After a few minutes of catch up, Benny went straight in and started asking questions. Simon gave him his hand cuffs to play with. Unfortuntanately I didn't have the camera out until the end of his visit so I missed footage of Ben with the handcuffs. The kids loved them, taking turns putting them on eachother and leading one another around the house and yard. It got a little difficult to have a conversation toward the end once the kids discovered there were lots of cool things on Simons' belt.
Here he is showing the kids the capsicum spray - one of the two things they were not allowed to touch (the other one being the gun) Didn't stop JJ from sneaking up from behind and grabbing it - luckily Simon noticed in time!
Not sure what this one's called ....a baton??
Time to go, bit tricky with Lani attached to his arm. Simon commented that it must look like he's dragging her out to his car. She didn't want him to go.
The whole family including the dog said goodbye. Once Simon drove away, Benny turned to me and said "That was the best thing that has ever happened here in Tasmania!" I think he wishes he could take Simon to show and tell.
Thanks for the visit Simon, bet you didn't know you'd be such a hit! - And best wishes and love to Simone for the safe delivery of a brand new little bub in the next few days.
