We’re in the middle of the Spring school holidays here in Perth and it’s great to chill out with no stress in the mornings and no after school activities. Mike had a day off last week and we took the kids to The Royal Show. It was a glorious sunny day and we spent over six hours there and had a great time! Kids came home very tired but happy with a show-bag each.
I have done my first wedding with Fine-Line Photography for the season and I’m looking forward to many more in the next few months. Unfortunately it started to rain during the outdoor ceremony but the sun came out just in time for the formal photo shoot afterwards. The light was so pretty as the sun came out from behind the clouds shining on the bride and her sparkling white dress in the middle of the green lush vineyard! Magic….
On Sunday morning at 6.15am we all jumped into our car and drove to Champion Lakes in Armadale for Nathan’s first Duathlon! He had to run 500m, cycle 2km and finish off with a 250m sprint to the finishing line where he received his medal! He did so well and we are so proud of him for completing the race and also raising money for Cayla and other kids with Cerebral Palsy! Nathan thought the bike ride was quite nice but that the running was hard work – hahaha! Very funny and I was happy that my bike riding husband heard him say it too. ;) My training is still going well and it’s finally light when I drive to the interval sessions at 5.40am in the morning. I’m currently running about 70km/week including the 30km long slow run on Sunday morning. This will increase in the next couple of months as I start building towards the 6inch trail marathon (46km) in December. Just a tad nervous but have read somewhere that a challenge is not a proper one unless it scares you so there we go..!
Yesterday we took Cayla to Princess Margaret Hospital (PMH) for her 6- monthly Botox injections. This was the first time she had it done at PMH and it has only taken us about 2,5 years to get to the top of the waiting list. As some of you may remember Cayla fell into our coffee table about 18 months ago and knocked one of her front teeth… In the beginning of the year the dentist explained that the tooth had died and needed to be removed :( Not great but nothing we could do so it was decided to take it out at the same time as her botox at PMH so that is what happened yesterday. Botox in her left leg and tooth extraction. All went well and very fast, the staff at PMH are so nice and very experienced. Cayla woke up fine and had some toast and apple juice before we were good to go home. When we came home Cayla vomited all over the floor, had a shower, some panodil, soft pasta for dinner and then bed. The tooth fairy came for a visit and left a $2 coin under Cayla’s pillow. I though that she would look really weird without her tooth but she looks fine and still very cute!
