Holiday Fun

Only three days into our two weeks of school holidays and a very relaxed feeling is spreading over our household.  Inclement weather has kept us housebound thus far  but we're all enjoying later than usual bedtimes, resulting in later than usual breakfasts and a fair dose of indoor games.

While the weather hasn't been exactly Queensland-Spring typical, with drizzly rain amounting to very little in the guage for the past few days, the kids have still been entertaining themselves almost peacefully. 

While many families are spending their holidays beachside enjoying the pristine coast and crystal clear water our island nation has to offer, these goons are happy to make do with what's on hand.

They headed off yesterday afternoon, in various states of poor dress.

Some barefoot,

others looking decidedly beach-chic,

others who simply can't be without their boots,

but all looking for adventure...

They found themselves at the closest dam, almost dry, but a change of scenery none the less.

While some tentatively approached the water,

others dived right in...

which made it so very difficult for those serious fishermen amongst us.

Mud-encrusted, cold and wet, they returned home, actually happy for once to hop in the shower.
