Great outdoor Challenge

As part of the great outdoor challenge, today I took along my camera on our usual nature walk and snapped up a few memories...



Dandelion love

 Fairy love

Blow!

Our Kalala (Koala) friend

A pair of Galas flapping and twittering away


A pair of beautiful Lorikeets fluttering around. Aria actually gasped when she saw these!


Saying hello to the beetles on the path. It looks like she's squashing it from this angle, but she's not! I can't believe how quickly she just goes and touches any beetle or insect and says "hawo" then "babah". She obviously hasn't yet been conditioned into freaking out about them like most people do!


When we got back from our walk we picked some fresh lettuce for lunch - yum!


Later on in the day we went for another Koala walk. Aria was chatting away to the trees, flowers, grass and birds. She also kept saying "nose" (meaning gnomes) and pointing to little nooks and crannies. I love the pure joy in her face in this shot. She becomes so energised when out in nature (as does her Mama!)
