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.

Dinner at the Zen: Photos by me…and small boys.

Our first big event of the most recent Adelaide trip with the ritual trip to the Citi Zen for mother's birthday. Here, small boys got to meet their new little cousin Emilie for the first time, to much delgiht (til Zac decided "I don't want this baby).

Other attractions of the restaurant, prior to food, involved visits to see the fish, in both the pond and the tank. Zachary was particularly fascinated by the teeth on the barramundi. "The fishy has sharp teeth!"

There was much eating and drinking and stealing of the camera from Me-Me to enable a whole range of candid shots by budding photographers, Sebastian, Jude and Zachary. Some highlights below.

At the end of the night, which was possibly not the best choice of timing, Nana decided to try and gather all her grandchildren together for a photo. Herding cats. The expression of Zachary's face reveals that he will soon be  moving into totally uncooperative mode:

…which indeed he did, leaving the others to struggle on and try and get a pose which captured everyone at their best….

Adding to the number of highly unflattering photos there are of me in the world, Jude and Zachary have been taking photos again.

There subjects range widely, but generally return to people. You'll note that in Zac's case, this includes Little People. Other subjects include the leaves in Jude's mystery box he took for Show and Tell on Friday (Jude), Sebastian's light sabre and the breakfast table. Not to mention the consumption of breakfast.

Ah, the wonders of digital photography.

Boys take up photography

Jude decided to take some photos himself last night. They didn't turn out too badly:

Zachary's efforts, on the other hand, were a little more patchy.
