Leigh (my best friend from high school, here to support me during the birth) has unbelievably been here almost two weeks now!! It's been great and very natural having her around.
I just thought this photo looked cool. I was about 35 weeks here.
We then went and had a tea party with cupcakes in the park just down the road from our house.
We ate and drank and talked and shared and played a few silly games and opened presents and
they prayed over my belly =) The white yarn was a symbol of womanhood and unity and afterwards we cut the yarn and each girl took her piece home to tie somewhere to remember to pray for me.
This is the view across the road from her house.
And this is me trying to give one of her four sheep a kiss. I left out the photos of me chasing them, trying to catch them... I didn't succeed, but I hope my friends had a good laugh watching me run at 38 weeks!
This little guy hopped out of his mother's pouch and proceeded to give himself a good belly scratch! It was very funny =)
Our favourite baby animal by far though was this little koala. Oh SO cute! Later his mother climbed over to another tree and proceeded to wrap her arms around him (below). Just precious!
At Erskine Falls, outside of Lorne.
On the road, picking wild Calla Lillies along the way.
Mark's best koala face.
Our campsite, right across from a stream and beautiful cliff face, and a 3 minute walk to the beach!

And that beach, a three minute walk away.
Still to come... photos from the 12 Apostles! Stay tuned...
