Boys and their toys

On our way to the Scandinavian Festival in Brisbane last Sunday, we drove in to a petrol station. Behind us was a bright yellow Lamborghini. Jonah informed us that it was a Lamborghini Gallardo. Yep, our car expert knew exactly what kind of car it was and started share facts about it.When hubby went to pay, I took both kids to take a closer look - Jonah was so keen to see the car up close. 

Out of the blue, the owner asked Jonah if he wanted to sit in the car!! How cool was that?! Pretty awesome, if you ask me. He left the keys in the ignition and went to pay for his petrol. Amazing!! 

The owner even jumped out of his car before driving away, so that we could take photos of Jonah - with the engine running! What an awesome way to start the day ☺ Jonah was pretty blown away by the whole thing!

Cool dude in a cool car!

What a sweet guy!
He made my son's day☺
...and I will always remember his lovely gesture.
Thank you!

Jonah's 8th Birthday

Yesterday was Jonah's 8th birthday! He brought Swedish vanilla buns to his class - which went down a treat. In the afternoon he opened his presents... Can't believe he's already eight. Where has the time gone?

Book Week 2014

Children's Book Week is run by the the Children's Book Council of Australia. Each year in August, schools and libraries spend a week celebrating books, Australian authors and illustrators.

The students in Prep, Year 1 and two celebrated Book Week dressed up as a favourite character in a big parade. This year is the last parade for Jonah as he starts Year 3 after Christmas. Next year Lily will be in Prep and gets to participate in the Book Week - this year she was happy to get dressed up too!

Master Jonah as a pirate!

Outdoor Princess in pink!

We finally got some rain the other day!
The brown and dry grass changed to green right in front of my eyes.

Our outdoor princess was fast to get out and enjoy the wet weather.
She made lots of mud soup!

Have a great weekend everyone!
Thanks for stopping by☺

Mother - Daughter Day!

When hubby took Master Jonah to the V8 racetrack in Ipswich the other day to see Day 1 of the big event 'Coates Hire Ipswich 400 V8 Super Cars', Lily and I had a Mother - Daughter Day. We spent the day in the park. The weather was perfect and we had a great time.

Up in the air!

Pretty cool with a kangaroo ride
- We are in Australia after all☺

Lily on the swings

I've always loved stonewalls. Not many stonewalls around n our area, so I'm enjoying this one tremendously ☺ On the way home we walked past this beauty. While I took photos, Little Miss Lily took the opportunity to climb and explore - Cheeky Little Monkey!! Are you able to spot her in the photo below?!

Gorgeous bougainvillea.

Lily and I stopped and 'smelled the roses' too. I'm not sure what the flowers are called, but I really liked the colour - and so did Little Miss Pink! Maybe bougainvillea?? They didn't look like the bougainvillea across the road. Either way, they are beautiful!

Even the dried blooms are pretty.

Gorgeous blue sky as back drop!

Hope you all have a great week!
Thanks for visiting☺

Blue sky

I love the light during our winter and the contrasts in nature.
How beautiful is this sky? 
No clouds, only blue sky as far as you can see.
Gorgeous blue, green and yellow.

Queensland weather, beautiful one day - perfect the next!

Thanks Sally for always hosting.
