MOTAT

So, we went to Motat, thanks in part to Bree, and her mum, who provided us with the free ticket to go. It's a pretty awesome place, though the weather was awful, and Sienna was grumpy, so we didn't see it all. Highlights were the mirromaze, the whisper dishes, the simulator ride, which Maddie declined to ride, but was truly awesome, and the tram ride. Denver watched the driver like a hawk on the return trip, trying to work out how he rang the bell. When we stopped, we asked him, turns out it was with his foot. Then he let Denver and Sienna ring the bell, much to their delight! Here are some pics.

Looks fab and I wouldn't mind having a go on those Whisper dishes. Love the photo of the girls hugging on the tram; my first thought, 'Awwww, I need to have one more baby to even out the numbers'!

The Word Party

Loving words clutch crimson roses,
Rude words sniff and pick their noses,
Sly words come dressed as foxes,
Short words stand on cardboard boxes,
Common words tell jokes and gabble,
Complicated words play Scrabble,
Swear words stamp around and shout,
Hard words stare eachother out,
Foreign words look lost and shrug,
Careless words trip on the rug,
Long words slouch with stooping shoulders,
Code words carry secret folders,
Silly words flick rubber bands,
Hyphenated words hold hands,
Strong words show off, bending metal,
Sweet words call each other 'petal',
Small words yawn and suck their thumbs,
Till at last the morning comes,
Kind words give out farewell posies....
Snap! The dictionary closes.
