PBC Expo 2011

I said last year that we'd make the Pregnancy, Babies & Children's Expo at the Convention Centre an annual event, especially for the joy of the animal farm. For a trip down memory lane, here's last year's post and photos

SP & I made the trip (on the bus!) on Friday, and had another great time. We spontaneously met up with a friend from church and her kids, and a very dear friend with her gorgeous adopted son whom I hadn't previously met - hooray!

The animal farm was a hit again. SP was very excited to tell Uncle Phil about the 'little piggy' on the phone this afternoon.

Dorothy the Dinosaur wasn't as exciting as I thought it might be. Captain Feathersword's impersonation of Incey Wincey Spider falling down was quite traumatic; Sam LOVES Incey Wincey and I think he was quite concerned for his dear friend's safety. Plus, the absence of the actual Wiggles was keenly felt. 

So while Dorothy continued, we headed over to the Red Nose Day Traffic School. He's always been into riding cars, and he's currently into parking them as well. Bobby Cars look fantastic, but we really don't need more ride-ons at this point!

We didn't see much of the actual stalls, but we went for the entertainment and got what we were looking for. We'll be heading there again next year, I suspect.

Creative sparks

I've been working on Isaiah sunday school material all year. It's been hard slog. 

Finally (a few weeks before it's due to be used) I've got some creative presentation ideas. Now my brain's running a mile a minute. Bring it on!!

Airport Lookout

Thanks to a friend, we've discovered a new favourite place to go - the lookout just past the domestic terminal at the airport.

Parking, grass for running, a concrete platform to stand on and lots of planes to watch. And a whole lot of new words for SP's burgeoning vocabulary.

We got the finer details from here: - it's the first one on the list.

Anybody need an airport pick up?

Dear SP

I'm very happy that you're excited about another airport run tomorrow, and it's very cute that you can say 'pick up airy (area)', but I'd really prefer that you spent naptime asleep. Trust me, we'll all have a happier afternoon if you do.

Love Mummy
