On the road again! Cole and I were excited to get to see the girls off to school in the morning at their bus stop. Their school bus is more like a coach bus and Cole was ready to hop on the bus with the girls it looked like so... 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

Last weekend we met the Gilberts in Kiama for a weekend together. They had a family birthday party to go to in Robertson on Saturday so we arranged it that we would meet up on Friday, we'd spend the day with Emma and then catch up again around supper. It... Continue reading

For Cole's birthday he wanted to go to a different park each day of the week. An easy task, right? It was a fun one too! On Friday (the day after his birthday) we invited his friend Bea to come walk to the park down the road for Teddy Bear's... Continue reading

When we were planning our trip to Australia we told them we had to celebrate one of everything before we left. And then in coming to Australia we said we get to experience one of everything while we are here. So today was Cole's "one of everything" (his words). It... Continue reading

I think I've said that the Halloween supplies were few and far between here compared to home. It made me realize I think that we're a little over the top in Canada BUT also that a little more would have made our Halloween prep a little easier:) (or access to... Continue reading

On Herbert and Matt's last night, Adam came home from work quickly and picked us up and we headed to Shelly Beach. Matt brought his snorkeling gear from Canada and was a bit disappointed to not use it so Adam wanted to make sure they got used! So away we... Continue reading

We are so lucky to have such wonderful friends here in Australia. The Scott family has been amazing and welcomeing since Day 1. Lucky for us (and unlucky for Karen!) Taylor no longer has his morning naps which means we get play time! Cole is super excited to be the... Continue reading

What a fun little adventure this was today! Adam found out about the Blak Markets which are Aboriginal workshops (making spears and dot art projects), food booths (crocodile, camel, kangaroo and more!), craft vendors and more. I'm really glad we went today! This island is located near LaPerouse and is... Continue reading

Well for those of you that know me, I LOVE HALLOWEEN! And this year was no exception. WAY back in March when Emma had her friends over we started talking about hosting a Halloween party. It's been mentioned a million times over since then. BUT then Emma moved to Pambula... Continue reading

One of our last road trips with Herbert and Matt was up towards Newcastle. The first leg of the drive was about 1.5 hours. About 30 minutes in, Nathan got this great idea to see if he could hold his arm up for the rest of the trip. We bet... Continue reading

We almost decided against going to the Blue Mountains as we had done a lot of driving throughout the holidays, however, I'm certainly glad we did! We did a few lookouts we had never done before which were breathtaking. The first stop was Wentworth Falls. There are tons of trails... Continue reading

We left Pambula bright and early to head to Canberra for the day. It took about three hours to get there with a quick breakfast pitstop. We waited to feed the kids as the roads were pretty windy between Pambula and about the halfway point. Our first stop was the... Continue reading

I have had fun learning how to crochet and knit while I've been here in Australia. Some of the projects were done just to "learn" and others were requests. The 10 plus hats I've made weren't probably necessary, but they were a ton of fun. Cole asked me to make... Continue reading
