More summer fun

We've done so much these past few weeks I can't keep up to tell you all about it, so let the pictures do the talking...

Gorgeous interstate visitors came to stay...
they played with small children, swam with them, read to them and generally let them crawl all over them...
Two of my favourite people making fruit salad for dinner
They also pulled some pretty funny faces when playing with the best 'Man' Christmas present ever.

For the record, she held this catch and bunch of other ripper ones too.
Just make sure that the small folk are not in front of said toy before you throw, and no we didn't use her for target practise.

We also didn't let her build a cubby under it as she wanted to.

Brilliant for big kids and small ones, one player or many.

We've done a lot of bouncing...





Smiling and posing...
Could eat this kid at the moment... well,  most of the time
And the guy who lives here and the girls built a much anticipated vegetable garden, filled with lots of goodness we are looking forward to enjoying.

It won't quite yield crops like these, but will do for now!

They proudly built it from scratch and it was painted wearing hats, shoes and knickers - perfect painting attire for minimal clean-up (that's what the kids wore - the man was clothed!).

Decorated with a plate we each painted and the tiles our two kinder girls of 2011 made for Fathers Day last year.

There actually has been some sewing going on - but I keep giving things away, zip pouches and hats among the gifted items to family and friends.

And there's another gift winging its way to someone lovely, so once it arrives I will reveal all.

Love your veggie garden. I need to do something like that in my front garden (it's the best spot).

Yeah, that Tan, she's alway showing off. LOL (I'm a teeny bit jealous tbh.) :D

Your summer looks as busy as ours but lots of it nicely spent at home, mostly enjoying each others company.

That game looks like so much fun! Good on you for starting a vegetable garden. It is well worth the time that goes into it, we are loving ours.

Looks like you have had a fantastic summer. A shame it is coming to an end. Love the painted tiles/plates on the garden bed!

Sounds like a busy fun-filled holiday with cousins! I can't believe the holidays are coming to an end already.

I know where the gift is going, can't wait to see it!

I have no idea what that game is but that second photo is hysterical, those facial expressions made me laugh!
