Before breakfast the boys playing with a makeshift car ramp - a long piece of cardboard balanced on a couple of foot stools - and zooming the cars, trains and trucks down it. They're having a great time. Isn't it nice how simple things give so much pleasure!
When I hang out the washing, they blow bubbles and ride around the balcony racing each other.
Back inside JJ asks if we can play Hide and Seek. Hide and Seek is currently a real favourite. It's hilarious to play it with them as they always hide in the same place - in our bed under the covers! When I hide, I like to find good places to hide and take a little rest while they find me!
We make some paper aeroplanes and they fly incredibly well - probably the best planes I've ever made, and it was so easy! Here's a copy of the instructions.
JJ can fly his really accurately. He chooses the number 3 to go on his plane, and SamSam has number 1. They are a definite hit. They find they can put little figurines inside the planes and fly them too!
We're getting peckish and decide a train trip into the city would be great. The boys love taking the train. JJ watches out the window as we pass by the stations, and reads out the station names as we go by.

We hop out of the train and get to one of our favourite restaurants. The boys are hungry and eat really well, we have fried rice noodles with beef, and rice with BBQ pork and tofu. When the bill comes, Daddy explains to JJ how much the meal costs and how we work to get money to pay for the meal. JJ just wants to pocket the money and put it in his piggy bank!
We take the boys for a little run around outside the state library where people are grouped together having lunch and soaking up the lovely weather. It's a nice little green spot in the city to chillax.

We get home and the boys go straight to bed for their afternoon nap. It's been a lovely day!
In the evening we read 'Stuck in the Mud' a Thomas the Tank Engine early readers book, and 'My Little K Book', followed by devotions. Tonight's devotion is about quiet places, and that it's good to find a quiet place to spend time with God.
Good night sweethearts!
