Nan and Pop's 60th Wedding Aniversary Weekend

September 10-12th, 2010

Friday 10th we braved the weather to drive down to Wangaratta for a very special weekend.

 The flooding in Wangaratta peaked on the Wednesday, so had gone down alot by Friday when we arrived. Still it wasn't down to normal levels yet.
 This is the Ovens River near the caravan park were we stayed. The river should be on the other side of the trees that you can see in the water.

 This guy was totally cut off. As you can see his yard is very small at the moment. Good for getting out of mowing.
 This shows how much high the water was only 2 days ago. This bit of wood has been wedged inbetween 2 tree as it was hurled along by the raging waters.

Saturday 11th

As the weekend was a surprise for Nan and Pop we chose to make ourselves disappear on Sabbath. What better way than going out to Bright.

 Here we are playing follow the leader. Uncle B was our fearless leader. As he was the local we all hoped he knew where he was going, cause we didn't. Brother S and his family were 2nd in charge. Mum and Dad 3rd and we followed up the end.
 After having a great BBQ at Bright we called back into the Red Stag, a deer farm, for the kids to feed the local. We got to admire the views. Look at all that snow.

 This is a very rare sight. Sister M with no tongue.

The Big day. Nan & Pop's 60th Wedding aniversary.

 It was only a half surprise as someone let the cat out of the bag. But it was still a surprise as to who was actually coming. Nan and Pop walked into the church hall to the wedding March played by me.

 After a very yummy lunch of soup and sticky date puddings, it was time to cut the cake.

Then it was family photo time.

You will notice the Master J isn't exactly happy on the floor. He was feeling rather overwelmed by all the girl germs.

Thats all folks.


My First Photo Club Meeting

25th August, 2010

This is my new hobby. For my birthday I purchased a new camera a Nikon D5000. Spent way to much money but hey I don't do it that often. So with this new u-bute Camera that I don't know how to work I went along to the Shoalhaven Photography Club. And what a night to go for the first time. They held a workshop on low light. Here are a couple of my photos from that night.

Who knew you could do such cool things with a camera. So....................

When we had no power for 60 hours, to fill in our time before bed we went for a drive and had a play with a few things.

Clay Animation day 3

19th August, 2010

Well it was the final day of animation. Today rather than working just with clay, the kids used different mediums. Master J & L painted a back drop for their mini movie and used bionicle men.

 The world created by Masters J & L

 Miss E kept her self busy with painting

We are still waiting for the finished product to be put onto a dvd for the kids. hopefully we shall have it soon.

Baking with Ruby and Leonard

August, 2010

I know I am seriously behind in my blogging but better late than never.

Miss E borrowed the book  "Ruby and Leonard and the Great Big Surprise" from the library, which then led us to a baking frenzy. Below are the results of our own great big surprise.
