A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2015.

Sofia & Otto: climbing

There have been a couple of beautiful sunny days this week, so we have been making the most of it and getting out and about.

On Tuesday we headed to a new-to-us playground in Lindisfarne. The highlight was a huge climbing frame with a chute slide, buzzing with a heap of kids (it is school holidays here). Sofia and Otto tackled it head on and quickly scampered up the ropes to a respectable height where they had a breather and I took these snaps on my phone.

A few minutes later there were tears all around as Sofia took off up the tower and then lost her footing and bounced on her face on the ropes! I talked her down and gave her a cuddle, but then Otto got stuck and also needed to be rescued. It is a very tall structure and a bit tricky for the little ones (more suited to bigger kids), but I think we'll be back sooner rather than later. Practice makes perfect!

I didn't get a wide shot of the tower, but this photo from Pears and Pips shows the scale. 

We were also lucky enough to have a visit from my sister Sally this week, so a bonus Aunty photo. This was taken on Coningham Beach where we soaked up some sunshine on Thursday.
