Hello from Brazil

Just a quick hidiho. We made it after a long, delayed, crappy flight. The little boy was an angel though and made soooooo many friends. He has such a charming smile. Anyway, it has been very full on meeting everyone but we are loving it here and enjoying the weather, the food, the family. Baby Minol is changing so much so quickly. He is ba ba ba-ing. And vo vo vo-ing. And eating heaps! He even has little man boobies now! Anyway, gotta go. Love to everyone! Miss you all!

cambridge park

Just checking out the "stuff" at Cambridge Park.  We like testing everything out.


It was a fab day for a picnic today.  It was also my last morning of work before our trip... whoohoo.  I can now finally focus on packing and preparing.  Grandma Luci is just going to love this little Grandson of hers!

Mummy Club

Monday was my last get together with the girls before me and the boys head off to Brazil.  I am really going to miss our mummy club and don't know what I'll do on my own in Brazil!  I made sure we got a pic this time so in years to come we can look back on our little munchkins.  They are so much fun.  It was cute as this time little Minol and Jake were crawling around together and had a big play with Ben and Cloe!  We are lucky that facebook got us back in touch with Mandy who we all went to school with and who has just had her own little munchkin Noah.  Toby entertained us all with his HAT!  Yes, that's a big hat Toby!  Ooooh, what fun!

all in one day

Quite a few driving lessons for this little dude today.  And a flying lesson.  Oh yes, and how can I forget... he even had his first horse sitting lesson.  What a day.

Quikpics... more to come


On Thursday Minol said he was going to go for a walk with Phil up the mountain.  They've been really getting into going on their little (BIG) hikes up the mountain.  Minol kept saying he'd take me too so on Thursday I asked if there was a nice easy walk that I could do with them so I could take baby Minol.  Yeah yeah.  This one only takes 25 minutes to get to the top.  So off we went.  Almost 50 minutes later I got to the top catching up to Minol who had taken baby Minol off me about a quarter of the way.  Even without a baby I was snail pacing up because it was SO STEEP!  Nice one guys, coulda warned me.  For days after my legs ached which felt good but not when I had to compete on Saturday!!  But it was a lovely walk.  I stopped complaining on the way down, it was much easier but still pretty steep.  We got to put Chelsea's Lolly Pack to use and Minol loved it.  Not a peep out of him for the whole walk.  He loved just cruising along, checking out the... trees.  Very cute!

getting ready for brazil

We're on the count down now.  Three weeks until we leave for Brazil!  Haven't even thought about what to pack yet but I'll get my butt into gear soon!  Minol loved trying on sunglasses while we were out shopping the other day and would check himself out in the mirror each new pair we tried on him.  And whadda ya know... he now has a pair of spider man sunglasses!  How does that happen?!  Whenever I go out wanting to buy something for ME, I can never find what I want and end up getting this little ratbag something!
