Once I got back from my visit home to Canada, the weather was getting nicer and we decided it was time to get back out there and see some more of Melbourne.

costume? Nope, it's Hannah in her winter pyjamas!
Father's Day was on June 1st, and it was the nicest weather we had in months. So out came the shorts and the gardening gloves.
Some of us got right into the getting dirty part of the day:
Others decided to ease into it!

and brown (yes the socks are an important part of the outfit!)
There were also lots of trees to climb, and trails to follow. And although I didn't get a picture of them, heaps of kangaroos! 15 of them hopped across the road in front of us and I was so surprised I couldn't get my camera out in time!
Some were friendlier than others!
The end of school term brought three days of production. The school only puts together production every other year and the kids have been preparing and rehearsing for this literally all year. Each grade does a musical number professionally choreographed and costumed for them.
The preppies were all cavemen in a rendition of the Flintstones/Walk the Dinosaur, and the grade 3s were genies and astronauts as they brought I Dream of Jeannie/Major Tom to life. As a member of the dance academy Hannah also had a ballet and a jazz number, so she was a tired girl and the end of each performance!
Pictures and video weren't allowed in the theatre so all I got as a shot at home before costumes, but the school did take professional photos and video, so I'll post those when I get them.
This was the first big stage performance for both kids and we were so proud of them. Hannah has never danced a day in her life and did the most amazing job. It was a great way to end the term.
