Aussie, Aussie, Aussie!!!!

Happy Australia Day everyone. I hope you all had a fantastic day and for those of you who ventured outside, I hope you managed to stay cool. We went to the festivities in the park for our day. The girls were thrilled to bits when the Dorothy the Dinosaur show started. We had kept it a secret from them for two reasons. The first being that we love seeing their little faces light up with surprises like this, and the second being if they knew about it we wouldn't have heard the end of it lol. We thought the show would only be about 20-30 minutes, so it was a surprise for us when it lasted 1 hour. The girls sang and danced their little bottoms off. Quietly I would have been happy if it finished after 30 minutes because it was soooo hot. We were going to get faces painted after the show, but the line was very very long, and we probably would have been waiting close to an hour in the sun for them to be done. So we decided to call it a day and head home out of the scorching heat.

I couldn't decide which photo to use for today's fun, so I am going to use both!! This is a pic of Em and I relaxing in the park. I used to hate having photos of me taken, but I have gotten over that a little now and love getting shots of me and the girls together. I love this one!


And of course we needed a photo of today's big attraction

Don't you love Dorothy...I know the girls do!!

Anyway that is it from me today.
I really do hope your day was fabulous!

That's a gorgeous pic of you and Em. I always hate photos with me in them but I am really trying to make a point of being in some of the kids photos. I'm sure they'll appreciate it one day. Hehehe...and good old Dorothy, my two used to adore her :)

Renee, you are in disguise in your sunnies. I hardly recognised you! I love doing Thelma & Louise photos - they are almost my favourite and fast becoming one of my little trade marks. Great photos, and HAPPY AUSTRALIA DAY TO YOU x
