Art on our Streets...

Sometimes, you don't have to go far or even pay lots of money to visit art galleries.
 Just have a stroll in your city and you will discover a whole new world. 
Can't wait for my family to visit so I can show them what I mean.

Scitech Video:

Skye at Scitech:

Scitech is an amazing place, it encourages kids to experience how life really works through play and scientific activities. Between the hot air balloon, the robotic talking head and the rescue team, Skye fell in love with the rescue raft and the pretend ocean. There even was a helicopter with a flight simulator over the city. Great place to spend the day and learn while having lots of fun!

Happy Valentine's Day:

Michael surprised me with this magnificent flower bouquet, filled with different colours. 
Skye and I surprised him with this home made chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting...Yummy!
 Too bad you can't reach through your computer screen to have a taste. 
But the cake is too big and it was calling me again the next day through the fridge door, I had to throw the freezer which is harder to reach...for now.
Happy Valentine's Day!!!

Bullet and Skye II:

Bullet and Skye

This is the river: we are not brave enough to venture in the open sea. We started calling it Bullet beach after the dog. This is where we spend our weekends, when it is windy. Michael and I take turns kitesurfing and windsurfing. One of us would be on the water and the other one is playing with Skye.
Skye made friends with Bullet who adopts anyone who is willing to throw him a stick. He would go for hours. You don't have a choice, he will bark at you until you play with him. Skye does not mind, she loves it. He is so friendly and he belongs to the windsurf trainer who is always there.

Skye's First day at School:

Skye's first day of school!!! Already! (I sound old!)
It was brilliant!
I had a restless night, nervous about everything, the strangers and the unfamiliar surroundings...And what does she do? She barges in the classroom towards one of the tables, filled with colorful activities and says:
" Mommy, you can go now".
And thank you very much!
I tell myself. That's it? No tears? Not even mommy I will miss you? No, nothing.
I am the one who was a bit tearful during the day. Picked her up that day and she was buzzing with excitement, telling me all about her new teacher and classmates.
Brave child that one!

Skye's First Cinema Show:

 Skye's first cinema outing with her friends was spectacular. She was glued to her seat, eating popcorn. I have not been to the movie theater for ages myself. It was a great experience, she enjoyed it.

Windex magpies

Hilarious! Makes me laugh every time! I am keeping my eyes on the magpies around us!
