We're Back!

Wow! Holidays can be hard work! hehe, not really, we had a lovely time visiting my sister and brother-in-law with their new baby. But it is always nice to fall into your own bed.

Our trip to Canberra began with a gorgeous walk around Lake Burley Griffen. Miss Chooken loved feeding the swans and ducks. On another occasion, a very cheeky swan ate some Jatz biscuit right out of her fingers and gave Miss Chooken a bit of a fright. They really are the biscuit for all occasions!

The bike and walk-ways around the lake are stunning. It was fabulous to see so many people out walking, running and riding. Great infra-structure that many cities could learn from, and we loved it. I urge anyone who visits to have a look around the lake, it has a lovely relaxed vibe to it.

Ofcourse one of the main reasons to visit the nation's capital was to see my sister and her newly arrived daughter. Here she is at 3 1/2 weeks, a long and lean gorgeous girl (and my sister too, lol).

Along our walk we enjoyed a mini-picnic, complete with a early treat of some Easter eggs. It was the first egg my girls had enjoyed this year and we got lots of chocolate-smiles.

Miss Sunshine loved getting out of the back-pack.

Just chillin-out :)

More pics to come as I adjust to being back home!
