Toby’s 6th Birthday

DSC_0018Okay – so I’m cheating a little here with this second post for the night – this is just a very quick one to record Toby’s 6th Birthday  which as I mentioned in an earlier post – we celebrated in Katherine – Katherine Gorge.

The morning started early as all birthdays do in our house – with a wake up and present opening!  Toby was very happy with his new Lightening McQueen Cars, Snorkel set (thanks Ma & Pa for the birthday money which bought the snorkel), Army Men, new audio books from Aunty Beth & Uncle Rod and a long awaited underwater camera of his own (just like big brother Jack!) from Grammy & Grunda – very spoilt!

After a breakfast of pancakes as requested by the birthday boy, we packed down and moved camp into the Katherine Gorge campground which just happened to have the most beautiful resort style swimming pool and free wi-fi and FREE washing machines – awesome campground.   So after a quick swim in the pool (it was freezing!) we had a small family birthday lunch.

    Loving the photos Matt and Jess
    You guys all look so chilled and relaxed! Enjoy your trip! Great photos.
    You have inspired me; I want to do a trip like this; get back to nature and what life is all about – family!
    Take care all of u
    Love Joss and family.

    • Hey Joss, yeah it has been great, and while we haven’t really got ‘back to basics’ as much as we had hoped (that was to be a 3 week trip on the Gibb, a month in Broome/cape leveque and a month down the WA coast all virtually bush camping) it is amazing how easy it has been to do without many of the things in ‘normal’ life. One thing we have all really enjoyed is the close quarters all living in such a small space, who needs huge houses to clean? It takes us 10mins to sweep/mop/make beds/clean kitchen etc. that’s cool!
