Easter Trees

Following in our tradition of previous years, this week we put up our Easter tree. There were all sorts of treasures stashed in the Easter box, long forgotten. The kids have plans for Easter baskets, dying eggs and of course the annual Good Friday egg hunt with their friends.

Balloons, bikes and bells

A spontaneous trip to Canberra to escape another rainy weekend in the mountains. Sometimes I am grateful to my husband who humours the suggestion at at 10 o'clock in the morning that we should head to Canberra. Within the hour we had accommodation booked, bags packed, bikes loaded and we were on our way. We were treated with the most glorious sunshine we had seen in months and stumbled upon all kinds of special Canberra events. A lazy afternoon at Cockington Green was the perfect way to end our adventure.

Dad's birthday

A very understated celebration for Dad's birthday. Pizza for dinner and tower of cannoli for a cake.
