Well my birthday was an eventful one! Tom & I with Lyon set off on a skyline walk after distributing our kids elsewhere. It was super windy and misty, Lyon and I nearly got trampled by a charging cow and then Lyon behaving like a younger dog jumped and hurt his ankle... so Tom ran back for the car and wheelbarrow and we met him at Crofton Downs track. We still managed lunch and bubbles before pickup and dinner out at the pub. Life is never dull! Lyon has no broken bones!

Just stumbled across this photo of our fur child. He doesn't just much a look in these days, but Lyon is a very family friendly chap especially with Iris taking an active interest in him which at times are lovely and other times not so, you can see why Lyon is weary of children. But I can see how much fun they all have and will have.

I think we forget how far our mr Stinkle has come since we have had him in our lives. He is so good with Olive. Will now play fetch and loves chasing with her. Ignores Iris completely which is to be expected at this age. He loves toilet rolls. Will even stick his head through the door if one is ready. His other favourite toy is the native cabbage leaves for chasing with. We love you buddy.

A beaut blue and still day in the capital. Managed a lovely walk along the waterfront with 'antsee', Lana & Nige. Saw some art, piano playing and had noodles for lunch. Finished off with the best tantrum Olive has ever had (everything is awesome!) - she became obsessed with walking Lyon, even across the busy roads. Iris slept like a baby, in fact didn't know we had left home. Later the kids enjoyed a box of fun while we enjoy a drink with Marcus, Jess and Orson.

A crisp walk with Olive in control of Lyon. She has became very assertive with telling Lyon what he should and shouldn't be doing. Meanwhile a little later around the park stated "mummy there is a pebble in my boot" so we stopped to shake it out and then Olive refused to put it back on, walking half way around the park in socks. She seems to take any opportunity to take her shoes off these days.
