Fish, Fire, Jump

Hello! Today the blog post is written by Isla and Evie.

Evie went fishing and caught a diamond fish, a toadfish, and a bream.

Evie saw Peppa Pig:

Thanks for the sticker book Granny:

Here is the photo for Evie's swimming lessons. She was awarded swimmer of the month for her kicking and beautiful listening in lessons.

Evie went to the park on Friday and spent ages on the blue slides.

She cycled along by the river to the Big Pelican.

I rode on my bike to the beach. We played tag. It was awesome playing at the beach!

There was a bushfire near our house. It made me feel anxious. We went to look at it and the fire was on a tree very close to someone's house.

On Sunday, we went to Noosa North Shore and we  also saw some horses having fun in the sea.

We bounced up and down on a jumping pillow. It was lots of fun!

Evie and I made lots of friends at the jumping pillow. They could do rollypollies and cartwheels on the jumping pillow and one was called Isla. Evie and I think that one of the babies was called Glincy.

On the way home from Noosa North Shore we went to an art studio. Most of the pictures were of people and I didn't like them too much. 
I went to my friends playdate. The friends there were called E, S, T, V, D, I and L. We played a game called Police Tag.
At last we were eating some beautiful food from KFC.

Moreton Island

At the beginning of July we went on holiday to Moreton Island. I thought you might like to see some photos of our trip.

It is a sand island, a bit like Fraser Island, but much smaller. It lies in Moreton Bay, near to Brisbane. We got up while it was still dark, and drove to Brisbane docks to catch the ferry across to the island. During the crossing, a pod of energetic dolphins jumped about in the wake of the ferry.

We picked a spot for our tent overlooking the sea. From our tent we could see turtles and dugongs in the shallow water. There was a creek along the beach where Isla and Evie liked to go and paddle.

At the top of Moreton Island is the Cape Moreton lighthouse, which was a great spot to view humpback whales and turtles:

Driving around the island we found a freshwater lake called the Blue Lagoon, and intertidal flats where we found Soldier crabs and Green Paddle Worms:

There are large dunes, like a desert, which Isla and Evie sand boarded down:

There were many shipwrecks around the island:

Camping on Moreton was amazing, despite some heavy rain one evening. I think we'll be going back!

At the end of our holiday we had a night at the Tangalooma Resort. It was once used as a spooky set for a Scooby Doo film in 2002. We liked walking along the pier, going on a glass-bottom boat to feed fish at the shipwrecks, and feeding Rani the dolphin in the evening.

Bye bye Moreton Island!

Thanks for reading!

Up in the trees

Isla and Evie have spent a lot of time climbing trees the last couple of weeks! We've also been going to birthday parties and cycling about. 

There was a sponsored event at school, called the Jogathon to raise money for a new basketball court. All the children had to run some laps and the parents could join in too. Isla really enjoyed it, although it was a hot day at 26 degrees so everyone had hot red faces after all the running about. 

Here are some photos of other things we've been doing:
