Happy Monday everyone!

On Sunday Alex (my partner), Aaron (lil brother), and I went for a country drive. Our mission was actually to find a place called Christmas Creek that my parents use to take us to when we were little. I haven't been there for years, but have very fond memories of the place. My Mum and brothers still go there occasionally, so we got directions from them on how to get there. Unfortunately we never found the place :( We ended up just giving up and heading back home.

We still had a nice day out enjoying the country views though. Next time we will go when my Mum and brothers go so they can show us the way.

We stopped in at Beaudessert Park on the way and had KFC for lunch. This is Aaron having his fill,

and Alex enjoying his.

Alex and Aaron having fun on the rides at the park. Aaron quickly realised that KFC and a merry go round do not mix well.

This is a quick snap I took out of the car window while driving along through the country. There were so many baby animals around as well that we saw.


Here are a couple of photos I couldn't resist putting up -

This cute little guy was out on our out door table the other morning trying to hide from the strong morning sun.

Alex moved him around the side of the house where he was a lot more sheltered and even had some water.

Looking forward to seeing everyone else's Monday photos :) Have a great week!

Lovely pics, Michelle! A good advertisement for KFC in the one of Aaron...LOL Beau still won't eat KFC after his bout with food poisoning. I'll look forward to going with you on the country drive next time.

That little froggy is so cute! I'm glad you and Alex made sure he would be safe from the harsh sun. That's my girl ~

Looks like you had a beautiful afternoon in spite of not finding what you were looking for. I look forward to seeing some photos of the place when you DO find it - it must be a wonderful place to inspire such strong memories.
