We left the awful rain behind in Sydney this Easter weekend just gone, and swapped it for glorious sunshine in the Hunter Valley. On Saturday my Sister, Leanne, and her family all took us to Wollombi, a small town about half an hour from their home. Who knew it would be so busy with other like minded people! It was really great to be outdoors, the kids had a blast doing nothing in particular, just enjoying their cousins company. After lunch at the pub, we wandered around the (very) small town for a bit, the markets were on too, so Leanne and I had a little look around there as well.

I love how little Remi was interacting with the statues, I didn't see Leanne stalking him, so I was very surprised to see some lovely pics of him.

After lunch at the Gardens, we went back to the farm. The kids absolutely love it there, jumping on the trampoline, flying on the swings, going for a bushwalk to find rabbits, and their new favourite thing to do - riding the motorbike and quad. Their older cousins were so wonderful, both days, doubling them around the yard at a snails pace - so sweet. Thank you E and O.

That night we celebrated Mum's 65th birthday with a BBQ and a home made cake. After cake, we all sat around the campfire, it was a really lovely evening, the stars were shining bright out there in the pitch dark countryside.

A fab weekend, now we're all exhausted!
