Mac, Gabriella, Darcy and Charlie ...

And the day was July 16th, the gang with Carly ...

Today was a sweet day with Gabriella and Mac, especially playing in the horse coral .. .. many different games were played, some together and some not!

Gabriella made up a game where Mac was the cook and she was 'the maker'.

"Mat you be da toot, and I'll be the maker and I'm donna mate some tanberry serio for us."

They also played in their cars and Gabriella took us to the gym!

... then ... as we were all playing and running around, Mac just quietly started moving around the drums. At first I thought he was just enjoying the rolling action of them, but to my amazement, I got to see, he was strategically placing them so they formed a very uniform shape. This quite  blew me away as Mac for those of you who don't know is 15 months old, in this life time anyway.
Once he had finished, he stood back, quietly observed his accomplished mission, and then of he went to the next game, no fuss made.

Take a peek at the slide show or photos to see this ...

... ... we move on to July 23rd ..

Well welcome back Darcy and Charlie, how wonderful to have four in the group again!

We had a day full of imagination brought in by Darcy, it was so much fun!

We went around the farm going down secret paths, under low bridges with a fence in the middle that we had to use our magical powers and special keys to unlock these fences!

...we saw ducks in the ocean and made a cake with the lemons.

Darcy told me how to make it...
" You put a funny face at the top, a funny face at the bottom and a funny face in the middle, and that's how you make it."

Charlie said : "You could put free or four or forty-seven funny faces on... ...ha ha ha ha ha," laughing at his own sense of humour.

... ...and by the way, we did see some animals today though mainly played great games!

The last game we played after playing hide and seek for ages, was a game Darcy and Charlie were knights, Gabriella was a pirate and Mac was.. .. ..a baby.. ..Nothing like blending imaginations to come up with a mix.

It was a great day over all. I look forward to this group becoming closer as the weeks go on and they all get to know one another more and more!
