Weekend with Butterflies

This weekend was awesome fun for us, coz we had a joyous trip to the 'Butterfly World' with our friends. Here are some of the pics. There were really hundreds of butterflies flying around. Blues, greens, whites , reds, browns and many more colours of butterflies were all busy fluttering around oblivious to all the people around.

Never knew butterflies feed on bananas:)) And the birds on the right bottom side of the below pic are called Lorikeets (don't know why!)

There were also cute little, chirpy, colourful birds. I coudn't really capture them in a picture, but here are just a few of them. The creature in the right bottom side in the below pic is nothing but DRAGONFLY. Have you seen such a huge one?

I said "Say Cheese" and it gave a big pose to my camera:))

Here is my son Ankush happily playing in the swing. This is his first time in the swing. He was so excited:)

Oh yeah ! And after the rendevouz with butterflies and dragonflies , we went off to the beach. This was Ankush's first visit of the ocean and..my my....he was a bit scared this time:) But he generally loves playing in water. Me and Ankush totally have fun during his bath time. He loves to put his tiny hands in the bucket of water and tap on it to see the water splish splashing around:)

DIY Easy-Peasy Shelf Organiser

Ho Ho Ho..It's been a long time time since I last posted. Have been and had been very busy last couple of months, hence the hiatus. We shifted to Florida, USA exactly a month back. Oh! Its already a month, time just slips. So we've been settling down here slowly and its taking all my time to manage my 8 month old boy and home. I hardly get to use the laptop during day time. Its only when Ankush sleeps that I get free to do my stuff.
                 So I've been wanting to put all used boxes/cartons to some use here, hence I decided to make myself a neat and easy organiser. Here's how I did it-

Cut the larger side out. This happens to by favourite cereal:)

Fold in the seperated sheet as shown.

Seal the loose edges using a cello tape as shown.

Then cover it with a gift wrapper or any coloured paper.

And VOILA!!! Here you have a neat easy peasy organiser, didnt even take ten minutes to do and Ankush is soo happy to see his favourite toys neatly arranged.

Oh and here are the banana, oats cookie that I baked 2 days ago.It was so soft and chewy and yummy:)) Got the recipe here. Do check it out , It's an awesome website.

About Ankush, He now can sit on his own. He has become more naughty, but hes very quiet with strangers unlike what he was in India.Hes grown tall and I'm waiting to see him crawl around soon:))
