Whilst the Mummies were having a lovely time at the Baby Shower, Daddy and my two not-so-little ones joined up with another Daddy and his three boys to go playing in a creek since it was a hot, sticky afternoon and it would be great to cool off on the last day of Summer. They had such a good time on Saturday afternoon that we all decided to repeat the fun on Sunday, the first day of Autumn!
I love when we get together with our special friends. The five children get along beautifully and its just like the title of an Enid Blyton book!
Just like in a Famous Five story, the motley crew needs to feed first before any adventures can begin! You should have seen the smiles when they realised donuts were on offer!!
Let the adventures begin! It was lovely just being able to sit and listen to the cicadas making their enjoyable racket.
Dams are always on the priority list when a creek is involved in play.
The Daddies got stuck in too with dam building!
It was a superb dam in the end.
It’s also fun breaking the dam apart! There is so much to do with logs, rocks, leaves and sticks with creeks. The next game was a thong (flip-flop) race, this didn’t end to well as a thong went missing in the water. Thankfully it was found but it was decided it wasn’t the best game to play and replaced it with a leaf.
My Little Lady is good at joining in with the boys but dam building isn’t at the top of her list of fun things to do, where as she enjoyed decorating rocks with “paint and beads” or in other words “mud and stones”. Hmm, I wonder where my Little Lady gets her decorating ideas from, I wonder?!!!
Watching the sun streaming in through the green leaves was very relaxing. It did not feel like the first day of Autumn, it was just as hot as ever!
The beautiful textures all around were very inspiring. I love the soft, subtle hues of lichen.
Well, all good things have to come to an end, there were tears on departure. The five have such good fun together. The Famous Five always had there adventures in the school holidays and so must this set of five.
Until next time.
