I've been seriously floored with a head cold that won't let me breathe - even when I take anti-histamines, spray stuff up my nose and have a very hot, steamy shower. Kind of makes it hard to think, and sleep (and therefore think), let alone write!
So, sorry about the delay (and lack of posts this past week or so). Let's catch up!
The Big Fella's parents, Grandma and Grandpa, live two states away, but their families are in and around the capital of this state. They tend to come up a couple of times a year, and this time they made the effort to come and see us in our new, semi-outback town.
(By the way, we've been here for a whole year tomorrow!)
While they were here, we decided to take them to our most notable attraction - a gorgeous waterfall in the hills we see on the other side of the highway. It takes about 45 minutes to drive there, then almost an hour to walk in to the waterfall.
Unfortunately, it was rather chilly in the water (I couldn't even stand in it, it felt pretty much icy) so no swimming was enjoyed this time, but the views were great and we all enjoyed a bit of rock crawling.

|The Little Big Fella decided he needed Blue Bear on the trek. You can tell by the lack of stuffing in his neck that he's well-loved :-D|
I got to carry the Little Big Fella for short bursts along the track as well, but where it was pretty flat.
I have to take this moment to brag a little too, because I'm so proud of the changes I'm seeing from all the effort I've been putting in.
Last time we came to this waterfall, I remember having very little breath by the time I reached the top, and my butt was killing me! But this time I got to the top, only just out of breath, and that was having run up and down a few sections so I could get some of these photos. My butt was fi-ine :-D
Yay me!!! And thank you to Holly and my online friends from Fit Yummy Mummy for helping me get to this level of strength and fitness!
|This is the crossing on the way to the falls - gorgeous in its own right!|

|Why, Little Big Fella! What a big bubble you have!!!|
|The Little Big Fella loves to hit the bubbles that are already floating in the air. Because of the awesomeness of these bubble wands, he created a big one at the same time!|
