A weekend wonderful


We're spending a lovely long weekend at my brother's place at Anna Bay.



I love hanging out with my peoples...we're good together, the kids have so much fun, the adults laugh a lot and we always leave wishing we lived in the same town.



Beautiful warm days...the beach a few blocks away...and a three day weekend to enjoy it all.


Good times!






My surf mad's clearly genetic!




I'm hanging out at the dining table, inhaling the moorish aroma of almost ready roast lamb while tapping out this post and listening to my Hubby & Brother having a jolly good chat about Life, the Universe & Everything.



Life is Lovely!



Nightfest 2013

Floriade's Nightfest 2013.



Was it totally spectacular? Abso-freaking-lutely!

Lit like a Fairy Wonderland with cafes & carnival rides.


My favourite part of the evening...wandering through the most enchanting light installation in the woods. It was completely mesmerising.


Nightfest, we have fallen head over heels for you. We'll be coming back every year to dally in your magical playground.

Floriade 2013


Floriade is Australia's largest annual celebration of Spring with more than one million blooms creating a spectacular living work of art and it's held right here in Canberra. How lucky are we to have this month long festival on our doorstep! We go every year, usually several times and revel in the eye-popping colours of Spring.

The boys love the circus playground which was a new addition to the kids area. Jack was just a little bit in awe of the plate spinning.
Harry hung with the pram...circus music weirds him out.
Then onto the petting farm for one happy, hands-on toddler!


This year we're hitting up Floriade's Nightfest too. Sick kids and bad weather foiled previous year's attempts but gosh darn it, we are going to go and see everything lit up like a fairy wonderland this year if it kills us!


Oh...and Happy 100th Canberra!
