A day at the park..

If you live in Sydney and you’re looking for an amazing outdoors area to get those steps in, I highly recommend Mt Anna Botanical Gardens! With free entry and heaps of trails, it’s the perfect area for little kids and adults like! With numerous lakes, wildlife and fauna your kids will love the botanical gardens!

Inflatable Fun!

If you’re like me, you’ve probably wandered through a many Kmart and Target searching for the next project, or the next birthday gift. I’ve browsed most of the shelves looking for home wares and kids toys- sometimes during my lunch break at work, other times, late at night once Ava has gone to bed. Last…

Entertainment for days.. well multiple minutes..

Major Cities by Omy Ava is at the age where a piece of toast will occupy her long enough for me to eat breakfast.. at dinner time, a cut up banana or piece of chicken will hold her attention for at least 5 minutes as she tries to self feed herself.. it is amazing.. While…

Ava- 9 months old

I decided to dust off the old camera to take some shots of Ava! We can’t believe she is 9 months old! Motherhood has and continues to be an amazing experience..

Back to School Free Printable Drink Sleeves

I came across these free printable coffee cup sleeves over at WhipperBerry- I think Heather’s post was sponsored for a particular cup (which I don’t think we have here in Australia)- but it was such a great idea that you could use on any takeaway cup. You can buy coffee takeaway cups in bulk from your local grocery…
