Happy Easter

Happy Easter everyone. I hope you all enjoy the long weekend. What are your plans?  
We plan on cooking, catching up with friends and family and depending on the weather maybe going on a little day trip somewhere.

Above pic was taken on my iPhone, pictured are my mum's roses. Beautiful aren't they?!

Happy long weekend!

A trip to the zoo

On Teddy's actual birthday, we decided to take him to the zoo. Polo took the day off work and it had been a long time since we'd both 
visited. I actually can't remember the last time I went - it was that long ago. Teddy seemed to enjoy it, he really liked the monkeys, 
birds, elephants and giraffe. He seemed generally interested and totally in awe of the animals which was very sweet to witness.

I enjoyed the visit too, but I must say I have mixed emotions about the zoo. It's wonderful seeing animals up close and I do understand 
that zoos are about conservation, Sydney Taronga Zoo is known to be one of the best, but it is a little sad seeing wild animals 

I've got a few more photos to share, but they're on a film I'm yet to get developed - still a few frames left to shoot. 
Gosh i'm slow these days.

A rainy day walk

One rainy Saturday Maria and I met for brunch and then took a walk around the local neighbourhoods. It was a lovely morning and I 
really like the photos I took. We hope to do these walks with our cameras more regularly. You can see Maria's photos here.

A special place

Wylie's Baths, is a special place in Sydney (well I think it is). I'd say it's a must visit if you live or ever visit Sydney. The Baths were first established in 1907 by a champion long distance and underwater swimmer. To read more about the history click here.

Happy new week friends!

Our favourite cake

At least once a month we bake a cake. Polo often bakes. I'm lucky he likes cooking so much. One of our favourite cakes to bake is the Rose Bakery pistachio cake. It is so lovely, moist and utterly delicious. I remember the first time that Maria made it for us, I couldn't stop thinking about it a week later. Now, that's the sign of a good cake.

More from the beach

Hi! I have a feeling you may be sick of my beach photos? I'm sorry if you are. Weekends in Sydney are pretty simple and when the 
weather is good, we head to the beach. We swim about 6 months of the year and also visit in the cooler months.. Hence all the beach photos.

I'm also finding since having Teddy, I'm not taking as many photos. It seems I don't always have a hand free, oh and I take photos of him, but you don't want to see all of those.

You can follow me on Instagram, to see a bit more of a range of photos if you like (warning you will still see beach and Theodore photos on instagram too).

Out of our window

One of Theodore's favourite things to do is to look out the window. He points and exclaims when he sees a bird or hears one. 
Luckily there is a lot of bird life where we live.
