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.

4wding from Ledge Point to Seabird

My girls weekend getaway in Toodyay

A girls weekend is something I am always dreaming of. Time away with my mates and a break from the demands of motherhood. When my friend Ciara asked me if I would like to go to Toodyay for the weekend I didn’t hesitate to say yes.

It was a wonderful getaway as it was a break in the country with three of my good friends. We catch up on a regular basis but we always have our small children in tow. This means that conversations are usually stunted while someone runs over to pick up a crying child who has skinned their knee. We never seem to finish a conversation as they are continually interrupted.
