Saturday was a day filled with excited six year olds, birthday cake and bursting balloons. Very, very good fun but Sunday needed to be a bit peaceful. A play and picnic in the park. Our favourite park.

My view.

Henry: "Don't step in the glass, Mum."

Me: "How did you get to be so grown up? Or so casually inner-city?"

Henry: "Huh?"

Come on scooter boy. I'll take you.

His father does his best concentrating with tongue out too. Ah, genetics.

She has totally forgotten she's wearing her helmet.

There's talk of a storm. Henry is tuned into Adam's excitement about some extreme weather conditions. Tilly, not so much.

As I took this photo the first drops came down. This is Sydney rain. You get very wet, very quickly.

Forget the baby who is being rained on for the first time, I try to get my beloved camera under my t-shirt. Can't. No room with all those boobs. Right. Hightailing it back to the car, wearing baby, protecting camera, trailing small people and carrying scooter and bikes.

Ad carried the coffee and didn't spill a drop, wonderful man.

Car picnic.

Perfect.

Were the reggae guys there? They give it such a good vibe, underneath the smoke stacks!

Love the duck pond – although the massive eels are terrifying and remind me of the screeching eels in Princess Bride. Ugh.
