Sunset over Lake ALbert

    On my way home from a fun session it was just perfect timing last night to catch the sun going down over the lake. T he super disciplined people that were exercising got to thoroughly enjoy natures splendour last night. Since all the rain has filled the lake to the brim it is looking so good! Last night is was one of the calmest evenings and just beautiful. Here are a few images that I captured. It is a constant amazement to me just how much things can change in just an instant. The position of the sun and cloud coverage certain lets you see glimpses of beauty each and every blink. IMG_9747

time for icecream


We had planned on taking the boys out to tea last night but the floods kinda ruining those plans! So we took them out tonight. We ate at La Porchetta and finished off with an ice-cream.

So you think the boys enjoyed them?IMG_8526IMG_8527IMG_8529IMG_8530IMG_8534signature

day 2 of flooding around town


At the Lake overflow area this is half of yesterday but is usually empty.

half an hour later…

         Ty had been puddle jumping in the front path..



then not half an hour later the toilet started gurgling and we went to investigate…



yes they are flood waters. The street next to our turned into a raging torrent for about 4 hours. A couple of houses got flooded and it reached up to our driveway.



Wagga Floods


Nothing like an entire month of October rainfall in a week to burst the banks on the river and the creeks and the lake.  First few are from around the corner with the kids in the street – knee deep on them and Daz at some points

determined to figure it out


Tyler has been bugging me all day to blow up a balloon. Well I got sicjk of it and kept saying no. Rainy day + bored and determined kiddo = success in the 4yo blowing up his own balloon!




very early start means




It rained  very very early this morning (like started at 400) and Tyler couldn't sleep without his rain ears. Do you think I could find them? nope not for the life of me. So after he finally went back to sleep and I stayed up working, when the boys woke up we make 6 pairs of rain ears and a couple of felt pictures, it was lovely just dong stuff together again!
