Last night Aaron headed off to Sydney for the weekend with the youth from church. It seems like he's had more trips to the mainland this year than he has in the past 10 years! I knew it was going to be a very long weekend if we stayed home the whole the time, so today we decided to get out for a few hours. Noah's leg is still sore, but he's tolerating sitting up in his wheelchair a lot more which has been good.
We definitely can't complain that we are getting no rain anymore. It seems like all it has done lately is rain. I heard that the Trevallyn Dam would be in full force today which meant that the Gorge would be in flood, so we thought we would go and check it out.
I didn't expect quite so many people to be doing the same thing - there were cars and people everywhere from Kings Bridge, at the Gorge and at Trevallyn Dam. There was a huge traffic line up to get into the Dam and a big wait to get out as well. The boys thought it was very exciting. Kobe couldn't take his eyes off the water.
Jay loved it, but Harri said it was scary.
I promised the boys if they helped me clean the house this morning that I would take them to the Aquatic Centre after we went to see the floods. I've never seen them clean up so fast! Kobe used to freak out every time the bucket would tip, but now he absolutly loves it! He has turned into a real water baby.
He even puts his face in the water and blows bubbles and doesn't mind at all when I go under the water with him (can you tell he's getting more teeth!? aargh!)
He loved playing in the water and would go anywhere that was blowing bubbles and would just sit and play for ages.
It was a fun way to fill in an afternoon.
I felt bad for Noah sitting in the heat for so long, but he didn't seem to mind at all and was so awake and alert and was really noticing all the sounds going on around him.
Hopefully it won't be too long and he will be able to get back in the water again too.
