18.52 Building Cubbies at Calthorpe's House


During the school holidays we spent a lovely morning at historic Calthorpe's house for their cubby building workshop. The fun bit was they have a Fort Magic kit just like we do at home!

We explored the beautifully preserved 100 year old house, saw the bomb shelter out the back (!), the cubby where the children played a century ago, and went on a little bush walk.

The children then took their inspiration into designing cubbies, then they ate baked potatoes, explored the grounds and just generally had a 'jolly good time'!.

17.52 {with his headphones on}





Eli loves to listen to audio books and music, especially in the evenings when he is trying to wind his bouncing self down for sleep. I discovered him like this one evening - clearly sleep had over taken him mid-scroll for his next book selection!! Melt my heart, why don't you, kiddo?? 

For my own memory file, I want to record here that his favourite current audio books are Chronicles of Narnia, Veggietales stories, Where the Wild Things Are and Anne of Green Gables :)

16.52 cousins at the cape {easter}


Five days by the rugged Victorian coastline with my sister and her crew over the Easter long weekend.

The tribe of cousins played (how I love to see them play, bond, make memories together!), we ate a respectable amount of chocolate and pretty much just wandered from beach to home and back again, a couple times a day, each day.

It was perfect! x








































Rolling on home. Memories made. It was lovely xx
