Autumn has arrived! It is a Thursday again, another mummy and Eskil day. First we dropped Scott off at work, then we headed to Lenah Valley for some geocache maintenance.
We found another cache, then as we were driving off Eskil said he needed to pee. Oh well – last weekend he learned about having a wee while out bushwalking, so no worries. This was my view while he was otherwise occupied.
Next we headed to the location of another geocache, which we didn’t find. However it was at a playground, so we had a bit of fun going up and down the slide.
I’ve wanted to see the new Tasman Bridge Disaster sculpture – plus I needed to visit it for information for a puzzle / multicache hybrid, so we have a quick trip over the bridge.
Our next stop was at the cache near home. They serve Jaffas with coffees. I hate Jaffas, but Eskil adores them. Some of the wait staff already know I like to get 2 Jaffas with my coffee. Eskil calls them ‘red bitings’.
Having woken up at 6:30, Eskil was already yawning. So I let him watch Toy Story 2 before having a nap.
I was absolutely exhausted, so when Eskil went down for his nap, I did as well. Lottie thought she’d join me. (Well, to be honest, Lottie was already napping before Eskil!)
We have no idea why Eskil calls this ‘scary baby’, but he does!
Before going for a late afternoon walk, we headed to the grocer for dinner ingredients.
On Thursday afternoons, Eskil and I have been walking to meet Scott as he comes home from work. It’s not easy as Eskil’s only learning how to be civilised off lead; Lottie is there as an example. After the decent length bushwalk he did Monday (that blog post is still to come!), I thought we’d leave earlier so we could walk longer before meeting up with Scott. As it happened we missed Scott – he wasn’t expecting us to come so far and had deviated from our usual route. It all came right in the end.
Walking home with daddy. Or, well, outsourcing the walking part.
Eskil loves checking the post and deciding who he thinks should get what envelope.
