Dear Lola, 

When you wake up on a bright & sunny Saturday morning and papa suggests we hit the road and head into the heart of Bondi to check out the 'Sculpture by the Sea' exhibition, my immediate response was "Sure, let's go, quick pack our bags, Maeve is due for her morning nap... like now!" Within half an hour we were on the road.

I didn't think about the fact that we would be travelling in the car for two hours with a 5 week old & a 3 year old. And then another two hours back home. I didn't think about the traffic jams, the non-existent parking, the 30 degree forecast heat, or the dozens of stairs that would face us as we ventured on the sculpture walk with two prams. 

But you know what? We didn't need to let these minor details worry or consume us, as us Jameson's love a good adventure, in all circumstances. And truth be told, it was a brilliant day, and everything fell into place just perfectly. (Someone sure was looking out for us, big time!)

Maeve, you are so relaxed. You slept the entire car trip, quenched your thirst as you pleased, gazed about the open sky from the comfort of your pram, and slept peacefully.

Lola, you munched on Maccas hotcakes, played eye spy, and requested Elvis Presley, Cloud Control, David Bowie & The Beatles from the back seat. You were so excited to see the sculptures, making countless predictions about what lay ahead of us. And you weren't at all disappointed as you darted ahead pointing out the impressive art, and climbing steep stairs like a champ. (We left your stroller at the start of the walk, and papa & I carried Maeve up the stairs in her pram.)

What a fun day out. We'll let the photos do the talking, 

say 'sculpture'!

Till next time Sydney...

Your mama
