Guppying at the Haig Street Quarry Reserve

Aunty A and the Boys invited us up to the Quarry to have a play and catch some fish and Guppies.

This pic is taken on the platform overlooking the lake, formed by the old disused quarry.

Our New Car

We decided that we wanted to get out with the family to do some more camping, and realised that the poor ol' Tiida just wouldn't do it for us

Bye Bye Casper

So we said bye bye to Casper

Hello Rocky

And Hello to Rocky the Great Wall X240.

The Girls decided to call it Rocky because it being a 4WD it can go over rocks and stuff.

Father's Day Outing to Fernvale.

Father's Day Outing to Fernvale

Father's day again today, an we had the pleasure of Grandad and Annie's company.

We thought a nice meal at the Old Fernvale Bakery would be the way to celebrate the day.

After our meal we took a wet stroll down the road to an Craft Gallery / Antiques / Tea Rooms just down the side road near the Bakery.  We listened to an old wax phonograph from 1904. It was amazing, the owner told us that in 1904 that Phonograph cost approximately 50 weeks wages.

Zorro Helps Springclean

On her second day of holidays, Mum decided to do a spot of spring cleaning, and Zorro decided that she needed his opinion on where thing should be put.

Or more than likely, if you know of his voracious insatiable appetite, he was hoping to get some nibblies.
