I started taking photos of the girls here in 2011. The girls and the trees have grown a lot since then. It’s such a beautiful time of year.
I don’t have much to say at the moment so here are some lovely spring Waratahs and a cute echidna.
Last Sunday we spent a beautiful sunny morning at a citrus farm picking oranges. We picked 8kg of beautiful sweet oranges and since then we’ve enjoyed fresh oranges in lunch boxes, sweet orange juice, chocolate chip orange biscuits, orange crackle biscuits and today we made an orange poppyseed cake. It was such a lovely experience.
We are halfway through the Winter school holidays and we haven’t done a lot. A few plays with friends, catching up on some jobs around the house and some shopping. Who knew how hard it would be to buy bedroom furniture for a teenager. I’m surprised at how fussy she is but I’m sure we’ll find something suitable one of these days.
Linden and Alice went for a bushwalk with our friend Pete and his bushwalking group. They met the group halfway and walked Cowan to Brooklyn, stopping at the picturesque Jerusalem Bay. That spot holds a special place for Linden and I as it’s the place where he proposed. I let Alice take the Gopro with her and she took some great snaps. I think she’s been enjoying some time alone with her Dad and away from her sister!
June was spent with more walks in our beautiful National Parks. We went searching for aboriginal carvings that we remembered from years ago that are at the top of Patonga. It took a bit of bush bashing and clearing of leaf litter but we were thrilled to find them. Oh and Alice turned 13!!
