Happy 10th Birthday Jack


Jack's birthday was a series of celebrations. His big present was a brand new iPad air 2 which is a requirement for grade 5! We had the best day ever at the pool with Molly and Oscar. Jules made Jack's favourite, lasagne for dinner and invited the whole urban family to celebrate with a Pok├ęball cake.

Nimmitabel


Janet and Jeremy bought this 'holiday block' in Nimmitabel and we visited for Grace's 12th birthday. 



We walked through the bush to find a beautiful little pond. There were sounds of peace, crickets and birds until we were greeted by LEECHES which completely freaked all the city kids out.


The kids played card games and had water fights. It was a beautiful way to escape the rat race and a much cooler climate than Bemboka which is just 30kms away.







At 5.30 the wind changed from East to West and the temperature dropped by 10 degrees. The fog came over like a blanket. It was beautiful!

Flea Creek


It has been a while since we ventured into the Brindabellas. The boys had completely forgotten what 4WD'ing was all about.


Many of the Canberra ponds and rivers have been closed due to blue green algae but Flea Creek was open and the water was crystal clear.
