Sweet Saraya – The Blog » A mum with a camera, keeping her loved ones in the frame.

And then we snapped – 3/8/ to 16/8

In true Sharyn style, I overcommitted last week, ran out of time, and never got to post my blog. So this week’s blog circle post is a combination of the last two weeks. Apologies for the overshare. We’ll be back to “normal programming” next week.

We’ve had a busy couple of weeks. I had all the kids home sick. One. After. The. Other. It’s always the way, right? We had trips to the movies, to see Guardians of the Galaxy, which, by the way, my kids loved. And so did I. We visited the beach, the park, coffee shop dates, and birthday parties. We played dress ups, and we ate ice-cream. On the deck. In the middle of winter. Because it was a hot day. We even made friends with a kangaroo and a snake (the snake was a 2m, or 7ft, long python. No pics though, as i took them on my iPhone). Both of them literally came to play in our backyard. That’s common when you live on acreage in Australia though.

Enjoy my blog this week, and I look forward to seeing you all again next week.
