August Sunshine

School kids get two show holidays in the month of August. The first is mid month for the Ekka, and the second is this Friday for our local show.

BEFORE our current winter heat wave struck we were having our normal gorgeous August weather. The girls and I packed up our picnic basket and headed out to enjoy it.

They started with a few games of "Guess Who" before hunger pains set in.

So we dished out the quiche,

and the strawberries and watermelon.

After lunch there was a little light reading for me,

some colouring in for one, and

some playground action for the other.

Once their lunch had digested it was time for a swim. (not for me though. it may be warm in the sunshine, but not warm enough in the water!) They took a bit of getting in, but eventually they got wet!

Some unwelcome Ibis,

Some playing in the sand, and

a late afternoon visit from Mr Pelican.

Hope you enjoyed our day.
