Around Here

It's school holidays here in Queensland and we are having a nice and easy week.  We went to see Johnny English at the movies, hanging around in our pj's, baking and basically chilling out.  Here's a few pics for you.

This girl of mine is always smiling.....

This is the "pullback shot" of the pic I took above.  She was leaning over the fence.
Below "what you see" and above pic "what I see".

Love your big kids....

Trying to squeeze in the frame with my camera rested on some rocks for a family pic.

Pretty afternoon light.

We met this horse on our afternoon bush walk.

Our new budgie Charlie.

He's still only a baby.

Sienna giving him some love.

Kelley's amazing "Day in the Life" Album arrived.

Leather cover, thick pages and a special coating on the pages to protect them from accidental spills.

Kelley and her cute kids giving her a kiss and cuddle.

Oh no...sometimes I feel the same way when my spaghetti falls off my fork too Em.

Another double page spread of Oscar feeding his metal bird and Kelley showing Em a funny video.

I had the pleasure of taking some photos of a local High School Senior for her formal last week.  She has had a difficult year due to heath issues and she was glowing with excitement getting ready.

Caitlin wore a beautiful navy jump suit with a blush pink belt and shoes.  

All dressed up ready for the senior formal.

Birthday Tradition

Yesterday was my birthday and every year I take my "Birthday Photo" with my kids and 4 cupcakes.  We have been buying the cupcakes from the same bakery for 13 years for this photo with the exception of one year when they had sold out early and I had to purchase some cakes from the supermarket.  This is the 13th photo in this series and when the kids have grown up and left home they will still have to come home for Mummy's birthday photo.  Here is a blog post with the previous 12 years of photos starting when James was 2.5 and Sienna was 6 months old in 2006.  They both made me beautiful hand made cards and we went on a family BBQ so a lovely Birthday and it's all over for another year.

Here is the 2018 photo

Here are some outtakes
