Islwyn has taken over photography duties from me lately.  Here is a collection of his recent photos.
Some friends invited us out to their camp one night and they had all kinds of fun things to ride around on.

Melbourne and Installation

We spent last weekend in Melbourne.  I took the kids to Fitzroy Gardens to tour Captain Cook's Cottage.  There is Captain Cook in the background.

 We also walked around a lake in Melbourne.  We got to see some interesting birds and flowers.
 Jonathan was installed on Sunday. 

 Elijah and I looking on.

A day in the Grampians

We went for a drive to the Grampians today.  We are so fortunate to live so close to such a beautiful place. 

And took a walk to view Broken Waterfall (in the background)

hmmm a hollowed out tree

On the way home we saw our first wallaby in the wild!  It stopped and looked at us for a minute.

We made it to Australia!  This is the view out our living room window.  Those are pelicans!  We are right in town so we can walk to all the services as well.  We love it so far.

Elijah taking a walk on the bike/footpath that goes by our house and runs along the river.

Minnesota Visit

 We got to spend a couple of days visiting my aunt and uncle at their lake house in Minnesota.  Thanks so much for having us Vicky and Al!
Here we are on the pontoon and Clive and Elijah lounging by the lake.
 Jens gets to drive the pontoon!
 Islwyn and Amund took the kayak out on the lake.

 Elijah enjoyed playing the piano with Vicky.
