Over 16 years ago Aaron proposed to me at Hollybank Forest. It is such a beautiful place, and we hardly ever go there so we thought we would go out last weekend for a picnic and a play. I was so excited when I saw all the beautiful autumn leaves. I think Aaron's words were 'we're going to be here for a loooong time boys!' as he knew I would want to take lots of photos.
It was a beautiful day for Noah to lay in the sun and enjoy being outside.
Aaron and the boys spent most of the time kicking the footy around which amused the Chinese tourists a lot!
Kobe and I had lots of fun going off into the forest to take photos while the boys played footy. Kobe loved exploring everything and didn't mind at all the leeches that kept on getting us! :(
Harri really wanted his photo taken with Aaron. They have become great buddies since Harri has discovered a real love for footy. He has always liked it, but now he is more like Aaron and is obsessed with it - checking out the stats, talking about different players and who is injured and who is suspended and discussing the ladder. He kept saying 'pleeeease can you take a photo of me and Dad? I promise I will smile really good for you!'.
We thought we'd take a quick walk down to the river before we left. Kobe thought he would be helpful and tried to push Noah!
As helpful as he was, there was no way of getting around a tree right in the middle of the path, so it was the end of the road for Noah. Having a wheelchair can really make things tricky at times!
Aaron and Noah headed back to the van while I took the boys down to the river for a quick look. Harri was so funny yelling 'I can see a pool!!!".
It's definitely somewhere where we should go more often. I'm already imagining how pretty it will be in the spring time!
