The Durants from the north came to visit! Kev's brother Brett and his beautiful girls, wife Val, daughters Haylee and Kacie, took a road trip from Mackay QLD all the way to Canberra. They spent the long weekend with us and it was great. We spent Saturday out on the town. Started with Questacon, then the Floriade flower display, Mt Anislie lookout and an Army concert
at the War memorial "Beat the retreat". All of it was great fun and so much more to be with family. Thank you for coming to visit Brett, Val, Haylee and Kacie, we love you guys!

Aleeya turns 30
While the big guys manned the BBQ, the little guys were mainacs in the backyard. The little girls searched for the cat, Ernie (who didn't hide successfully), while the Ladies leisurely sat back, ate and drank. Kev did a great job putting togehter a birthday BBQ, with chicken swekers, pork ribs, salads, BBQ corn and hotdogs for the kids. The day was stunning and now the day after is foul, so we picked the right day for it! Thanks to my friends and family for the wishes and pressies, I love you guys!
September has always been a big month for the Durants, with 2 birthdays and a wedding anniversary. So this September was bigger than ever. We had 2 great opportunities to dress up. Firstly our friends Kel and Naomi had a beautiful wedding on the 2nd and they had a perfect day for it. Secondly the Air force contingent of Kev's course had a cocktail party, another wonderful excuse to dress up and go out without the kids. But snuggles are always welcome at the end of all the busyness.
We visited Dubbos Western Plains Zoo in the July School Holidays. It is 5 hours drive north of Canberra. It's an Amazing place with all the Aussie animals and so much more. The zoo's goal is to help breeding of endangered animals, so they will be around for everyone to enjoy, always!

Our little kitty, Ernie. He is five months old
full of mischief. Shoey and Ernie are the best

Shohanna knows how to whip up a tune.
The hairbrush microphone is good enough for now.
Dad's mode of transport to and from work. He is
getting a little chilly in the mornings these days.
