It is day 2 of our local holiday and we're off to a good start. It's an absolutely beautiful and wonderfully cool morning, Talia is sleeping in the breezy outdoors and Ethan is playing water games with about 144,000 toddlers in Jacob Ballas Childrens Garden. It's the most crowded we've ever seen the place but not too much to detract from the fun!

We mosied over to Vivo City after Hort Park and had a real fun day of hamburgers and Pacific Coffee. Ethan needed a nap so we found a couch on the outdoor veranda of Pacific Coffee overlooking the sea and he slept there for an hour while we sipped iced coffees! After that it was water fun in the play area upstairs which Ethan always loves!

Ethan's initial bemusement with his new sister seems to be growing into genuine affection and intrest. Last week at his Toddler's Sunday School class when the teacher was explaining the story of how Baby Jesus was born on Christmas Day, Ethan inexplicably took a deep interest in the 'baby' and couldn't let go of it for the rest of the class despite gentle cajoling from teachers, our helper, Mary & myself! It was actually quite sweet to see how gentle he was in carrying the baby and even knew how to hold it in the right position! Here he is with Daddy long after Sunday School was over, still 'clinging to Jesus'!
