Our roof continues to leak, the study flooded, the windows are wet with condensation and I am sick of the rain!!!!!!!!
Poor Benny has been sick this week too. He had an infected gland in his neck that the doctor said was enlarged from a recent tonsil infection. We knew he was sick about 4 weeks ago with coughs and temps, but didn't know he had tonsillitis, poor boy.
The lymph node (gland) in his neck swelled so big we noticed it just by looking at him. It looked like a lump slightly smaller than a golf ball in his skinny little neck.
He is on another course of antibiotics this week. He has had 2 days of temps and one day of vomiting and nausea. Thankfully today he is better, no temps or nausea for 2 days and the neck lump is shrinking. He is more tired and grizzly than usual, but getting better :))
Ethan remains healthy :)

I have recently decided to visit every park in the local area. A friend of mine is going to join us, and has called our adventure the “Great Central Coast Playground Tour of 2011” (as a joke!). There is probably about 20 good parks, and 50+ average to poor parks in my (semi) local area. I am going to write a “review” of each park that will be published in our local multiple birth club news letter and website. My information will be a bit more twin specific than the average park information that is available on the local council website. Things like fences, pram accessibility and age appropriateness of equipment is on the list of things to talk about.
Last week we went to our first park together…. I haven’t been to this park before, it was amazing. It has a fully fenced younger kid area that attracted the under 6 crowd. It had a pirate ship, sandpit, house, swings, rockers, slide and heaps of great stuff. There was also a HUGE bigger kid area that had a massive spider net, slides, rock climbing wall, round-a-bout, bike track, picnic tables, BBQ’s and so much more. We will defiantly be back to this park again!
To save me writing about every picture, Ben is in the yellow/green jacket and Ethan is in the orange.
I should also mention that these jackets are reversible jackets that came from Uncle Graham in America. The boys LOVE to wear them with the fleecy side out, as they have seen the men who operate the diggers, bulldozers and construction equipment wearing these bight coloured safety clothing. They call them “digger man jackets” and think they are just so cool wearing them!
A great morning at the park.
We are looking forward to another park next week :)
Last week we had a day out with Aunty Shell. We took the train a few stops down the line and went to the park. It was a beautiful sunny winter’s day and we all had a great day.
It was a great day. Thanks Aunty Shell for coming to spend the day with us!
