Our friend (and Amelia's god father) Michael took us out for dinner! The kids picked their favourite restaurant.

There's been a special Star Trek themed exhibit at the Aviation museum all summer and activities in the museum proper to go along with it. We finally got around to checking it out on one of the last days.

 

The kids dressed up as astronauts and went on a pretend space flight where they "planted" plastic vegetables, found aliens and gave them to Kevin the robot, pitched tents to hide from a sand storm and investigated the space bubble overrun by tribbles. It was pretty amusing.

 

The space bubble was a HUGE hit, but Kevin stole their hearts. Our summer tenant Hayley might have had something to do with that - Kevin is basically a giant remote controlled car but Elizabeth and Matthew were easily convinced that he was a super smart, sentient robot.

 

After our visit we took out our kites and even though it wasn't really windy enough we had fun.

In addition to tubing, another super amazing addition to our cottage fun this summer was Kids Club.

 

Bondi challenged us to become official Bondi Outdoor Club members (and win prizes). All the kids participated to the best of their abilities.

 

Amelia didn't write a poem, but she did participate in the most hilarious game of crawl tag with her older siblings who were determined that she would complete as many challenges as feasible.

 

Elizabeth's poem:

Squeegee is my best pony

She is with Abby so she isn't lonely

Squeegee likes eating carrot cake

Squeegee likes going in the lake

 

Elizabeth's essay (although her creative spelling might be the best part):

"My favourite part of Bondi is playing at the cottage and the beach! I also like everything at Bondi!!!" (Note the Olympic symbols - that's definitely been a theme this year)

 

Matthew's poems (a collaborative effort with his sister, who then got mad when she decided she liked his poem better than hers):

Pony I like your nose and tail

Only don't kick me with your hooves

Now I like to ride when you go out

You are friends with all the animals ...and me.

 

Squeegee has a nose, tail and eyes

Squeegee gives a ride to me

Squeegee's tail swats the flies

Squeegee I have to give you a huggy

 

Matthew's essay (dictated):

"My favourite part of Bondi is going swimming cuz I like going swimming. I was about to do a flip but you can't on a boat so you have to do it in the water. I did a big swim at the point a thousand times. Can't do that at home."

 

We brought the leaves home with us in order to trade it in at the museum of nature, but so far the kids can't bear to part with them so they are in their collection of cool things.

 

We didn't quite complete everything, but that just gives us something to strive for next time. Matthew picked out his very own kite as a prize, while the girls got some inflatable beach toys to play with.

Back from the cottage means time to party with Uncle Dave!

 

The kids put on a "show" and tried to play with his new wood carving knives. Good thing we had cake and licorice to distract them with...

We stopped to dip our feet in Golden lake on the way home. Matthew didn't want to get his feet wet, but Amelia definitely was pretty happy to wiggle her toes in the water.
