Saturday lead us to a little pocket of beauty just outside of Toowoomba, Springs Bluff.
This place never disappoints and as we drove down late Saturday afternoon after the crowds left we jumped out of the car to find the train whistling down the tracks and anyone who knows our little Narah knows the pure excitement and intrigue these big machines bring him.
Narah could just not believe the train was so close to him, so loud and so real, which is just pure joy to watch.
Bridie disappeared in the forest of Bamboo and sat by the springs edge to listen to the Bamboo whispering to her with her roller blades on of course.
Balun ran and collected the biggest sticks and small interesting rocks he could find, taked and talked and asked his most curious questions of the world.
All three would then come together, wander together and chase things together.
The afternoon slipped by to quickly.
Today we spent the day together under the warm sun and it was a lovely one,
A day that was unplanned and filled with Wonder.
It was a delight watching Bridie care and nurture Narah's every little step as he walked over the slippery rocks in the creek, seeing Balun full of hope wondering what surprises and discoveries the next step would hold and Craig and I following them smiling and watching these little people find such happiness in the outdoors.
There were cows walking around us, frogs croaking in the creek, little lizards and tadpoles scattering as they heard us coming and the greenest grass that awaited us around every bend of the creek.
We found old rope swings hung from the trees and little places tucked in a corner of the creek that the kids thought fairies lived there and no one had discovered these places before.
We all ventured back to the car for some food and off we went again exploring for the rest of the day.
We came home with kids pulling everything off the table and creating little works of art with things they had collected throughout the day.
