The Wishing Tree

Thursday, January 24, 2013

Dear Olive,
There's a wishing tree in Centennial Park at the moment. We didn't actually make a wish (no gold coin!), although that fourth one could definitely have been written by six year old me. And probably the third one by you. I hope it won't void the wishes if I share a few of them.















PS Shane pointed out that my last post didn't show any photos of either our picnic, or the lights. The simple truth is my camera ran out of batteries. That is all. But always good to have your constructive criticism, Shane!

I love this idea. There are so many things to be done in this world no? And this gives hope.
