Easter Saturday 2011

The boys have been on school holidays for 2 weeks and it's time to end it with a bang.
Monique, Nick, Luca & Remi came to spend a couple of days with us. It's always nice to have family at the farm.

They arrived from the big smoke just before lunch on Saturday, dropped of their stuff and out we headed to the Historic town of Wollombi. This whole area was once frequented by a number of Bushranges back in the day. It feels like you've stepped back in time.( If only there wasn't 500 people there to share the experience with us). It's become quite the yuppie hangout with tonnes of people coming from all over to share a little slice of the past.

All Our Boys...

The boys had fun in the paddock behind the pub. Rolling down the grassy hill, running free and meeting other kids. Lunch was chips and sausage sangers, topped off with a beer for the big boys.


A walk through town with little ones and all that traffic wasn't as fun as it could have been, so over to the park we headed to burn off a little more energy before the drive home. Monique and I checked out the local markets. Oh! there was lots of other peoples trash that could have been my treasure. I came away with a funky green plate that may have been from anytime between the1940's to the 1970's. I love it and it will look great hanging on the kitchen wall.

We then headed off home for the boys to get some outside play time in before dark.
We had a great day.

Free range photo of me. I will have to make sure that I look a lot better than that in future. Never know when you will be blogged. I suppose I will have to suck it up.
