  1. Jamie and Hanno are having fun, Rhonda. Thanks for the reminder about Annette's guide as I had forgotten about it and it will come in handy now. I saw her at Gardenfest last year. She has lots of great growing tips. Enjoy your weekend.

  2. Kids just got to be kids! Have fun at the Maleny Real Food Festival!

  3. What lovely pictures, Jamie will so remember these days with you and Hanno. I love a grandfather with a twinkle in his eye, my grandfather taught me how to drink out of a milk carton when noone was looking :) very bad manners, very naughty, and I always think of it with a big smile :). Blessings, Pam in Norway

  4. Funny. As soon as grandchildren arrive sensible men/granddads turn into kids again, lol.
    Hope you`re having fun at the fair!

  5. LOL! That's what Grandpas are for! That little guy is growing up way too fast!
