There was certainly a hint of winter in the air this Easter. Perhaps being that little bit later in the month the cold was inevitable, but nevertheless and chilliness aside bbbrrrrr, it was another wonderful weekend in the company of family and friends. So what did we get up to?
We watched some local footy here in town on Good Friday and had a visit from my brother (Hi Xav!). It was awesome to spend a whole entire Saturday at home doing a bit of tidying up around the place and a whole lot of nothing. Though it was entertaining watching Xav and Cam knock off three bottles of red whilst the footy was on tv on Saturday night. D and M central! ha ha! Easter Sunday was a great day out at the farm with some of Cam's extended family and we had a peek at the Molyullah Sports Day which is a great Easter Monday annual event in these parts. This was and always is a fantastic day for the kids and catching up with everyone from in and around the town; and who doesn't love watching all the old boys showing off their machinery in the big Tractor Pull Competition.
I didn't get my camera out as much as I had anticipated, but for the times that I did, this is what we got up to...
Easter Sunday afternoon down in the paddock for a bonfire. Half a dozen or so locals stopped by whilst we were camped there to say gday and have a tipple or two. All of them asked if the fence was live before they embarked on over. Cams dad assured them it wasn't on this particular occasion and not one of them believed him. Ha ha!! Well renowned as a bit of a joker in the area it would seem. Entertaining non the less watching them all very tentatively hurdle over that wire though.
I love this one.
The kids, and I for that matter were very excited to head down to the cattle yards and see a calf being born; well pulled out but wow!!! How appropriate at Easter.
One of the old school 'fair' games at the Sports Day. The old 'Catch The Rat'. (Though it was a toy car) Lots of fun for the kids.
Cant stop this one on the jumping castle.
The Tractor Pull. Such a farm boy is Hugh. Probably explaining it all to his cousin Ava.
