Whatever I write tonight will not do justice to all that we have done today. Miss O and Izz did not wake until almost 8am but it was non-stop until they went to bed at 8pm. Who knew that 12 hours could be so exhausting?
We started the day with pancakes for breakfast then I did a couple of loads of washing and some sewing alterations. First up I re-did the elastic in both pairs of pyjama bottoms. Next was letting down the hem on Miss O’s dressing gown.
I also added ribbed cuffs and neckband to Izz’s pyjama top.
We left home at about 11.30 and went to a strawberry farm at Beerwah were you can pick your own fruit. 2 buckets and we were underway.
The girls very quickly figured out that the best ones were red right up to the top of the fruit. Izz still needed reminding that it is best to pluck the fruit rather than clutching them in your hand!
I had packed a picnic lunch so the next stop was Glasshouse Mountains township and the park. We had ham and avocado sandwiches, home-made sausage rolls with our own tomato sauce, home-grown mandarins and freshly picked strawberries. The playground, complete with flying fox provided heaps of fun and games.
Then it was next door to the visitor information centre where the girls discovered a wall puzzle of different dinosaurs as well as an interactive history of the mountains on a touchscreen. This centre is well worth a visit if you are in the area.
Finally, we headed home via a local fruit stall and chose a few things including a pineapple to use on our pizzas for dinner.
Later this afternoon, I made 3 batches of muffins and of course had lots of help. 2 batches were made with added berry yoghurt and coconut which I cooked in small patty papers and they will be frozen and used for snacks for daycare.
Dinner was pizza followed by strawberries, ice-cream and a pancake then it was showers and bed for 2 little people. After a very busy day we had absolutely no arguments about bed and sleep.
They are not the only ones who will sleep well tonight.
I hope you have had a great Sunday, too.
Sounds like a great time was had by all. Just wonderful that the girls enjoy simple things . Your sausage rolls for lunch – did you have them warm and if so, how did you keep them warm?
We had them cold and they were very enjoyable.
