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!
