So the question was where to go in Adelaide on a public holiday with kids?
The same place everyone went...... The Big Rocking Horse!
Just in case you don't know what i am talking about this is the Big Rocking Horse.
An Adelaide Icon!
Located 30 minutes out of Adelaide in the town of Gumeracha. Of course if you're not scared of heights you can climb to the top of the horses head. Given that i am 26 weeks pregnant i opted to stay on the ground while hubby took our little rock chick up the horse.
We went with my sister, brother in law and two little rock chick nieces and had a great day. The kids loved climbing the rocking horse, they loved feeding the animals as well but the highlight was the pony ride.
This was Violets first pony ride and although she is three she is quite small so they helmet kept falling off and she was slipping all over the place as her feet couldn't reach the stirps. In saying that i don't think i have ever heard her laugh so much.
So who else remembers Grug books from their childhood?
Today i took my daughter whom is three to see Grug live. We went with three other mums and three kids all about the same age. We sat on the floor right up the front and much to my surprise it was really good. The kids really enjoyed it. They laughed and danced which was great to see and i even got a laugh.
In case you don't remember the story of Grug here is how it all started. Grug began his life as the top of a Burrawong tree that fell to the ground. Resembling a small, striped haystack with feet and a nose, Grug is fascinated by the world around him and solves everyday problems creatively and without fuss.
These books were written by Ted Prior and now we have added one to our book collection. The show only goes for about 35 minutes which is long enough for little kids and i highly recommend you go and check it out.
So last Friday A Little Bit of Cheek had its first real photo shoot (as a professional photographer took the photos not me). Natalie from Sweet Blue Photography was brilliant. All i had to do was decide what the kids would wear and she did the rest. While i stood there and watched i was unsure what these photos were going to look like. I guess unless you're looking at it though the lens you really have no idea.
You can imagine how ecstatic i am with then end results. There are so many great photos i can't decide which one is my favourite.
I am currently working on a new home page for A Little Bit of Cheek which i am super excited about. I've also added a photo of me and my cheeky little girl on our 'about us' page and some of the images will be used throughout the site as well.
This photo shoot is the first of many for A Little Bit of Cheek. My daughter and neice had a blast along with all the other kids!
Nothing beats a great photo to really show you what you are about to buy.
So if you live in Adelaide and need photos taken for your wedding, family photos or anything really i can't recommend Natalie from Sweet Blue Photography enough.
Three years ago today was the most life changing day of my life. I became a mother! My beautiful little girl was born at 11.54pm. I can't believe three years have past already. Perhaps because the first year was a bit of a blur due to a lack of sleep.
Nothing beats watching your child grow and their personalities emerging. I know i am bias however Violet is the cheekiest little girl who is so loving and caring. Every day she comes up with something new to make me laugh, whether it is a silly dance or changing the words to some song.
She has filled my life in a way i never anticipated.
Happy Birthday my beautiful big girl. I love you more than anything in this world xxx
