Somehow I skipped blogging on Father's Day (maybe we were having too much fun? ;)) so I thought I'd better put up these photos before September passes by!
The children were busy all week making various paintings and drawings and paper craft gifts for Stuart - it took ages for them to present them all and explain them (eg. Elijah made Stu a little fringed "hula skirt" out of paper, complete with an orange crepe paper waste band - now that needed a little explaining!) while I made pancakes for breakfast.
We relaxed in our jarmies for most of the morning....... and also presented Stuart with this book, an absolute treasure of a find in a tiny bookstore in town:
"My Papa is a Pirate"!! Seriously, this picture book was written for and about Stuart!!! There's no doubt! :) It's an excellent book. So multiple readings of that followed, then I chauffeured him and the kids to Hervey Bay where we had an ice-cream and Stu lay on a park-bench relaxing while the kids played in the playground- and I dashed between chatting to him and chasing Will / pushing Eli on the swing / helping Saraya down from the very high climbing cubes, etc. etc.!! All in all a great family day. We all love you so much Stu! Thank you for being such a devoted Papa to our little ones. :)
