I didn't take
DEFINITELY COOL FUN....SAFE?
As my mother and her mother before her would have said ...
"You just dont see the danger, like I do" . Ah yep I do.
Well their Dad, bless him, thought it up and touch wood no accidents ...yet.
This "Remote control motorbike with a rider on it" was on the list and Jarred nearly turned inside out when he opened it and realised it "was on the list"
Whippin' up a few extra terrestrials, out in the shed.
How did Santa know....this is a boys dream!
looks like Daniel's had a brainwave
as he announces, he is now... DOCTOR DAN!
"NURSE CONNOR WHERES MY SCALPEL?! "
Yet again proving I am indeed a Mother of three boys cries of glee erupt at the suggestion we make the aliens with red glitter guts! (AHEM!)
Then for something all together different....
A DAY OUT IN ALBURY/WODONGA
We visited the war memorial and I must say it is one of the most impressive I've seen. Constucted on a massive hill overlooking town the monument itself is huge, and alot of thought has gone into how it has honoured each soldier with individual plaques circling the epitafe, Their Name rank, where the fought and their age. It really was moving as we looked at some of the names the boys were quite solomn and reflective as they considered each solider and how old they weren't and would never be.
The view was amazing from the top of the hill, and stretched out for kilometers across the Valley bellow and the winding Murray River.
Everyone laughed when we said we went for a drive to Albury, as its not that far away. I guess it doesnt sound like adventurous school holiday fun, but we had a ball. The boys havent stopped talking about their big lunch out at the commercial Club (like we dont feed them?!...we do but usually not in public! LOL) and the shops were huge many and brilliant (esp. Spotlight ...I got in so much trouble! Cant wait to go back!)
Apparently they have a ten pin bowling alley so we are going back another day of the holidays to give the boys their first bowl that doesn't involve the Wii! I think they might be shocked to find out that its not as easy as it seems on a video game!
