Maddi loves going really high on the swing. She is such a dare devil and the higher the better. She loves Big Alex to (safely) throw her up in the air. She calls it "up in the sky" and can't get enough of it.
Today was our third trip to the beach. We had the company of Moppy and Nessy. Poppy had a truck delivery to make up this way, so Liz and Ness came along for a vist. We spent the afternoon at the beach. The sand was so hot that you couldn't stand on it and we had to run into the water just to prevent our feet from burning. The water was just perfect. It was just the right temperature to cool you down, while not being too cold. We went in the water several times. Alex and Kevin knocked off work at 4 and joined us for a swim. It was lovely to have a decent swim as there were so many people to look after the kids in the water.

After our swim we headed out for tea to our local hotel for a counter meal. Four Essendon Football Club "players" (Used loosly - as they really suck) were there for a football function. Some of Alex's work colleagues are big Essendon supporters and were there also. I don't think they were too impressed that Alex and Kevin showed up there with Hawks t-shirts on! (Alex says that they have to understand that they are in HAWK COUNTRY) Kevin, Liz and Ness left not long after tea. It was great to see them, even if it was for an afternoon.
I took this photo this morning of the kids. Maddi keeps asking to hold "Baby Alex" . He's not really a baby anymore, and is catching Maddi in size (only 2kg between them)! The other day Maddi was holding Alex's hand while they were in the pram. Alex's hands and feet are so big and there is not much difference in their hand size at all. Maddi has a fixation for putting stickers on everything at the moment and stuck some stickers on Alex's forehead. I love moments like this when they have fun together and get along. I think it's every mother's dream!
