What we’ve been up to October edition

I think we’re over due for an update/photo filled post. So here’s what we’ve been up to this October!

We went to the Perth Royal Show to see what all the fuss was about. We had a fabulous day, it wasn’t too hot or crowded!

We had to visit the mining pavilion…

Daddy showing Eden the ropes

Tim LOVED this creature

feeding the lambs

She prefers eating whole carrots


We watched these cuties for a while.

As you can see we focused on the animal activities and did the Yellow Brick Road Show bag…we avoided the rides because we thought $6 a pop was extremely expensive, and not worth it. Eden loves animals and it was a fabulous family day out!

Tim went on a canoe trip with some guys from our church. We have a water proof camera (up to 10m) so he brought it along!

The Dwellingup River (pronounced ‘dwelling up’)

A couple of friends in their “canoe” – these plastic monstrosities are made to withstand a beating

Very coolly-eroded rocks around one of the sets of rapids (the river was relatively low)

We celebrated Canadian Thanksgiving with some of Tim’s colleagues.

Table set for Thanksgiving Dinner

Bon Appetit!

We painted with mulberries (before we knew they were edible)!

Using natural paint

We had family photos taken by Tiny Feet Photography (we don’t have the high res ones yet but you can see some on facebook).

We picnicked on the South Perth Foreshore.

Pre-supper pancake waiting for Daddy.

Kate also ate before Tim arrived, Tim’s office is one of the large buildings in the background.

Keeping an eye on the gull

Straight to the river to dip their toes in when Daddy got off the ferry.  When Tim got out Eden exclaimed “Daddy work on that boat!” – so now Eden thinks he’s a sailor, or a ferry captain.

Testing the water

The wind was a bit chilly after supper but Kate was still smiling as usual.

Post supper beach time.

  1. TOO CUTE!! Thank you so much for this update. The pictures are so great. I love the last one of Kate. Also painting with mulberries is such a cool idea. And I love Eden’s brown dress.

  2. What a great album of your family events; loved all of them (just had to save some of our beautiful granddaughters)!! Thanksgiving dinner looked so delicious; I noticed Tim had dibs on a turkey leg 🙂 Great plates too – loved the Canadian touch!
