Katie's Transformable BoatCar

Last Saturday, Katie and I went to Springwood Street Fair.

We caught the mountain train - it's been a while since I caught the train. We left the boys at home with their daddy and had a girls day out. It was nice to spend some one-on-one time together. It was a cloudy day which kept the crowds away. Luckily, the rain held off. There were a lot of people but it wasn't too crowded.


Katie held some animals and watched the street parade. We also bumped into some friends. One of the churches had a stall where children got to invent and make their own wooden toy (either a boat, car or airplane) They nailed it together and then painted it - and it was free. How wonderful is that!


Katie was excited to have a go on a power drill. Bob was one of the helpers on the Church stall. He helped Katie to construct her Transformable Boatcar...

Katie has such a great imagination. BTW, she's looking more and more like you.
