Lois has a sleepover

Lois stayed the night with us on Friday night, so that we could head out early on Saturday  morning to the huge Canberra Centenary Picnic at Government House. Rick had two choir performances. One at Govt House with the Men's Choir and then with Strange Weather Gospel Choir, in the city, to open an art show. Lois and I tagged along. The choirs sang well.

It was a lovely sunny and warm Spring day. Lois enjoyed patting the farm animals and watching a sheep being sheared at Government House. Then a trip into town, where she had a couple of rides on the classic Civic Merry- Go- Round.  Forgot the camera! We took a few with our phones.

Lois would not budge until the lamb had eaten every last piece of food in the bowl. The other kids just had to wait!

Lois riding  Pharlap on the merry- go- round. Lois patted the wooden horses and kissed a few on the way out. She loved it, but it's hard to catch her smiling when you have a camera these days.

In the afternoon she helped Granddad with distributing the eucalyptus chips in the garden. Lois was very determined to stick to the task and helped empty the entire load of eucalyptus chips. She had a big day.

       The white camelias are blooming once again in our front garden.
