There are a LOT of pictures coming up, so brace yourself!
Riding the tractor at the guesthouse where we stayed
Examining a snail shell found on a hike along a gorge
We found a bird's nest too, built right on the rocky side of the gorge - a swallow perhaps?
An evening stroll to the lake
Checking out a spider web shimmering in the sunlight
Throwing rocks in the lake
Sweet Pea enjoyed the feel of the pebbles
Found the world's best stick - with a deep groove down the middle, perfect for rolling pebbles down
Stopping to smell the spring flowers
Taking in the view from atop the castle
Feeding the ducks
Stopping to look up at the trees on a hike up the mountain to a beautiful waterfall
Um, can you tell that I'm absolutely SMITTEN with my new Hipstamatic app for my iPhone?? (Thanks to Anna for recommending it!)
And here are a few more that aren't 'hip':
Making a fairy house
I've realised that my girls don't have enough logs and dirt piles in their lives. Or dinosaurs.
Enjoying a nap on Mummy's back during a hike
Sweet Pea was fascinated by the ducks and swans
