Happy Easter to you all!
I hope you're all having a wonderful break.
We visited family and friends in the Hinterland and the Sunshine Coast.
The weather was beautiful.
It's always nice to get away from it all and head to the farm.
The kids caught frogs, chased cows, built fires and toasted marshmallows.
It's great to be able to let the kids run free and just be kids.
I grew up in the country and as much as I like living in the city,
I feel sad that my kids won't grow up with the same freedom as I did.
When we go to the farm my father-in-law 'Shakey' gives us the cabin
and sleeps in this caravan which he renovated.
It's very retro.
It is so important to have (old or new) things in your home
that tell a story about you, bring back memories,
or just make you smile.
Make sure you look outside your window too...
For my city slickers, it's the simple things that make them happy.
Master R. was chuffed that he'd built and lit this fire all by himself!
(Last year his left index finger was de-tipped with a hammer,
so this was a big thing for him :)
He and B. toasted a whole bag of marshmallows.
After the Easter Bunny delivered hundreds of eggs,
we went to 'Happy Valley' to celebrate a friend's birthday.
There were lots of beautiful Pandanus trees
We would love to live near the beach!
We had a very relaxing few days
and came home to go to the ANZAC day march.
It always makes me teary.
LEST WE FORGET
