Sitting at the main arena waiting for the monster trucks
Amazed at the defeaning sound of the monster trucks as they entered the arena
Watching a few normal jumps, before one did a jump a little too fast and ALMOST FLIPPED OVER. It didn’t but landed with a crunch on its front steering rod which snapped cleanly in two. Cut the show short, but it was very exciting.
Watching a hilarious comedy exchange between a guy and his horse.
Going on a few rides as night fell and enjoying the speed and being flipped upside down

Waking up early on Sunday morning to get ready for a big day. It was our family’s annual picnic day to celebrate my father-in-law’s birthday. We always go to Thirroul beach which has a nice park for the young kids to play in as well.
However before going to the beach, Cejay had his first trial soccer game of the season at 9am.
Hanging out with a friend while watching the soccer and relishing being outside in the beautiful weather with a coffee.
Enjoying the game and Cejay’s team winning
Getting a little concerned when things turned a bit hostile on the field.
Heading to the beach!
