When Grandpa John was here he trolled through Netflix and found an ancient episode of Hercules that Mum was on when she was (much) younger. We arranged a special viewing for Papi since he had never seen it before and was in Europe when Grandpa John found it.
See look! That’s Mum!
Her role was the leader of a pack of boy crazy girls.
She did lots of screaming and chasing after boys.
She snuggled up to Hercules and gazed into his eyes. But he made it clear he wasn’t interested.
So she took off with another guy!
Great message Mum! But Papi liked seeing it as much as we did.

I’ll take any shoe.
From any where.
At any time.
It’s so narrow minded to think shoes are only for feet.
Mind where you leave your shoes!

Usually we don’t go out to dinner on a Tuesday night…
But tonight, 50% of our bill at Veggie Grill gets donated to my Gymnastics club.
And besides, my baby brother is 16 months today so it’s kind of his birthday treat too.
If you want to enjoy veggie burgers, soups, salads and sides of kale, cauli-mash, quinoa and carrot stick fast food check out Veggie Grill.

Rafa showed Grandpa John around at the gym whilst I was taking my class. He took him to the foam pit to watch me do BIG jumps from the trampoline.
After dinner, I read Grandpa John a story. He liked that too. At one stage he questioned if the story was “progressing”at all. Good stories take a long, long time, Grandpa John.
Happy travels from here Grandpa John! It was great to see you. Love from Ana and Rafa.

Nadia is turning one and she invited us to celebrate at Munchkin Playland (Which is our favourite local kids’ cafe).
I got busy cooking up hotdogs on the BBQ.
and racing cars around the track.
Until I needed to have a bit of a rest in the sailing boat.
Whilst Ana was scaling bridges.
and generally running wild.
Until it was time for birthday cake.
Happy First Birthday Nadia.
For further details to Munchkin Playland and other visits go here and here.

Grandpa John came down to breakfast this morning with pressies all the way from Australia!
Rafa liked the car wrapping.
He looks great in his new, blue hoodie and he also got a super cool shirt which he’s saving for the birthday party we’re going to tomorrow.
My present was in purple butterfly wrapping!
And check out my new outfit! I’m going to wear this to the birthday party tomorrow too.
Thanks so much Jennifer!!!! We’re pretty sure you did all the shopping, wrapping and organising of our presents into Grandpa Johns bag! They suit us perfectly and we love them.
For those who are just a little bit jealous: Rafa’s hoodie and shirt are by Sprout. My top is by Milkshake and the skirt by Oragami. All of which are from Myer (Sorry US friends – Myer is an Australian store). My outfit also came with perfectly matched hair clips but you’ll have to wait and see tomorrow.

I got Grandpa John out on my play set within two minutes of us getting in the door. He’s a good swing pusher, I was going really high. You’ll also all be relieved to know the crocodiles didn’t get us.
I lucked out on my favourite pasta, ahem, I mean Grandpa John’s favourite pasta but we all thought the carrots and hummus followed by chicken and salad was delicious.
And he found my diaper stories just as hilarious as Rafa and I did.
To see the original plans, go here.

Ana, Mum and I were discussing plans for Grandpa John’s visit this weekend. Here’s what we decided.

Papi is away for work again. He swears he’s working really hard. He sent us photographic evidence.
Yep, that’s Papi in the back row being strangled by the mascot. Apparently it’s all part of the job.
