One of my mates from work just returned from the states and he was lucky enough to pick up an iPod Touch. This thing is sweet as! I just had to get a picture of me holding it for bragging rights.

No more outdoor advertisments

This story from Boing Boing. Wouldn't it be cool/weird if all the outdoor adverts disappeared!

"Back in December, 2006, the mayor of the 11-million-person Brazilian city of Sao Paulo banned all outdoor billboard advertising, citing advertisers' unwillingness to comply with the city's rules on what sort of billboards can be placed where. Now the rule is in effect, and Flickr user Tony de Marco has documented the eerie sight of a city stripped bare of commercial visuals."

Its like a set from a dark futurist sci-fi flick.

Trip to Queensland

We returned from a short break on Monday morning from Queensland. It had been ages since we visited Aunty Ang.

2294

It was only four days, but we managed to cram heaps of stuff in. On Thursday we did surfers, hung out at the beach for a while and then went up Q1. The view is awesome from the top.

2322

Then on Friday, Movieworld. Dragged the kids on heaps of rides. Superman Escape was by far the coolest.

2346

Saturday time to hop in the car and head back into NSW to Byron Bay. Unfortunately the weather wasn't very nice but the kids still managed to have a swim. Aunty Ang took her surfboard with, and told us that she wasn't very good, she lied. She was great and didn't get dumped once. Then it started to rain :( We headed to the pub and had a great lunch.

After all of that on Sunday we just relaxed. We then got up early Monday and I had to go back to work :(

A weekend away

2238 Its been ages since we visited Trudy's parents caravan in Myola
so early (6am!!) Saturday morning we all piled into the car and headed off.

We crammed a full weeks worth of holidays into two days. We spend some time at the beach, building castles and kickin the footy about. (This kids swam, it was freezing but they insisted)

2229 Then a swim and a spot of tennis. (Trudy hadn't forgotten any of her tennis skill of course!)

My highlight was hand feeding the Rainbow Lorikeet's such a cool looking bird. The caravan park is swarming with them and if you are patient enough they will feed from your hand. Everyone had a go!

2259 2271 2241

On Sunday we headed home, stopping off at Kiama for lunch and lucky for us the monthly Kiama Seaside Markets were on. Heaps of things to look at and rides for the kids to keep them happy. After lunch we stopped of at the blowhole. Unfortunately it wasn't going too well on Sunday :(

Just as we where leaving a massive military aircraft took a sweeping pass of Kiama. Trudy grabbed the camera and managed to get one hurried shot off before it had passed.

2289

Back home late Sunday afternoon and everyone in bed and asleep by 8.30pm. What a tops weekend!

More Matt Birthday Pictures

2205

On the weekend we had a few of Matt's mates come over and have a bit of a party. We had a nice lunch at the club and then some fun in the games room after. (Way too much DDR)

After all that fun we headed home for a some singing and some doughnut cake.

Three weeks and then we have to do it all over again for Harrison! :)

Happy Birthday Matthew!

On Monday Matthew turned Seven! He was lucky enough to get a Nintendo DS and some games (as well as a Spidersapien, some clothes and a few other things)

2172

He had a massive day and he didn't fight that much with his brother. (Only one month to go Harrison!) At the end of the day they both fell asleep in the same bed. In the future I am sure they will both be impressed that Mum and Dad took lots of photos like this...

Happy Birthday Dude!
