This week, we have been doing A LOT of swimming at the public pool. It is heated and the learning pool is undercover but also outdoor. Isla learnt to swim! She can swim without any floats and is learning to hold her breath for a long time and kick really well. We are really proud of her learning to swim on Tuesday. We celebrated by spending lots of time at the beach looking at crabs! Isla, Evie and I also had a wander around our local shopping village and found a brilliant book shop that holds events with famous authors, for example the author of the Rosie Project books. We also found a great newsagents that sells lots of our favourite children's magazines.
Here are some of the crabs:

We went to our first Aussie birthday party. There was a jumping pillow, and a climbing wall:
