Another active at home weekend. Early morning Saturday meant that we had skatebowl to ourselves again. Soccer was cancelled because of wet grounds so we had to make do with another family training session. Finn did some more skills work on the Wii - it all counts.
Finn updated our fire evacuation plan - always a useful thing to do.

Leavin' on a jet plane

Saturday flew by in a blur as I tried to get ready for my work trip. Mark ran interference so I could concentrate but I really missed the time I would usually spend with the two of them.

Sunday we hit the skatebowl early for a bit of a spin before the big kids arrived - technique improving all the time.

The afternoon was spent in airports and planes until I reached Adelaide. It was a beautiful city spread out in front of my hotel room. I would have loved to have had time to explore more but it was a hectic week mostly spent inside the hotel - ah well, maybe next time ...

MONA and more

Sam and Finn spent a happy few hours together swapping from one activity to the next on Saturday.

Sunday saw Mark head to the lakes for some casting practice - a calm, still day not perfect for fishing. After waving Dad off Finn and I headed off to MONA for Finn's first visit. He LOVED it. His favourite pieces were Babylonia, Artifact and Zizi, but they were closely followed by so many others. While waiting to see Pausiris he was looking at Snake and said "You know, I'm not much for art but that is pretty good" :-) It was so great sharing the experience with him - it's now his favourite museum - of course.

We left after a couple of hours and grabbed a few extra things to add to our food stash and headed for the park. Finn read in the shade while I took photos of him reading in the shade.

I had to stop into work for a couple of files and Finn made the fantastic suggestion that we go to Mures for icecream. It was just a lovely day spent with my boy. One to remember.
