Happy 16th anniversary to us! 2015-06-12

We don't see movies in theatres ('the cinema', as Aussies say) often, but this was one that Daddy insisted we see! 2015-06-17

We invited friends over for another night of 'Ice Cream & Ice Age', this time to see movie #2 - and for free, in celebration of New Church Day! (No thematic connection, just fun :=) ) 2015-06-19

We celebrated New Church Day 'for real' on the Sunday, with a luncheon after church (minus our pastor, who was called to Perth for a memorial service!) 2015-06-21

Festivities proceeded as planned, nonetheless. Behold, the great red dragon (piñata)! 2015-06-21

-Then Daddy went to Bryn Athyn for clergy meetings. While the cat was away, the mice did play - enjoying foods that Daddy otherwise would not appreciate! :=D (Wild mushroom cakes, mmm!) 2015-06-25

Max & Zach a) created a hand-powered mixer out of Lego, with which they b) mixed strange and not-so-wonderful concoctions! :=P 2015-06-28
