We don't often...

... go on a train, despite living very close to a station. Also it might have something to do with the fact that QR charge me $7.80 to travel three stations and back again. But I digress. Today I couldn't face the thought of being at home all morning in fairly unhappy weather, so we went to the park, on the train!

I've borrowed a lens from a friend and thought today would be a good day to try it out. Here are some of my favourite photos from the morning....

The jacaranda trees in Brisbane are truly amazing this year. We have been driving around on jacaranda-spotting excursions (even M now shouts out "jacadanda!") and we discovered the little park we went to this morning because it is right near some spectacular jacaranda trees. It even has one small enough for climbing.

I love graffiti that someone has put an effort into (ie not tags written by a 13 year old with a felt pen and too much time on their hands).

Sugar and Spice and decapitated B@rbie Dolls

I got to have a play with my camera and my very grumpy almost 2 year old this afternoon. It was fun, but I don't think Dr Barbie enjoyed it as much as we did.

Cute isn't she? :)

Last week Mum and Dad were minding 2 of their friends' kids while one of the friends was having a baby so we had a couple of adventures with them. Goma was fun, but super busy and the ibises were very hungry and agressive at the cafe. They had a great sign next to the kids section though....

We went to Mount Glorious on Friday for a bushwalk. It was a beautiful day, and the kids had fun playing with H and S. Here are my older 2 children at their attractive best in the rainforest...

(she was VERY excited to have these ringlets - done with rags the night before old school style)
