In the midst of the preparing (like madly watering the garden) and packing, or rather THINKING about packing (the great procrastinator that I am)I have forgotten to post about my boys big third birthday!!
(did a crap job of editing that photo, didn't I? isn't the colour awful?!)
He had a great day - nothing overly special was planned - but gifts (all stuff a little boy's heart desires - tools, and trucks, and a red wheelbarrow!) and cake, and his dad home ALL day, and driving on the forklift, well that made it all pretty wonderful for him. That and having a win over his father at tea time and getting away with not eating dinner (grrr!)
Can't believe that he is THREE! I told him (jokingly) that now that he is three, he was too big for cuddles (being a very snuggly boy) - he got the saddest look on his little face. Oh I love winding my kids up. Probably makes me an evil mother (like how I told them pressing the door lock on the car keys would make the car BLOW UP KABOOM - I think they really wanted to press the button to find out, but boy...what if Mum wasn't kidding! I could see the cogs turning!)
Anyhow, I'll take lots of pics of Mission Beach for you all. And I can promise you the one photo you won't be seeing, is me in a bikini, or any swimming costume whatsoever!
