Family friends and farewell Perth

When in Perth we stayed all four nights with some very dear friends of mine. I have known them for almost 20 years but the last 10 years or so we have hardly seen each other due to us living states and even countries apart.

While it was great fun visiting places like Fremantle and Kings Park the best part of the trip was just hanging out with them.

The kids also loved it even though my friends three kids are way older then them. They loved the big house, the garden, collecting eggs from the chooks, the massive trampoline and the swimming pool. Most of all though they loved the music.

My friends all have some seriously wonderful musical talent and in the house there was a piano, drum set, marimba, violin, ukelele and guitar (plus the rest!)

My girls just loved trying out all these instruments that they had never seen before and there was some pretty terrible noises emanating from the music room every day we were there!

Before we knew it, our time had come to an end and it was time to catch another plane, this time to Melbourne.

Here are a few photos from our time staying at our friends house.

Jacob just loved this bike as he could ride it himself.

With the cooler weather the trampoline got used a lot.

The sounds coming from this were awful but it was great to see the kids interest.

And just to finish I took a little bit of footage of Andrew playing the drums. I was quite impressed with his handy work!

  2. brrr it looks cold!!

    Gotta start with small beginnings when it comes to music; maybe making a guitar out of rubber bands earlier in the year will pay off after all. Has it piqued their interest in playing an instrument?

    • They both want a Ukelele now for sure (I had mentioned that I wanted to get one in Thailand this trip but before they did not seem all that interested) plus Ariya sent her Auntie Anne an email the other day to ask her to scan some piano music as she really wanted to play Grandmas piano but had no music she could read.
