Day 365

Sunday 30.12.2012

The boys were so very spoiled this year and were gifted a jumping castle / water slide from their Nanny and Poppy. It’s cool, like really really really awesomely cool. I wish I could go on it… I’m 10kg too heavy. 😦 It has a bouncy part, a dart board, a basket ball ring thing, a water slide, a wading pool, and a water canon.

I usually have a lot of trouble getting Eli to pack away toys during the day… since we got the jumping slide thingo, no problems. It’s brilliant. He was running around like speedy Gonzalez  this morning packing toys away with the promise of a play on the castle.

The boys have been going nuts on it, so much fun!

Only one problem is that Eli really doesn’t like getting wet by the sprayers, so by default, he thinks that he is therefore entitled to be in charge of the water canon. This is the resulting tantrum after Archer takes a turn at the canon.

Just one day to go until the end of this project for the year! My slideshow is sitting ready for the last few images to be inserted. More on this tomorrow. xx

  1. Looks like loads and loads of fun! Poor dear Eli ;( I hope it ended quickly…. I have thoroughly enjoyed looking over your posts and blog over the past year Katie, as another Mum of three boys I have been encouraged, inspired and have been delighted in how you are raising your boys!!! Cheers to you and your family. Have a wonderful last day tomorrow and snap away…. Here’s to a fantastic project and an even better 2013! 😉 – not that I will be taking a photo a day ;/
