Welcome to ten on ten! On the 10th of each month I share 10 photos from our family life. I know I am a bit late sharing this post but I am sure you can forgive me!
The heat was intense, it was a welcome relief when the weather turned. The sky grew dark, loud claps of thunder echoed through the sky and lightening could be seen in the distance.Read More »
We have camped with our children since they were infants. I must admit I was nervous when we strapped our little bundle of joy into the car and headed down a rough dirt track into the Aussie bush. We camped in a remote location with no amenities just plenty of fresh country air and tall trees to give us shade. Read More »
People often tell me that they are envious of our adventures. We try and get away every six weeks and they are usually short camping trips. I decided to put the call out to all my friends and let them know that we were camping at Lake Brockman. Anyone was welcome to join us and to my surprise we had 11 families take up the offer. It was a wonderful getaway for everyone and most of all I loved seeing the children enjoying nature.Read More »
We love getting the children outdoors playing in nature and camping. Ever since they were babies we have been taking them camping. Often we camp in the winter months, the temperature during the day in Western Australia is pretty mild. However the mornings and late afternoons can get a little chilly!Read More »
I love travel journals, my bedside drawer is full of them documenting my journeys. Often I will look back at them and reminisce about the good old days and it is surprising how much you actually forget. I am grateful that I wrote every day while I was backpacking around the world as now I have these precious journals to transport me back to my travelling days.Read More »
Cruising up the coast, our 4wd is loaded to the brim with camping supplies.
A deserted beach is the perfect place to pitch a tent. Nothing but white sand and blue water.Read More »
Will my baby sleep? This is the main thing on my mind when we go on holidays or a for a sleep over. Over the years I have always used portacots and my children have not slept well, lets face it they are like sleeping on a blank of wood! That was until I discovered The Sleepovers padded fitted sheet which is one of my essential items I take when we go camping. Having the additional padding on the mattress means that my baby has a better nights sleep plus I can rest easy knowing that it is approved by the INPAA (Infant Nursery Products Accreditation and Approval).

Boshack Outback is located in the wheatbelt near the town of Bolgart which is 90 minutes from Perth. If you are travelling from Perth it is a pretty drive and I suggest stopping along the way to have a look at Noble Falls just past Gidgegannup. If you need to pick up some last minute supplies then Toodyay is a nice little town to stop in and it is located on the Avon River.Read More »
Gone are the days of throwing a bag of clothes in the Troopy (which was decked out for camping) and hitting the road in search of a new adventure. Now that we have small children we need to be more organised to make life a little easier.Read More »
I have been camping several times while I was pregnant, the last time I went I was 33 weeks when we stayed at Sandy Cape. So many women said to me there is no way they would go. Was I doing the right thing? I must admit I was nervous about going, what if something goes wrong? what if I go into labour early? what if we can’t get to a hospital in time? There were so many what if’s going through my mind.Read More »
