About Me

My photo
Where do I begin? I guess At the beginning! I live in beautiful Tasmania, Australia with my wonderful hubby, Matthew and our four angels (part time devils) Isaac, Reuben, Isabella, and Charlotte. Currently I'm a stay-at-home mum and I absolutely love that. Nothing else compares. I'm also studying the Master of Teaching part-time and I'm serving as the relief society president of our ward. I love being outside, especially in summer. I love big windows & lots of light. I love swimming, running and mowing the lawn! my favourite vegetable is carrots (or potatoes if mum's baked them) and I love fresh fruit salad. My most favourite thing to do is spend time with my precious family.

Enrichment Walk

Today was our first RS Enrichment 'walks of Hobart' walk.
We had a great turn out of 9. Actually that's a teensy bit misleading. There were 3 of us there plus our 5 kids and 1 dog.

On our way

The view of Beautiful Hobart from Knocklofty Reserve

Despite a chilly start, it turned out to be quite a lovely day. Carmen with Jackson, Jo with Blair, Esther, and Topaz the black lab met Charlotte, Bella (home from school sick - supposedly) and I at the Forest Rd car park . With pram loaded, baby in front pack and camera in hand - yaaaaa I finally remembered to take it!!! we took off headed for the frog pond!I think we all enjoyed the easy walk around the Knocklofty Reserve but Charlotte was super GRUMPY!

See (I've been seeing a lot of this face lately)

If anyone knows what this old building is or what it was used for please let me know :)

You can tell from this picture
just how 'sick' Bella was today.

Jo Thomasson and gorgeous little Esther...she slept almost the whole time - Esther did too!!

Carmen and her handsome little man, Jackson

What a cute kid.
I feel privileged to have a photo of him on my blog that Chernoa doesn't have on her blog.

Unfortunately I didn't get many good photos. I wasn't feeling the best today, I had the worst headache EVER!
So that's my excuse and I'm sticking with it!

Blair...it only took 1 1/2 hours to snatch these photos of Blair, he's an elusive little one this boy.

Yes Bella, you are obviously unwell you poor dear,
on your death bed even...NOT!
To be fair she was up half the night with tummy pains and has had no appetite for a few days - For Bella that is HUGE, she has the best appetite of anyone in our family.
So I guess the fresh air of Hobart really is magical.

Keep an eye on the Hobart ward RS blog for details of our next walk.

That old building is for locking up grumpy kids in, when you go on walks.

Sounds like Bella is as 'sick' as Hannah when she gets sick... One time Hannah was 'sick' and mum and dad took her town and on the way home they went to maccas.... Hannah order a LARGE McChicken burger MEAL!!...lol...
