To say our Summer break has been action-packed is an understatement! It feels like just a few short weeks ago that school was ending for the year, and now we are getting ready for the kids to start back again next week.

We have been blessed with lots of family visits, perfect weather and the beautiful nature that surrounds us to make the most of our Summer holidays.

Whilst I haven't been as dutiful at taking photos as I would like to be, I am very grateful for the convenience of my iPhone and Instagram to help me capture some of our special moments. 

We've spent time exploring our local national park with Ranger John. This man is a wealth of knowledge and easily captures the attention of both adults and children alike. If you're ever in town, pay him a visit! * A few movies have been seen - Les Mis being my absolute favourite...wear waterproof mascara! * Lots of twilight BBQs at the park and river mouth fishing. * A rare morning sleep in followed by cuddles in bed until 8:30am. (I can guarantee that as soon as school starts again and we need to be organised, somehow their body clocks will change and their early mornings will turn into sleep ins!)
A brisk New Years Eve walk on the beach followed by one crazy family disco. We did have fun. * Bushwalks at National Parks and Leven Canyon with visiting family.
Many a river swim in a beautiful river taking us back to our childhood when we would swim in the river with Pop and a squealing Nan! * Farm visits with Bruce and Rhonda - one of our favourite country places to be.
Beach picnics. * Renovation rescue begins at Move Strong Gym. * We get an abundance of delicious plums from our trees this year. * Fun watching brothers and sisters tackle new parenthood! * Growing baby bumps. * Lil decides that sewing is cool. * Annual blueberry pick takes place and I get bitten by two very nasty jack jumpers on my back!
And that is a brief summary of family happenings over the last month! It's been a lot of fun and I'm not ready for school to go back yet...making the most of our last week of freedom together!
