I've mentioned Andrew, our neighbour before, and I'm sure I will again. We are so lucky to have Margaret and Andrew living next door! Andrew really seems to adore Cole and Cole certainly worships Andrew. Cole is content following him around, asking questions and helping out. It's wonderful he's made... Continue reading

This is a bit of a random post but I want to make sure I remember this little treat upon our return to Canada. Some of Adam's co-workers introduced me to Greek or Turkish coffee. It's a yummy treat that I enjoy every once in a while in the afternoon.... Continue reading

This is a little hidden Australian treasure. It's a beautiful park that is fairly remote and certainly not busy (we were the only ones there). The best part of the park are the ruins that are left in tact without any grafetti or damage on them for people to explore... Continue reading

We've been here now for just about 8 months and this was our first family trip to Bondi. Nathan and I checked out the beach (briefly) after City2Surf but we hadn't actually spent any time here yet. This is I think Australia's most famous beach. They have a show here... Continue reading

Nathan's school put on a dance recital. It involves all the students from K to 6 and they put on a performance every other year. It was an amazing presentation of Alice in Wonderland around the world. All the classes did a different dance from a different region of the... Continue reading

After having a picnic lunch we headed to MacMaster Beach. Andrew and Margaret (our neighbour's at home) invited us up for the day. We went to their beach house first and then wandered down to the beach. I wasn't sure if the kids would go in, but why wouldn't they?... Continue reading

We headed north to Calga, which is an outdoor animal reserve. It was spectacular! I bought tickets on Scoopon for the group to go and it was not only cheap ($10 per person) but AMAZING! Our guests were blown away by the "Walmart greeter". There was a small kangaroo that... Continue reading

Today was a busy one. Jonas, Nantz, Adam and I started our day by heading to Flemmington market first thing. We realized after we'd gone through 18 apples in 1.5 days we should buy in bulk! So we headed down and got lots of fruit, veggies and some seafood for... Continue reading

Nathan, Emma and Adam headed off to school (I know, I'm mean!) and I took Mark, Cole and our guests down to do some of the "must see" activities in Sydney. We took the train into town and got off at Town Hall. We then walked across the Harbour Bridge... Continue reading

I have to say that life here truly has become "normal". What I mean by that is we are busy with day to day activities like sports, groceries, friends, chores..... the only difference is we're doing them in Australia! BUT I will say we were so excited to be reminded... Continue reading

Wow! We found quite the park thanks to Andrew, our neighbour's recommendation! It's in Galston and boy was it fun! It was $5 entry into the parking lot, but well worth it. I should have packed a picnic as I think Cole would have spent the entire day here. Apparently... Continue reading

Australia is making me turn over a new leaf! I'm sure that this one will shock anyone that knows me. Not only am I eating, but I'm enjoying beans and lentils! How crazy is that!? I've always been the one to "sort" my chili and pull out the beans but... Continue reading

We've been trying out a lot of new and "healthier" recipes in our house lately. I'm working on getting off the "white" flour, but it's taking a bit of time with the kids. They love the white flour, although when I've subbed other things we've been more successful than I... Continue reading

A few Saturdays ago, we had Adam's staff over for a dinner and Canada Day party! It was great fun! I really like Adam's coworkers! They are LOVELY! I think we had about 40 people here for our Canadian day feast (you'll notice some repeats as we had this party... Continue reading

Each week our goal is to find and play at a new park. On this particular day we found a park in Dural right beside the library. It certainly wasn't a huge park by any means but Cole loved it! We spent a couple of hour here playing, doing challenges... Continue reading

Nathan does have a lovely class. Not only are the kids great, but I've met so many nice moms as well. I've been lucky that they've taken us in and we have a bit more of a social life with them now. Love it! The other day it was Mr.... Continue reading

Well, it's unfortunate but true, all good things must come to an end. Our last day in Tasmania was a bit bittersweet. We were ready to head home and stop living out of a suitcase and driving every day BUT we certainly loved our holidays and time together. We got... Continue reading

We got up bright and early as we wanted to get to Hobart early so we could check out the market. BUT something got in the way..... SNOW!!!! It was AWESOME! As we started our drive, we saw a sprinkling of snow....and I mean sprinkling. The kids were so excited... Continue reading

We stayed the night in Davenport. It was a sweet little town. To start our day off we went to the Simon Martin whip shop. I'll be honest, I wasn't too excited but I knew the kids would be. BUT once we were in the shop I was thrilled! They... Continue reading

Back to our holidays (that were over a month ago!) I'm playing catch up on my posts...lots to come and all over the map (literally!) After we went to the museum we headed on the road to a Sea Horse World in Beauty Point. When we walked onto the pier,... Continue reading

What fun! I had a date with my good friend Martha today. She messaged me on Facebook and across the ocean we stamped together. It was fun. She picked the stamp set and I set the color combo. And then... Continue reading

The buttertart squares were a big hit at the Canada Day parties (more for the adults... although the kids loved them!) I did put Saltanas (raisins) in them and I think the kids would have preferred none or chocolate. Anyhow, they still went over well! Here is the recipe: 1/2... Continue reading

Well, we did it! Sunday was the City 2 Surf run here in Sydney! Let's just say it was crazy busy. We left the house just before seven to catch a 7:05 train. We ended up at Hyde park which is where the start line was about 8:30. We were... Continue reading
