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.

Outings

A few days ago we were all going a little stir crazy so we piled in the car and went for a drive.  We ended up at South Arm and Opossum Bay.





























We stopped at all the beaches along the way for a play and a bit of an explore.  Had fish and chips for lunch.  Called in to see Nanny and Joe on our way home then at Amy's and the boys to meet their new dog Coco.
It was a beautiful day for photos.  I wish I was better at it!  I have ideas in  my head but they don't always translate to the actual thing so well.  I think that it all boils down to not quite knowing enough.




























































That said I do quite like these fun jumping photos I snapped.  The I love how the colours everyone was wearing all blend so well with the landscape.





































































































































And my personal favourite - Matt's Fonzie Pose!






















Getting nice photos of my boys is EXTREMELY difficult.  So I told them I'll just use the silly ones then!
(does anyone else think Reuben looks like Brendan Fevola here?  either that or just plain possessed!)









































I love the outdoors and sharing it with my family is the best.
