Week 3: #MyFamilyandMe The Grampians

It's been a really big week.

Our holiday at Halls Gap has been interrupted by mother nature who became very feisty and unleashed her anger at the Grampians, causing a heatwave and fires that you don't want to be near.

To escape the heat we spent wonderful days by the water, at pools and lakes but once the fires began it was time to leave.

We had to change the plans to celebrate Popps' 8th birthday, but there was still a cake to finish the day.

It's been a week of broken car air conditioner's, driving away from fires, trying to keep cool during 45 degree days and celebrating.

And moments of me and the girls just doing the everyday. Probably the best moments. This year, they are here in full colour, not glossy professional shots, but our moments, captured forever.

For more about this yearly challenge read the My Family and Me details.


  1. I was thinking about you and your family this week being in The Grampians. Such a scary time for people in that area. I am glad you stayed safe. And Happy Birthday to your gorgeous girl.

  2. Did she enjoy the water slides at the Stawell Leisure Centre?
    Hopefully it is reopened tomorrow, cooler weather now so yay.

  3. Oh my gosh, so frightening.
    Were you told you should leave or did it feel like the right thing to do?
    Happy birthday to your beautiful 8 year old.

  4. Very scary with the fires! The heat hasn't been much fun, I didn't even take a family pic this week :/ Happy Birthday to your big girl :)
