Ben has decided that he can feed himself and drink out of a big boy cup. I’m not actually sure how much he is eating and how much he is wearing (or the dog is enjoying). He loves it!
Ben loves to play outside. He particular loves Daddy’s motorbike. He has fiddly fingers and will play with all kinds of things – rocks, tools, pegs, sticks, bolts, locks ect. This weekend while outside with Dad Ben decided it would be fun to post a peg in Daddy’s motorbike exhaust…. Oh Dear! Ben had a great time with Dad while they pulled the bike apart to get it out.
This afternoon we had a ripper hail storm. The storm came generally from the south west but when it hit the hail appeared to be coming from every direction. Luckily our only casualty was the peg basket which was hanging from the clothes line. The largest hail was about 30mm in diameter. The noise on our tin roof was unbelievable.
Thanks to our kind neighbour David who works for the RAAF, we were able to find a great viewing spot.
I took heaps of photos with the Nikon D80, but only a few of them are OK (great camera, not so great photographer).
Cameron and I are off to Bathurst today for the weekend to watch the annual V8 Supercars 1000km event. We are camping on Mt Panorama again should be fun (McPhillamy Park). I think the last time I went was back in 2003.
I will post an update next week.
Charlotte our neighbour came over to play with Benjamin this week. Charlotte is in Prep so has a keen interest in writing. She has a gorgeous journal that she gladly carries with her. Ben and Charlotte had been playing outside when Charlotte decided to have a rest and do some writing. Well…….Ben wasn’t to be outdone. He dragged a chair over to Charlotte and climbed up himself. He initially tried to steal Charlotte’s journal and pen so we soon got Benjamin his own. It was definitely a Kodak moment. The two sat together giggling and writing for a good thirty minutes.
