the bush and the walk

Simple, yet adventurous. I love what you can teach them. What they discover themselves. I grew up doing the same with my mum. It is a piece of her I am giving to them; the love of the bush, and the walk. 

The fresh air, the questions, the laughter, even the struggling little legs, (that make their way onto my shoulders), and the turtle pace. All of it I love.

I want to share a thing we have. I have no idea why I started it. Might have been a tantrum one day in the car that made me think of it. We mothers come up with random things at times of need. This is my random thing. 

Over a speed bump, in the car, the little people have to put their arms up. I told them it feels better. Just like a rollercoaster ride. So much better with your arms up in the air. When we went for our bush walk, we walked up "snake hill," and they were so excited when they saw the bump in the road. 

Arms up! 

I hope you enjoyed your weekend as much as we did. 


  1. What a beautiful bush walk. I love your photos, and the speed bump one is sweet. I might have to borrow that one for our car trips.

    Have a beautiful week, Hayley

  2. Haha, that is so funny...the roller-coaster! Love it! Yep, the things we come up with in times of desperation.... We did the headland walk today. So beautiful. Lunch on a rock overlooking the ocean. I needed a bit of one on one time with the big boy, and it was soooo lovely. I miss those times and it reinforced the need for us both to have that now. Thanks for the bushwalking inspiration during our chat yesterday! xx
