barefoot bowls.

Last weekend we celebrated Thomas' 40th birthday with a big party at a chic lounge bar on Saturday night and a good ol' fashion game of barefoot lawn bowls on Sunday afternoon!

After a late night celebrating with friends the evening before, an afternoon game of barefoot lawn bowls was just everyone needed.

So at 1pm on Sunday afternoon we met up with Tom, Nerissa and Nerissa's family for a few hours on the green :)

I am not sure of the exact history behind this game, but there are "bowls clubs" all over Australia!

Lawn bowls is traditionally known as an older person's game so I thought it was very fitting that Nerissa planned to play a few games on Thomas' actual 40th birthday. You know, just to make sure we were getting him familiar with his future as a 40 something :)

The object of the game- to get your teams ball closest to the white ball at the other end of the green.

sights and sounds of canberra.

Last week I flew down to Canberra for a work trip and was lucky enough to get a chance to visit a whole range of popular tourists attractions as well. Here are a few of the place I saw via my iphone camera.

High Court of Australia.



Some of our group. Apparently everyone in Canberra wears black in the winter. If only my red coat still fit over my pregnant body!


Australian War Memorial.





Australian Institute of Sport.

We were in a conference most of this visit so I didn't get a change to take any pictures, but it was a pretty cool place.

Australian National Botanic Gardens





Australian National University

Again, no pictures from here but it is a big university in Canberra.







And a scenic view from the bus...


And what else happened while I was in Canberra? Well, I turned 6 months pregnant :)

express yourself.

Remember the old Nokia phone covers where you could switch them out every day of the week? Well now you can do the same with your iphone but on the cheap by making them yourself!
