Nathan was convinced to get a haircut! I do love his little surfer hair but because of his bad hair cut about six months ago it's been an uphill battle trying to get him to at least trim it. It was actually shocking how much hair got cut off. However,... Continue reading

A big day.... sortof! Maybe a long day would be a better title for this one. Without really knowing what I was asking of Claire, she agreed to drive with me to Pambula to pick up Emma from the Gilberts. I thought it would be nice to have her home... Continue reading

A trip to the city. This is "the" trip we do with all our guest. But even though it's something familiar, we still love it! We find new things to look at and explore, and this trip was no exception. We got off at Milson's Point and walked across the... Continue reading
