Weekend Nature trip





Weekend is always FUN for us...

ANZAC Day this Saturday and spent the early morning for a scooter ride , yeah,, its been awhile since I took the kids out at the park, considering it is just a  5 minute walk to the park and the lake .
 Since Joe went out for awhile I took the kids out,, they were excited and happy to ride their scooters , It was such a Fine Autumn day and we have to stop to every play area for a bit of rest ,, because it was a long walk around the lake ,, this is what I like about our suburb,, a lush green place and play equipments for kids plus a clean lake where we can feed the ducks 

Then went out for fine dinning   in a nice restaurant..  It was really good because my kids were so behaved that we have get a compliments from other dinners telling how well behaved our kids are.. My hubby said its nice to get compliments knowing that we worked hard to teach them good manners....


SUNDAY drive is always FUN for us, this time is Land hunting ,, yeah ,, we are dreaming of building our dream house, we know thats its gonna a tedious work but we are up for the challenges ....1st challenge is to look for a land , considering the area, the school , the community , the accessibility and so on.. endless ....  and we found an interesting place ,, a piece of a mountain,,,a 3.3 acres of land .... whoaa,, it was breath taking and juts looking how steep and how hard its gonna be,,, we like the place ,, but would we like the price????? thats a different story.....
So the quest is on and we are keeping our dreams alive......!!!    



Or another option to buy this beautiful homestead , a few blocks away from the land ...  
why not save the hassles of building....  beautiful from the outside must be immaculate in the inside....  .. need to book to inspect .... and agin if the price is right........




This was our weekend and how about yours??? join us here in Weekend Snapshots

Looking for Toy

It's been such a busy week for us ,, since it is school holiday and Micah is working during school holidays I have to take her to work in the mornings... Hey,,,, thats life now.... A sassy Mom as a chauffeur  ,,,  I kept on joking that she has to pay for my petrol and my services .. since she earns more than I do .... aside from that I have B1 at home to entertain and that means taking him at the shops,, since its been raining the whole week..... and very Wedenesday B2 is at home ,, no preschool for her on that day ...
I thought that B1 had outgrown hi LOVE for Thomas the Tank take along toys,,, but  since we took him to see Thomas the train last Friday ,, his love for him,,, ignited again... so now we are hunting for Bertie the Bus take along toy ..... why him??? because he doesnt have that  on his collection yet... 
Yup... he's got Thomas collection and I will surely showcase it next time on TOY HUNT ... Back to Bertie,,, he is a  rare engine now,, since he was on the 1st batch of take along that was released ages ago.... we've been all around shops searching for him and it is so frustrating , so I am now searching high and low online  looking at sites offering Toys and  Games.....
Although he is not a big fan of books, his little sister have been busy hoarding all his books and taking it away from his room and neatly placing it one her bedside table ,, so the lil sis is into children's books and loves to read at night time before drowsing off to Lala land.....
aside form books ,  she is into clothing for girls and shoes!!!! yeah the Lil Princess is loving all the attention and loves dressing up and since its getting cold here I have to pack away her Summer clothes and take out her Sweater
and  winter gears.... 

How about the big sis???? I just bought here a bag yesterday,,, since she had been such a good girl,, she is working hard and she said that she enjoys working , if there is a party , she would the Host of the party,, and that what she  enjoys,, she is outgoing and talkative and she is good at it....

A Day Out with THOMAS the Tank

A day with Thomas the Tank and Friends!!!!!He is such a well loved train all over world and his shows are entertaining....

It was a beautiful Autumn day at the ZigZag railway up on the mountains of Blue mountains , my very excited boy was beaming with happiness when he heard Thomas' whistle,, and when he emerged ,, children and adult alike were all anxiously waiting to be be seated on the carriages...

We've been here 2nd time but for Braiden the excitement was like it was his 1st time to see the Big Thomas!!!!!


The train ride was exciting ,, it was fun when went on dark tunnel and seeing the view of he mountain, not minding the ashes thats coming out of the train, so when we looked out of the window it will be all over our faces,, it was FUn and that's a part of the experience,, seeing  and smelling the burning coal... 
We zigzag down the mountain into a shed where kids enjoy 2 hours of fun riding rides, face painting, jumping castle , small train displays and much more....
It was FUN and we'll surely come back again.....

Mommy Moments (Sentimental Moment)

mommy moments
Mommy Moments for this week is about Sentimental Moment...

This is my recent sentimental moment that I felt .. when Braiden started his 1st day of school as Kindergarden last January 30, 2009 . It was such an apprehensive feeling that we all felt... My hubby and I were a bit anxious about thewhole experience,, this will be our boy's 1st day of school.. It was all too much for braiden , the separation , the new place, new faces and he cannot grasp the whole experience,,, too much going on, although we took him at school for a visit before he formally started , but all he did was protest and telling me that he still wants to go to his preschool...

His eyes were so swollen from crying....


It was so sentimental when he started crying .. his eyes were swollen and he just wants to keep on holding to my hands,,, we just reassured him that everything will be fine and we will be back soon... when they started lining up and went to the classroom,,  he just said Bye and off he went,,, whooooo,, that was a quick transition!!!!!!

3 months on and he is loving his school ,, the teachers are Great and he just settled in well....!!!!!
And this is the 1st week of school holiday for him.....
and to get him understand the teachers made a chart for him that he can cross out and when he will be back to school ,,
 they will come back to school on April 29 Wednesday.... and the chart is good same as the chart that I've made for him about the Thomas the tank  see below post....

Thomas and Friends

Last Time I posted about the Sticker Chart that I made for Bianca... This time its a Calendar for Braiden.... A month ago when I booked a ticket for THOMAS the TANK at the Zigzag Railway , and Braiden was terribly excited ,, everyday he would ask  me everyday about the event,, and I kept on telling him soon.... But, just telling him is not enough,,, his teacher suggested to me to make a calendar for him so he can cross out the days and know how many days left for the said event...  and true enough it is really Good because , he can count the days and he is excited to cross it out at nighttime...

March 31 (Tues)
WE have 2 more sleeps to see THOMAS, it will be on Friday April 17 2:00 pm.. It is such a sell out event ,, we even missed out on Sat and Sunday tickets , that is why we have to go this  Friday instead. This would be a our 2nd time to go to the Thomas and Friends , and it was fun the 1st time and for sure it would be great this time....







Immerse yourself in the world of a child and embark on “Our Friends of Thomas” adventure. Setting off from Clarence Station we board a train behind Thomas the Tank Engine and travel down to Bottom Points Station. Greeted by the Fat Controller, he kindly directs you to the workshops, which have been cleared and filled with Thomas fun.

Your stop here will see you enjoy a Thomas Carnival experience, with rides and amusements, miniature railway displays, tattoos and face painting and of course refreshments to keep your stamina up to enjoy the Thomas fun.

The Thomas train will return to pick you up and “chuff” right up the steep climb, back to Clarence Station and your car.
Feel free to wander around or picnic in the Zig Zag grounds, and watch the hustle and bustle of the engines travelling to and fro, all day long.

The Friends of Thomas experience runs on set dates as a special event throughout the year, and due to its popularity, bookings are essential.
