So we went on this adventure yesterday...

A friend of mine had suggested that there was a lovely little cafe/pub in a small town called Mt Perry (about 150km) away. So we hopped in the car and drove up there for lunch yesterday...and found this sign... Hah! Claosed for a private function. Yeah, hindsight is a wonderful thing. Perhaps we should have called LOL
All was not lost...we explored...
And spent lots of lovely time together...


Nat opened her first gate (an important milestone in the lif of any country kid...and more importantly the mum who no longer HAS to LOL)

And we visited the Boolboonda tunnel 'the longest man made unsupported tunnel in Australia'.
So cool. I remember visiting this tunnel with MY mum when I was about Nat's age!


And then I took pics...













And THEN the funniest part...
I got a phone call.
From my sister.
Who was at my house.
LOL
She had travelled the 8 hours, to surprise us, only to be surprised herself!
Have a great week my friends! I am off to have a Chai with my sis (She brings the syrup with her seeing as it is unavaibale in town here!!!!)

Go Nat! It's great when the kids can open the gate! Lachlan is a champ and Michala is on her 'L' plates! lol

Sounds like you had a lovely day even though you didn't get to enjoy the cafe!

Have fun with your sis!
