It was lovely to go and spend some time at my Mum and Dad's new house and spend time at the beach, but it's also nice to be back in our own beds. When we were coming back home after being away for a week Harri said 'I love our new house Mum'. I think it's always going to be known as 'our new house'.
We live in such a beautiful state, and I keep saying to the boys that we take it for granted too much. There is so much that we haven't seen or done that is so close to home, so yesterday I told the boys were were going on a road trip. I had always seen beautiful photos of the Bridestowe Lavender Farm but had never been there, even though it's so close to home, so that was our first port of call. It is the largest privately owned lavender farm in the world.
Kobe was loving smelling all the lavender products in the shop, but Jay wasn't impressed. He hated it and kept wanting to get out of the shop.
On the way home we stopped at the blueberry farm to pick some blueberries for home. The boys kept talking about the last time we went there four years ago, when they had gone on a school excursion as book buddy classes, and Kobe and I joined them as 'parent help'.
This photo makes me smile. Kobe is so nervous that Jay isn't going to make it back without getting wet!
Just a couple of minutes from the first falls are the second falls.
We had such a lovely day together. It's a pity that school holidays are almost over, because we are finally starting to enjoy them. We look forward to playing tourists every school holidays, and discovering more places we have never been to.
