Trying to Catch Up...

Ok, I've barely had time to scratch myself since coming home, but thought I'd better get these photos up before even more photos fill my camera and the workl0ad expands to intolerable proportions...

So, the trip to the Barossa (to visit my parents) was fabulously relaxing, and honestly I could have stayed for another week, but all good things must come to an end...

Here's Ari saying hello to Amma Yja (aka my mum) on our first morning there...


A study of concentration...


And then it was, "Hello, Grandpa Lester!"...


As my parents had missed so many firsts already, we saved Ari's first bath for this weekend! He loved it!!!


Having snuggles with Amma, while she sings "horrible Icelandic nursery rhymes" (about bad, bad men who live in the mountains and steal sheep)... Put him to sleep every time!


Grandpa Lester building a pergola in the back yard...


The pergola is nearly finished! We spent most of our time outside sitting here, it was very peaceful!


Having a chat with Grandpa...


Family portrait...


So sleepy before heading home on the airplane...


It was good to be home with big brother Bryn!

Sounds like you had a fab and relaxing time! I love your mum's outfits!

Glad to have you back though!

Gorgeous shots, esp with your mum! I can't believe how much Ari has changed already though! They grow and change so fast at this age...

Teenagers and the failing parent...
