, and now he is too big for it....the seat supports their back, is adjustable, and lets them be successful and look cool at the same time! It can be found cheaper at other sites, but this is a good picture and description. If you lived here you could have Nash's!

Hope the link works, if not just google Schwinn tricycle and find the red one with the bucket seat. Sells for 50-72 bucks.

Hannah is doing well to balance on that bike. She's a real out-door kid.
