What is that yellow ball in the sky?.....

Oh sorry, I think it's called the 'sun', long time no see...

As it was a lovely sunny day today, I thought we would venture out for a bus ride, something I don't normally do, especially with Steven, why you may ask, well....

Steven is such a friendly young lad, that he has to say hallo and goodbye to everyone that he sees and that includes everyone getting on and off the bus, so by the time we've gone a couple of stops, my head is already aching, lol...

I do try to take him on a bus or two every school holiday, as I feel the only way he's going to learn to not talk to everyone in his high pitched voice is by actually taking him on a bus and keep saying to him to 'no' or 'stop' (talking to strangers) when he goes to say hallo..... it's very wearing, but thought as we had to go into town today to collect he's new glasses and it's a lovely dry sunny day, we would give it a go...

So we walked down to the end of our road (not a good start as he kept stopping and saying hallo to everyone on the way)... got the bus into town, he was not too bad... (only slight headache)... we then went and sorted out he's glasses (again saying hallo to all the customers coming and going, it wouldn't be so bad if they could understand what he was saying, but he's hallo sounds like a lot of 'iiii' and it's always in a very high pitched voice)...

Anyway he looked very smart in he's new glasses, (slightly different style this time) we then went for a walk round Victoria Park, fed some of the animals there (guinea pigs, ducks, rabbits, birds etc.) played in the new swing park, on the hammock and dish swing and treated ourselves to an ice cream, well it was hard work with all that walking and swinging, lol...







I did take some photo's of steven feeding the animals, but as he kept putting the food through the fencing at above head height, wasn't a good picture, lol the animals were not too please either, I think they thought he was teasing them, lol....

When it was time to come home, we got another bus back, but went the long way round this time, Steven was a lot better going home, not sure if it was because he was tired with the walking and swinging, but for me it was nice being able to look out the windows at some of the places I used to work at or visit, lol bought back quite a few memoires...

After getting off the bus, we stopped off at the co-op and bought a pack of 3 pecan and toffee cookies, well we thought we would treat hubby to a cookie too, as he's been stuck in doors working all day... and seeing he missed out on the ice cream too...
