John and Varsha came down for the day. Caroline and Laxmi were sick and stayed in Mt Molloy. Cosmo wanted to cuddle Varsha a lot. John bought Sushi for lunch. We walked to the DVD Store and watched the new LEGO movie. The babies Jasmine and Sugar came too.


We started the day with Mr Bean for breakfast.  A quiet home day with favourite movies and iPad apps. Cosmo is on the hunt for the missing girl in Clumsy Ninja and Thiango is ecstatic to have her SIMS married.

In the afternoon we all went to the theatre for training - Thiango joined in the Pranayama exercises - and bought sushi for dinner on the way home.

G&G came back for their last night from Port Douglas. There was a game of UNO and then Thiango and Cat took Shirley to the dress shop in Edge Hill. We had take away from the Lao restaurant in Edge hill for dinner.

We had pancakes for breakfast and took some photos - Thiango wanted Grandmother to wear her new dress and Cat and Thiango wore their birthday dresses.

After a long goodbye to G&G it was time for Karate. In the evening we watched Mr Bean and Maxwell Smart with Willem. We thought the one where Mr Bean was caught outside his locked motel room without any clothes was the funniest.


Off to Port Douglas to meet G&G. We visited the Wildlife Habitat and the beach and caught up with the Millers and the Crouchers before heading home.


More goodbyes!


Mimi, Thiango and Cosmo set up a restaurant on the deck and baked sugar cookies to serve the guests - including a pirate and a magician.

After the restaurant, Thiango and Cosmo helped Willem set up for a big CfAT meeting.

There was a big swim, a viewing of Teen Beach Movie and some more hide-n-seek.


After a long swim Mimi painted Thiango, Thiango painted Mimi and Mimi and Thiango painted Cosmo.


Grampy and Grandmother left for Port Douglas and Grandmother passed on a cute little teddy bear family from Hazel.

Afterwards we straightened up and prepped for the arrival of Mavis, Gina, Guy, Mimi and Linda.

We walked to the Gardens to play tiggy, hide-n-seek and Avatar.


Grampy and Grandmother joined us for a skateboarding workshop on the Esplanade with the homeschoolers. Then we headed off to Rusty’s for lunch and a few groceries.

After a rest we enjoyed some bubbles and a BBQ feast before Cosmo and Thiango put on a fabulous show - magic tricks and dancing and a wonderful song by Thiango about G&G which she played on the guitar.


The birthday toys are still providing lots of fun - Thiango built a luxury ship for Jake before breakfast.

There were a few magic tricks before we set off for muddies where Grandmother and Grampy enjoyed the cool, shadey park and Cosmo and Thiango played on everything.

It was hot once we got home and everyone took a rest after a quick stop at the DVD store.

We had quail egg soup for dinner and watched Mr Magorium’s Wonder Emporium. Thiango wanted to read some of Go Dog Go to us and then we settled in for Harry Potter.
