He was woken by 2 little children exciting as anything to be giving their daddy presents... William was so excited that he had let one cat out of the bag on Thursday. Still, Russ acted as surprised as if he didn't know.
We dined at the Allroy Tavern for lunch which was very yummy, and then went on the search for a certain pair of shoes that Russ has been wanting for quiet some time, and despite all efforts we came home empty handed.
The disappointment was short lived when we put as many candles as we could fit on the cake and sung Happy Birthday in some kind of tuneless manner and tucked into one of Woolies finest Chocolate Mud Cakes.
Caitlin had decided that she was cooking dinner and she put a lot of thought into what we should have. Corn & Bacon Pizza, followed by Chocolate Sundaes. Caitlin did an awesome job and dinner was really yummy. I think she can cook for us again anytime!
It's a beautiful day, the sun is shining, and the season is right for the annual athletics carnival. All the kids are out in their sports house colours. Caitlin being yellow for Newcombe.
It starts with the 90mtr age race. Caitlin lines up, takes her mark, and when she does cross the line, she gets a ribbon for having a go. Good on you honey!
Then it's time for the much anticipated novelty events. Bring on the sack race, the egg & spoon race, the relays and tunnel ball. I was a very proud mummy when she crossed the line first in the egg & spoon event. Caitlin was focused, concentrated, and walked like an Olympic demand! You go girl!
Apparently though, the best thing about Athletics Carnival day is not the race, the novelty events, or the ribbons... it's getting to go home early with your mum!

Not normally an autograph chaser, but I did score one from Matt Preston of Master Chef fame. I also bailed up Barry Hall as Caitlin thinks he's the best, and last but not least Brett Kirk was right there so I just had to get his too!
~ Father's Day weekend actually saw Russ head to Melbourne for Hollywood's 50th birthday bash. He came home on Sunday afternoon a simple shell... when are these boys going to learn they aren't as young as they used to be and staying out til 4am (and then having to fly home) isn't as attractive as it used to be lol.
