A visual update

Well we are back to it! We had a nice couple weeks rest over the school holidays. Hubby had two weeks off work (1 and a half weeks with the girls and the rest of the week with me) Apart from a bad reflux attack which resulted in a 4hr visit to the ER one Sunday night, it was lovely to spend a few days together by ourselves. We got some painting done in the house while the girls were at school, its nice to freshen up the place. It's been years since we've done any painting, so I had forgotten how sore my arms and shoulders were going to be afterwards!

We went camping at Dubbo and Coonabarabran for 3 nights over the holidays enjoying the sunshine during the day and star gazed at night. We were lucky enough to see a couple shooting stars (or meteors to be more technical) while at Dubbo.

Here are a few photos of our camping trip.

Mine and Cherub's favourite...Giraffes seems such placid animals...

until one walked right up to the Safari truck we were on (he seemed friendly enough), and you hear the person on the other end of the CB say "Get out of there!!"

So nice seeing Hippo's playing together - when I say playing, it was what the Adults were telling the children, it was you know that sort of playing!! 
We loved these guys
Having a wrestle
Lovely old fella enjoying the sun, while his young played together....now Mum was busy having alone time!! (I can understand that!)

Enjoying a little snack with the Zebras...more placid animals (you just can't see the electrified fence to keep them in!)

A view of the Warrumbungles National Park
We checked out the telescope at Siding Springs observatory
We took the girls star gazing at a local Observatory in Coonabarabran and saw Jupiter

Coonabarabran on a Thursday night!

Driving to the Warrumbungles National Park - I love the long stretch of road with the mountain backdrop!
Have you been to Dubbo Zoo? Does your family like camping?


  1. Looks like an awesome trip! I was so glad Dave had quite a few days off while the girls were on holidays, it was really good to be able to all spend time together.

    1. Thanks Kylie, it was lovely. I would have loved to have stayed longer, although the 3 nights away from Sydney was still nice. Its nice having family time, I hope you enjoyed your first school holidays! :)
