Big camera

While James was having his first ever interview as an "expert" academic, Sebastian and Jude were fascinated to see the camera in action. Of course, Jude couldn't remain silent in his fascination  – he was first banished inside, then had to be told to move away from the window which he couldn't resist banging….

Anyway, afterwards, the nice SBS camera man let Sebastian and Jude have a closer look at his camera.

The boys were very interested, and we rewarded the camera man with one of the little cakes we had just been baking!

More park time

As last weekend really was beautiful weather, we got some more park time in on Sunday. This time we rode our bikes over to the fort in Commonwealth Park to meet up with the Family Prosser.

Zachary wasn't sure about climbing up for the slide by himself at first (he just wanted to hold hands)

but after a bit of encouragement he decided he would follow in Martin's footsteps…

He wasn't the only one who enjoyed the slide.

Great Olympic musical deceptions of our time

At least we finally admit that the Chinese were no more dodgy in their opening ceremony than the Australians were!

It was a classic Canberra winter weekend, so on Saturday afternoon we went for a wander to a couple of the nearby parks.

Sebastian and Jude rode their bikes, while Zac got to ride in the pusher.

Somehow the boys ended up in a uniform of red jumpers and green pants – though in Zac's case they were at least stripy.
