We were matched up with an awesome family who live about 4 hours from Perth on their wheat and sheep property. In short, we had such a great time with them that I had always hoped we could return & at Easter time I got my wish.

 

Not only did we spend the Easter weekend with our friends but also some of their extended family as well…..in total there were 7 adults and about 14 kids (except we hardly ever saw the kids, they were busy on motorbikes, go karts etc).

We saw new baby lambs with their mums, collected sheep poo from the shearing shed yards, used heavy farm machinery to have another go at our leaking hatch, got on the back of motorbikes for about the first time in 20 years, solved hand drawn mazes, went out after rabbits and foxes, went walking through the bush to Narnia, ate some beautiful food, planned a series of books based on crazy uncles and laughed lots and lots.

You know when you have such fond memories of an experience and then wonder if it was really as good as you remember it?……well this revisiting really was amazing and we are so grateful once again to spend time on the farm with our lovely friends and their families.

J, the bet is lost…..the corrugations won and the hatch is leaking again…..you get big hugs for trying, I thought that you had it beat!!
