It's been a lot wetter than usual for Perth at this time of year, and the temperatures have been a lot lower on average too than they normally would be. Quite all over the place in fact! We were starting to wonder if the typical Western Australia hot, dry weather was actually coming!
But this week it would seem that summer has finally arrived.
- The mercury has soared over 30 degrees (up to 36) Celsius all week.
So what's a family to do but enjoy the offerings of summer...
** Loads of trips to the beach:
|Abbie doing her typical runner... she likes to roam that kid - much to my delight!|
Our trip to the beach today included a random unidentifiable flying object:
It looked like a go-cart/motor driven parachute thing.
And we also got to see a group of dolphins that came to visit us about 15-20 metres or less out from where we were swimming.
I kid you not.
They were SO close to the shore!
Unfortunately no photos - since I was swimming at the time and all...
(lucky they weren't sharks hey!)
And this week we've also been enjoying
** Loads of barbecues...
** Loads of icey poles (ice blocks, ice creams, ice-lollies etc...)
** Loads of water-play...
** & Looooads of relaxed family time together!
But what I'd like to know is, since my children spend nearly the entire time that we home running around with no clothes on, why we are still generating so.much.washing?!
I could do away with that!
Hope you're all having a lovely weekend
