As the children get older finding time to do this together as a family does seem to become more difficult -- independence is overrated right? But we still reserve most public holidays as family time and the recent Canberra Day holiday was no exception. Traditionally we've done many picnics -- and with Gaynor organising the food this is hardly a poor option -- but I wanted something a little more active so we decided on an adventure instead. Of course, with a three year old amongst the mix one's adventures are a little more subdued than the word might suggest. Nevertheless, since Canberra is situated among such natural beauty, it seemed a shame not to get more up close and personal. The only down note was that Joshua was unable to join us, being laid up with a head cold.
