  • Barbeque

    Evan broke the barbeque today. Well, sort-of. He broke the handle to it. Naughty boy. No more barbeque for him.

  • Tooth floss

    Evan likes to take tooth floss, stick it between some teeth, and pull it through until it comes out. A bit of a waste, but cute nevertheless.

  • Bedtime

    Evan doesn’t seem to want to sleep at night now. We leave his light on when we put him down, and he’s usually still awake an hour later. I’ve put some toys in his bed with him, and he’s very quiet – almost too quiet.

We saw sheep being sheared, cows being milked, lambs, donkeys, chickens, kunekune and other farm animals. Evan loved petting the lambs (who seemed to […]
