It always happens! Just as the weather in Tassie starts heating up and we start talking about it, it turns freezing again!! Our friend Yvette moved away from Tassie about 5 years ago, and now lives in Queensland with her husband Luke, and two girls - Kelsey and Nakita. Yvette and Luke went to school with us and we have kept in touch ever since.
They are down for three days for a wedding, and Pip had been telling Yvette how nice the weather was! Of course yesterday the weather changed (again!), and now it is freezing and windy. Yvette and the girls arrived at Pip's today for lunch and were going on about how cold it was. Poor Kelsey kept going outside to play and would then come back in within a minute saying 'it's too cold!'.
I love going out to Pip's as her Dad always has new crops in, and always look amazing.
Ben is an amazing cook, and made us the most beautiful lunch. Yvette lives in quite an isolated spot, and said she was looking forward to going out to a nice restaurant for tea, but said she didn't need to after having Ben's lunch!
Yvette and Luke's girls are so lovely. They are so different to look at, and we were laughing saying how it looks like Yvette has adopted the two of them! Their Dad, Luke has the lovely dark skin which Kelsey inherited, and even though Nakita is so fair, she still has beautiful olive skin as well.
Oliver was so excited to have some kids to play with. He kept saying 'come on Kobe!', wanting Kobe to get up and play with him. He didn't seem to realise that he was just a bit too little at the moment to run around with him.
Yvette and the girls were so excited to meet little Matilda. She has changed so much in two weeks.
Oliver was such a great baby and we kept warning them that Matilda may be different, but I think she is even more placid and settled than Oliver was! She didn't even cry the whole time we were there (except when she was hungry) and just sat looking around at everything going on. Pip and Ben are very lucky, and it's nice to see them all so happy.
