a cute outfit indeed ☺

Now this is one of my MANY nephews, his name is Adam, and his father is, my brother Robbie and he is holding his cute little girl Chelsea, such a cheesy smile ☺♥

April's Dad ready for the big day ☺

plenty of balloons and decorations

and HEAPS of food which I did not really take pictures of.....

April with her candle and Mum and Dad helped blow it out

Ready to smash her very own cake ☺

and this is a rarity me with my 3 grandsons.....Brandon almost 18, Sebastian behind him 15 and little Riley 4 with his Dad...was so wonderful getting a pic together

Getting ready for another snap lol 

Then Ray appeared with April so now 5 of my grandies!! Misty refused she sat on a chair behind us busy with her ipad type thing lol 

Brandon is soooo tall now xo

my Sarah with Miss April 

April just love the bunny that hangs off my mobile

They had a pinata in the shape of  a "one" in the distance there lol  

They all lined up to have a whack.....Misty is the one with the long ponytail and her brother Riley in the stripes ☺

Everyone had a good old whack more than once and Misty smashed it apart.....very pleased with herself ☺ and that is April's Mum Lauren ready to have new baby soonish ☺

Lollies fell every where and little Miss Chelsea was so cute she managed to carry some back to her Dad with her dress up like a catcher lol 

April practicing walking with Daddy, she can now crawl quite well ♥ 

She even had a ride on a little back with other grandad

and I managed this snap as Riley walked  past me ya ☺
It was a great day with lots of fun, eating, cleaning and general good old catching up with so many whom I got NO photo's of lol 

We then headed to our city place and went out for tea that night at this  place 

and I was very happy as they had GRILLED seafood salad (very rare to not end up battered) ♥♥ and it was so tasty.....low carb happy 

and Paul enjoyed rump steak with salad and NO win
Well how is everyone out there??
Me I have a busy week or 2 ahead and today is stinking HOT LOL

Fun with April

Hello out there......still slowly blogging you can see in this blurry pic we now have a car seat and will be able to pickup April or drop off and also can have Riley also in the seat as it goes from 0-8 so perfect ☺

And it is Australian too 

As we were going to be having April for a night we also picked up a high chair as the seat she usually uses is at our city place ☺

Miss April checking out Woody ♥

Such a cute face and of course I am not biased lol 

She is crazy for Elmo ♥

We ended up having April for 2 nights and has a few walks out with her and she seemed keen for Woody to come along too lol 

Looking through the roof of our pusher and can just see she is holding Woody's hands, so cute 

She also loved my mini Kiwi ☺ we gave her a much bigger one after our trip last year ♥

Taking a photo with my mobile and she loves the bunny that I have attached to it lol 

April had a lot of fun over the daytime and had fun throwing Bulls-eye around lol 

She was in bed when I took this snap....all toys now resting ☺

On her last day she was happy watching Granpa 

Granpa was cutting some  pork with his electric slicer...entertaining lol 
We took her home to her Mum and Dad who were certainly happy to see her again ☺

On Saturday night my sister Julie and her hubby Carl came to see our city place and the following morning we took a couple of tram rides and visited the Queen Vic Market great place to visit a lot and pick up fresh produce/food and also clothing etc etc it is huge.....

Selfie of sisters lol 

It was a beautiful warm day and we had a lot of fun catching up
Now back home again and we have a little person's FIRST birthday coming up ☺☺
Back again soon xo

New years eve fun and beyond

Hello again, here we are in the big smoke checking out where some of the fireworks were going to be near us......simple selfie looking back ☺

The television people were rehearsing HOURS before but was fun to watch....the young guy used to be our sport guy for Gippsland news but moved on the the big smoke with Channel 7 his name is Sean Sowerby ☺

Certainly looked like they were having fun lol 

Hours later getting ready for the real fireworks to begin.......

and they were impressive although my mobile can be a bit testy lol 

Bang....plenty of

We then walked back to our city joint to relax after midnight ♥

Next day we thought why not do the tourist thing and visit the Melbourne Zoo, so we caught a tram 

I did not take many pics of other animals but we are now members so can go back again and again for better snaps....monkeys here 

A Gibbon I think 

A little dark but a almost white Gibbon 

Little monkeys

Giraffe having a drink 

Male Baboon was busy chasing a poor female who was NOT keen lol 

Racing off after her......

We then took the train back into the city......

and did this tour.......

Padded cell which has footprints going up the walls......interesting

looking out the door 

This was the drunk tank

drain hole so they could put any drunks in here and hose them down and LOCK the door.....

Main part where we had a pretend arrest of some of being one of them 

Shower area for the men 

Looking back through main area and there were plenty of us doing this tour

Creepy but also very interesting at the same time, normally no roofing so open to the hot days and freezing cold winters.....

Heavy locking door 

Oh dear, what do we have here lol 

Makes a good criminal ☺

Oh yes and apparently I was arrested for growing suspicious drugs and because of my T-Shirt guard said I was off the planet and out of this world lol  

a bit of fun......

and later we went to Crown which is a casino in Melbourne and checked out their Xmas display which was real neat

little eggs opened up with a different song in each egg.....Jingle bells here 

There was Frosty the snowman too next time will get better pics.....ended that day so wait till next year lol 

and this is a little plant Sarah gave me for Xmas and is staying in the city and already has a new leaf growing ♥
Love to you all out there from us xoxoxo
