treasure hunts at sunrise..
picnics on the beach, cubby building in the tea trees, and this hardworking man stops...
heading to Beatrix in Nth Melbourne for morning tea.
This is the first time our boys have been and OH were they impressed!!
The most divine cake ever, red velvet cake & chocolate chiffon, heaven I tell you!
They told Nan and Pop all about it when we reached their place. Mum said the boys were describing it all so dreamily it was like they could still taste it on their lips...
Nat's growing collection of beaters is looking gorgeous, a work of art & quirky fun..
and then up to Nan & Pop's for a few days of running over rolling hills, bush walks, sleeping out in the camper and catching up with family...
the traditional Good Friday picnic in this same (very old) park with my entire family.
There are so many of us we need to use public facilities for catching up because there are too many to fit in any one persons house!
We've been coming to this same place for my whole life, my parents started the tradition before I was born, when they were first married...
old school round-a-bout, the best ride ever!
Here I am on the whizzy with my little guy, I do nothing but laugh on this thing, really, really laugh!
Though I find it much safer on the middle wire than the seats these days, there's always a spill..
on the way home..
I tried to capture this moment when hubby and I were singing our hearts out to a favourite song,
the boys tired out in the backseat watching, listening & taking it all in.
It was a moment that made my heart feel suddenly so full, a most grateful moment.
Though as pointed out by the big boy I look really cross in this picture!

Happy Easter to you all!!
