We have a little Saturday morning ritual, this family of mine. After scrambled eggs at home, we head out for morning tea to Red Door Bakery in nearby Croydon for takeaway coffee and delicious pastries (Mark, an almond croissant; Everly, a plain croissant; and me, always a fruit danish). We walk around the corner to the playground where Everly is usually content to play by herself on the equipment for a few minutes, giving Mark and I precious relaxing time to sit back on the bench and sip our coffees. Then we take it in turns helping Everly up the rock wall and cheering her on down the slide, until she's had enough and it's time to go home. It's such a lovely, relaxed start to our weekend. I love Saturdays!
*More pics of Red Door treats in an old post here (mmm... pies and crème brûlée tarts!) It was one of our weekend regulars, even before Everly came into our lives. We ate there so often I wrote a little story for Adelaide's Five Thousand magazine.
