Road Trip!

My brother Si and his wife Leah had their first baby a couple of weeks ago. A beautiful little girl they've named Ava. Her baby blessing was planned for Easter Sunday so our family decided to head down to Central Coast from Brisbane (about a nine hour drive) and make a bit of a trip of it!

Here is our first stop at a park in Tennerfield. We loved this weather rock!




Hayden is holding  a red autumn leaf. In Brisbane we don't really experience the seasons as much. So we are just loving the autumn colours.

 

Here Hayden has found a 'sandpit' pf sorts, when we stop at our hotel in Tamworth. This is the first time he seemed to enjoy playing in the sandpit. He used to hate getting dirty. Couldn't get him away from this though.


Mark and the boys chilling out after a game of soccer.

 

A shop that Mark actually likes! A shop with products made from kangaroo skin, sheep and leather etc!


Seth and me in Tamworth, a beautiful town!!


This is a photo for my sister who lives in the US and misses Aussie bakeries.

 

The boys eating their sausage rolls and custard tarts.



We love our Prado! Great to drive, takes quite a lot of punishment (note Seth standing on it).

 


The towns in Australia have some great names: Here we are in Gunnedah! (Not to far from Dunedoo, Wallabahdah, Eumungerie, Kootingal and Eulomongo :) ).


Here is a beautiful stop in Coonbarabran.


 I love this photo! Josh and Seth up a tree.

 You can't quite catch the beauty on camera, but it was so beautiful here, mountains all around us.




 On a stop on the way to Gosford. We stopped at this beautiful park in the middle of nowhere!



Seth may be a little big to ride this horse... 



The best thing about the road trip though- we saw our first wombat in the wild! So cute!
