We spent this morning trying to get ourselves a little bit sorted for our Melbourne trip.
We also ran some errands up at the bank and then hired a few DVDs.
We watched Home Alone with our nephews and niece. We remember watching that movie as kids and enjoying it. And we rewatched it actually while we were in Paris last year and thought the kids would really enjoy it. And they did! Such a silly movie but definitely up any child’s alley.
Summary of April 7
We tried Gelato Messina for the first time tonight. We now understand all the hype but seriously don’t think it’s worth lining up for. And luckily, we didn’t have to.
There’s a scene in Home Alone, where Kevin is in the church on Christmas Eve talking to Marley (the old man that he is scared of). And during their conversation Marley tells him that he misses his son but is too scared to call him. Kevin’s words of advice is to just call him because then “at least you know, and then you can stop worrying about it. And you won’t have to be afraid anymore.”
It’s incredible how in everything we watch or read nowadays, we find little life lessons that we can take from it. Even from a movie like Home Alone. There is no need to worry or be afraid. And if we are, we should just find out the truth before we dwell or get sad about anything.
We had to wash fruits and vegetables in the bubblers at the park. It wasn’t easy when the water dribbles out and the “sink” was so shallow. But we didn’t complain… we made it work 🙂
