Exciting announcement!

I am beyond excited to announce that Sal's sister (Aunty Shell) and her husband, (Uncle Michael) are expecting their first baby!!!!

Shell is almost 22 weeks now, and had the scan today that tells us they are expecting a girl :)

We are so excited. This will be our first niece and the boys first cousin!

Shell is due at the end of October :))

Super fun no-work day!!

Aunty Shell and Uncle Michael bought Ben and Ethan mini golf tickets for their birthday. Yesterday we managed to all have the day off from work together and went to play some mini golf. It was wonderful for all of us (Shell, Michael, Nanna, Sal, Tracie, Ben and Ethan) to be able to spend the day together and nobody had to rush off to go to work. Often when we spend time together I (sal) have to work at 3pm, so our days are cut short after lunch :(
Ethan named our day "super fun no-work day" as 3 of us who would normally work got the day off to make this day happen :))

We started our day at Aunty Shell and Uncle Michaels house with something to eat, mid morning before golf. 
Then we went to the mini golf place and played 2 courses (2x18 holes) we sped through it as the boys were super keen to move from one hole to the next. Shell and Michael were up front with the boys, Nanna in the middle and Tracie and I bought up the rear. As I was holing the camera, I wasn't able to get too many shots, but here's a few...

To save me commenting on each, Ben is wearing red with a green hat (and a monkey on his back in some shots!) Ethan is wearing black shirt and blue hat.

All the boys in their hats :)

Super fun no-work day - continued

This post is a continuation of the first, please read the other one first.

After mini golf we had some tasty lunch and then headed to a new park.

We are so jealous of the wonderful parks near Shell and Michael's house. They are amazing, and we love exploring them when we go visit (we live an hour's drive north of them). We found a new park with some fun equipment for the boys. They had a great time :)

This park had a cool flying fox with a big chair and seatbelt that Ben loved!

And a water pump that Ethan loved!

And a hammock that Uncle Michael loved!
We had a fantastic "super fun no-work day" and we are hoping we can organise another one soon :)
