Continuing Saturday: after the Salmon Ponds, Car A containing Elf and her parents travelled down to Carlton, so they could see our old house in its new riverbank setting, under new management. Car 2 (boys and I) came home. Sharyn, Lana and baby Millie dropped in on us at the beach house - they live next to the hole where said old house used to be. It is still a hole, but hopefully the slab will be poured this week. Things are moving s-l-o-w-l-y.
Anyway, its was great to see them. Millie is very cute and alert. Lana and the boys had a whale of a time on the trampoline and digging in the dirt.
Later that afternoon, Marcus devised a game involving bouncing a ball off the back steps. If you got it up one step, you got one point. Two steps, four points. Three steps, nine points. Nine points was called "double beetroot" for some reason.
