Before setting out for Angus's party at Monkey Mania on Monday Ella enjoyed playing dress ups (trying a few outfits on Joshy's 30 year old teddy bear was pretty funny!).
But Monkey Mania proved to be an outstanding choice for entertaining a bunch of 3-4 year olds on a wet windy Monday (for over 3 hours).
Josh, Jody and Ella entertained me at a birthday celebration dinner last night, followed by an extended family breakfast this morning-complete with a glass of Majella and bagels with scrumptious fillings.
It was a gorgeous warm sunny day, our first for the week, so Claire only allowed the boys a brief stint playing computer games,
before we headed outside for the usual fun and games with the kids. It got so warm that sunscreen and hats were even required.
