Ten on Ten: Take me to the river

Welcome to ten on ten! On the 10th of each month I share 10 photos from our family life.

I was craving some time in nature, a craving I have on a regular basis. We filled up the picnic basket with goodies, put the kayaks on the roof of the car and set off.

Our first stop was Bells Rapids which is located in the Swan Valley.  The children lead the way so of course we were scrambling over rocks and taking every trail that caught their eye.

MILLIGAN ISLAND CAMPING GROUND

The car and camper trailer was packed and we were ready to set off for the Easter long weekend. The only problem was we had no booking and no where to go. We hoped to get a site at Sandy Cape Recreational Park which is a first in first severed basis campground. It seems that everyone else had the same plan and the place was full to the brim.

Making Sunprints

Summer holidays are in full swing and to tell you the truth I was dreading it! Worried about how I would entertain my two little children without Kindy and our usual activities. To my surprise I have been enjoying these school holiday. There is no need to rush around in the morning, the mornings are now calm. We have been spending lots of time at the beach swimming and pottering around the house.

Spending lots of time at home means we have been doing lots of craft, making and creating. My daughter JJ and I have been experimenting with a Sunprint Kit.

10-pram-friendly-walks-in-nature-in-perth

As soon as I am outdoor and in nature I can feel my body relax, especially the tension I am carrying in my shoulders.  I didn’t even realise how tense I am until I get outdoors. When you have small children, getting outdoors, going into nature and walking can do you the world of good. The fresh air, listening to the birds and a dose of D is good for the soul.

Attempting a bush walk with a pram can often by difficult if you don’t know where to go. So many times I have had to do a bit of 4wd with the pram as I have gone down a path that was not suitable.Read More »
