 Norfolk Island may be thousands of kms away from big Adventure and Theme Parks - but that doesn't mean we can't make our own fun!
Chris and Leanne and their team held a Family Fun Day out at St Barnabas' and the Parish Centre last week - and everyone had a ball!
 This was Nate's first time on the waterslide
 But he was soon  right into it!

 Dads come in handy - to pull you along...
 Give you a push...
 Or a piggy back......

There were three legged races

For young and old!!
 Then we had some egg and spoon races...

 Then the skipping rope came out.
 The men tried to show off their skipping skills

 Bishop Rob and Margie called in to see the fun and stopped for a cuppa.
 The older kids and young (and not so young) adults had a great game of French Cricket.

 Kim sent along some jelly cups, and Nate was the first to try them out.
 Fun on the "swings with a view"
And the see saw....

In the hall, the table tennis table came out
 While others had a great time swinging on the rope from the giant old fig tree.

After all that activity, everyone was hungry, and the guys had a barbecue going...

With lots of salads and sweets brought along by everyone
 After dinner, there was a concert. Tom performed his great "Hat" routine
 Sandy did a Powerpoint presentation showing us what the kids had got up to earlier in the week.

 While Chris and Leanne did their theatre tricks, much to everyone's amusement.
 The Young team performed a skit for us.

What a wonderful day - and it was all " old fashioned do-it-yourself fun"

Hi Mary.
I hope you get this. We seem to be related! My grandmother was Doris Hardy who's father was George Hardy (1884), brother to Elizabeth A Hardy (1880), your grandmother.
I'm really excited to see your blog posts about her. I have my grandmothers wedding photo and your mother is on it as well as a few of her sisters and other family. If you want to get in touch, use

I would love to be able to swop family history with you. I really hope to hear from you.

I just love how Nate does't know how do to the egg and spoon race (holding the egg on the spoon) but give him jelly and it is gone if a few seconds. Gotta love that boy.3
