A Sunday Explore

We have recently discovered some hidden treasures on our farm.

Yesterday, the kids and I decided to go for a bushwalk and explore.

We walked down the hill and along the track and came to our bottom dam. We have a flying fox across the dam, that I (might) let the kids swing across when they are about..say 50 years old!

The girls and I walked and Mr C (aged 8) rode the quad bike. It was a beautiful, warm winters day...

We walked along the little creek near the dam, and found a waterfall and a peaceful swimming hole.

I can't believe we have this oasis right in our backyard!

The kids loved exploring and having a picnic snack above the water of the dam.

How damn (hee hee) lucky are your kids?
Childhood bliss, me thinks.

Wow! What a great spot to raise kids. Their memories of growing up are going to be filled with great outdoorsy fun! I love that.
Huge fan of your blog.

Living near the city means we don't have places like this to go to :( So nice!
