Weekend review

Friday we went to see the movie District 9 - totally bizarre alien movie - but SO different it was actually kind of good!

Saturday we made our way up to Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park for this view from West Head at the very top of the Northern Beaches - the Barrenjoey Lighthouse in Palm Beach is JUST visible in the distance

Looking a bit to the right (south) to Pittwater (the backside of Palm Beach) a REALLY lovely area

and looking back left to Lion Island - it's a bird refuge because there are no natural predators on the island (also no cats or foxes). They think it is named Lion Island because the first visitors to the area thought it looked like the sphinx.

We even saw a wallaby! Cute!

And on Sunday we headed to Steve & Selina's house to celebrate Clara's second birthday!
I was lucky enough to get to meet & hold Selina's sister Georgette's 4 week old baby Marisa

Amelia and her cousins had a GREAT time in the jumping castle!

Meanwhile Clara got in to the cream on her scone - yummmmmmm

Later, after some fun games, it was time for the birthday cake! Shame there's a beer glass in the way for this photo cause Amelia & Clara look sooooooooooooo cute!

A good close up of the cake - how CUTE is it!!

Close up of the awesome cake Selina made - very impressed!

  1. Fun to see Steve and Selina's girls; they are very pretty. Loved seeing the photo of you holding the baby. Your hair has gotten so long and it is great to see you looking so happy and well. Less than 100 days until we visit Australia! YEAH. Love, Mom

    Never seen Barrenjoey from that angle - but have walked up it many times to the lighthouse. That cake looks gorgeous too!

  3. Look at you with that baby! How cute!
