Nature Walk

Last weekend we went for a walk on a little hiking trail. It was a 1.6km (1mile) return trip. A perfect length for little legs. The boys had a blast, and we really enjoyed getting back to nature. It was so wonderfully peaceful in the middle of the bush.

4 weeks to go!

Today marks 4 weeks until we leave for our big trip to America.
We are starting to get really excited! We have booked and paid for almost everything we can organise ahead of schedule.
We are now up to trying to work out how on earth to pack 4 people's stuff into the right size and weight bags to meet the requirements of all 8 flights we will be taking. Wish us luck!

Thanks Aunty Shell & Uncle Michael – boys love packages!


I had to do a (rare) morning shift at work the other week. The boys and I were happy to see this sunrise from our front door.


Loving new bikes

Ben and Ethan LOVE their new bikes. We went to the bike park almost daily for the first week or two after they got them. Here are a few pictures.

I think I may have uploaded the first 2 pics before, but I haven’t been on the laptop in weeks. I have only just seen the iPhone posts and the photo quality is terrible :( The pictures themselves aren’t as bad when they are published via the laptop. I’ll try and get on the laptop more…. sorry about that!IMG_3486 IMG_3492 IMG_3518.JPG (2)

In this photo, Ben is riding with his friend Maddie. The boys are friends with identical twins, Maddie and Ruby. We have been to the park with them a couple of times.IMG_3541 IMG_3568

We also took Grandma to the bike park. We had a picnic lunch and the boys did some riding. It was a beautiful morning :)IMG_3569
