The Boot

We spent saturday at the farm of Allan's niece and her husbands family at their annual cricket game called "the boot". Well.. the prize is "the boot"! It was the 8th time it was held and our 4th time we attended. It was Allan's first time to play cricket there. It was so much fun. Our friends Ash and Tracy came along with their son Jackson. We had a fantastic day.

Ruby and Jackson found this lovely girl, Georgia, who looked after them almost the entire day! She was so good with them! Every now and them they came over for a drink or some food but the rest of the day they just played and played.

Lucy had a ball with all the other kids and all the dogs that were there. She had such a good time that she didn't even had a sleep!!

Allan didn't get any runs BUT he did get a wicket (second ball)!!!! He was a bit disappointed that he didn't get any runs but he had a great time playing. Ash played as well, he was opener. The first time he only had 3 runs but because he had less that 10 and the other guys were out he got another shot at batting and got some more runs then. I tried to take some photo's of them batting and bowling but it didn't really work that well with my digi camera. I really would love a digital SLR!!!

We had lots of yummy food and drinks and we're totally exhausted after spending the entire day outside and relaxing (well us girls anyway..)
Lucy fell asleep as soon as we put her in her car seat. Both girls were so good all day!!

Yesterday I went over to scrap at Lucrecia but we ended up just chatting all night. Tomorrow we go out for the day to Goulburn. Should be good fun!

I'll be teaching my first class at Scrap the Lot on Wednesday afternoon. The class is fully booked with kiddies, looking forward to it!!

Here are some more photo's taken at "the Boot". I just love the farm and all the beautiful surroundings.
