Scrapping Fodder....

Bwahahaha!!!

The kids and I drove around the other day checking out the river...we had heard that it was actually flowing (which counts for exciting round these parts LOL) so of course we had to go too... I love how the little dirt road down to the weir becomes a major thoroughfare when it rains, the whole town slowly makes its way down to the riverside to check out the action.

As we were driving I found some pretty spots, which the mummy and scrapper in me was bursting to take pics of my kidlets in....

So today was fine (hot, but fine) and we headed out...
I had this shot TOTALLY planned in my head, and it was RUINED by the HUGE ants nest right under the sign. Darn kids were too scared of being bitten by the ferocious meat ants to pose...where is the commitment people???

They were pretty keen on the bridge...but I was too chicken to let them venture too far. There is only one or two trains a week through on this stretch of track, so we were safe...I promise!





We found lots of interesting bits and pieces along the way...



The kids soon grew weary of the train tracks, so we went down to the river again to check out the water levels...





Everything is suddenly SO GREEN!


















So now I am happy...just need to somehow get rid of the ants nest near MY sign, and repose that first photo LOL

Geez let me know next time when the river is running and I'll come in and have a look!! Hehe The things you do when there is nothing better to do. Love your photos though - especially the train track one. And your kids are such good little models for Mum.
