Queens Birthday Weekend

We went down to Pt Lonsdale for the Queen's birthday long weekend. When we got down there we found that the fence was currently pulled down to be replaced. It was supposed to be finished so we had to leave Harry in the shed overnight. Luckily I'd planned to go back home with Hayley for Alpha and Kids Church on Saturday night so I took Harry back with me. We stayed the night, fed him in the morning and then went back down again. Hayley had a great time Saturday night, it was her birthday celebration and she got them to do the Happy birthday song in chipmunk ... apparently it was "hilarious". We had organised for the twins to go too and without any preplanning the fourth girl from their cabin on camp also turned up ... she normally goes to 11AM. So the four of them got to catch up and also saw Jenny who used to run after school care at school and one of their cabin leaders was also their ... the excitement levels escalated.

The rest of the weekend was taken up with plenty of relaxing. We went for a walk to the pier ...
