A Birthday Party, Relay and "Billy the Galah"

Nelson had a party with some of his friends last Saturday. It was a fun and games party. They played "Pass the Parcel"."Pin the Beak on Lucky the Lovebird" (a photo of course!)
Ate Hot Dogs and Potato Gems.
And of course, cake! Nelson wanted a homemade ice-cream cake.
This one was filled with chocolate covered honeycomb. Very yummy!
After cake the boys made key rings to take home. They decorated discs to be inserted into the key rings. Nelson did a sticker swap with Amanda of Krafty Panda earlier in the year, so they had lots of stickers to choose from.
Here's Nelson's key ring.Last Sunday Austin competed in the Box Hill Little Athletics Club Invitational Relays. His team made it to a final. They all ran really well.
Here he is waiting for one of his relays.

I let Billy the Galah out of his cage today as it was raining and he loves a shower! Billy was hit by a car and can no longer fly. Here he is having a lovely walk along the rocks in the garden.I haven't shown you anything I've been working on lately but I have be working! Last night I finished Austin's quilt. It's very grey and overcast today so I'll post some photos next post when the light is better.
