You get to pick your own so you can wander through and pick out the biggest and reddest. We gave each of the kids a basket to fill and they had a great time running up and down looking for the yummiest strawberries. The weather was a bit cool and windy but they didn't seem to mind.
Later that afternoon Mum gave us a HUGE treat. We got to leave the kids with her while we went to see AUSTRALIA
at the movies. We even left Jonty. It was so funny. Simon went early and got the movie tickets and mandatory lollies. While he was gone I fed Jonty and literally pulled him off right before Simon picked me up, just as the movie started (we didn't mind being a bit late because they always have like 15min of previews anyway). Mum kept our car so she could take our tribe (cos that's what 4 kids feels like now) to Launceston East ward's Christmas Party. (thanks for the link Lisa). We took her car to the movies and put our phones on vibe/silent incase Mum needed me. It was alot of mucking around but I SO needed to do something like that to get some sanity back. The movie was great and Jonty behaved himself (don't know about the other 3), according to chief "baby looker after-a", aka Collette. For proof see here.
One of the Mum's at school whose daughter Alice is in Hallie's class, gave me some beautiful roses from her farm.
Hallie and Oliver love picking flowers for me, but as you can see from this photo below, to them flowers and weeds are one and the same. I don't mind how many weeds they pick for me, I will love them as if they were roses.
