Deanne popped out to Target this morning while Josh and I were getting ready. Joshua spent some time playing on the tablet because we were going out in the afternoon.
Bob arrived at about quarter past twelve, while we were just finishing off our little pizzas (bought bases with cheese and tomato sauce, then ham for Josh and sundried tomatoes for Deanne and I). After finishing off the cake she was making we jumped in our car and drove to Fremantle.
We found a parking space nearby then walked to the Shipwreck Museum. It was very good, with a small part of a recovered boat called the Batavia, which was a Dutch East India Company (VOC) ship which sank in 1629 about 400 KM north of Perth. I can’t remember if we took you there when you came over but if not we might have to go next time, as it’ll remind you a bit of the Mary Rose.
After leaving the museum we went to the café on the waterfront, the one with the big fish tanks in it. Joshua was melting down a bit as we got there, I think he needed something to eat but he recovered after having a babychino (warm milk and chocolate), half a chocolate éclair (I got the other half) and a stern word from his Mummy about his behaviour.
He watched Madagascar (the cartoon) when we got home and Deanne and I did some housework and then she made a roast and slice for tea.
No particular plans for tomorrow yet.
That’s A Big Gun!
Kind of the last day of Joshua’s holiday today as he’s at daycare tomorrow. So I gave him the choice of what to do for the day.
We started off reading some books in bed, then playing with his car ramp and some wool, which he usually uses to make bead necklaces and bracelets with. He wrapped the wool around the ramp and then pushed some of the cars down it. This kept him amused for a while. Then it was time for a snack so he watched a bit of TV and ate some fruit and a yoghurt.
We got washed and dressed and then spent some time playing with the tablet which lasted us until close to lunch time.
After lunch he wanted to take his scooter to Bibra Lake park, so we headed out at around one-ish and started scootering! At first he only wanted to go to the local playground, but then decided to head on to the medium one, which is quite a way away. The picture is from where he told me he was too tired and had to take a break from scooting and have a lie down on the grass, after which we ran around there for a while. After the rest stop we drove on to the playground and played there for about twenty minutes, then he asked if it was okay to go to the big playground, a little further around the lake. So we headed on.
It was there that we bumped into a couple of the kids (one of which is called Joshua) and their mum from the pre-primary class next to Joshua’s at kindy, so she and I had a chat while Josh climbed all the way up to the top and slid down a number of times, after which he insisted that I join him.
We were more than half way round the lake at this point, so we struck on towards home, which meant that by the time we finished we had circumnavigated the entire 5.954 KM circumference of the lake. I was tired, I hate to think how the poor boy felt, although it wasn’t hard to tell because as soon as we got home he lay on the sofa, asked for Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs and just crashed there until tea was ready.
We had garlic bread with a lasagne Deanne made last weekend and froze. It was very nice.
As I say, tomorrow is daycare and I have a few things to do. I’ll try and Skype you some time soon.
