Crashing out on the couch after a big day at childcare. This is pretty much how I wish I could be every day Zac when you put on The Clone Wars.

Another opportunity for international cuisine, this time Vietnam.

As usual the food was excellent – and the hot weather led to the appropriate background atmosphere.

We started with rice paper rolls and then Rachel fulfilled her role of bringing us the dumplings of the world with a delightful steamed Vietnamese version.

From there it was to a profusion of food including a roast chicken, BBQed chicken and chilli and lemongrass chicken, rice pancakes with prawns other deliciousness and caramel pork.

Dessert featured coconut creme caramel and chocolate fudge.

Everyone enjoyed the opportunity to meet baby Imogen properly at Sarah and Simon's house.

Of course, it also provided the opportunity for other fun activities as well…

What more could a small boy want than a walking, talking storm trooper?

yesterday while for the rest of the country it was officially Melbourne Cup day, here is in Canberra its title was "Family and Community Day". And we had a public holiday, which was lovely.

To make the most of a midweek day off and the arrival of sunshine, it was over to Steve and Shell's for a bbq.

Between them Zachary and Sebastian captured the afternoon in photos.
