Thriving gardens full of colour relax me and help me know I am alive! I love to sit and feast upon the beauty on display and enjoy the variety of textures, smells and colour around me. Whilst in Mount Gambier we made it a priority to share some of the lovely gardens available to explore with our cherubs.
I was delighted to see the children run free, climb trees and enjoy the beauty just as much as I did. I remembered running around and exploring these same gardens as a child and I watched with wonder the excitement in their eyes. I marvelled at how fast time flies and that now I was visiting these places as a parent watching my own children finding the same joy as I did.
My Dad acted as a great tour guide for us and helped the children have a more enjoyable experience. Especially when he took us out to my favourite ice cream shop ever! I have very fond memories of visiting this shop as a child and on every trip to Mount Gambier have stopped at this out of the way ice cream shop.
As you can see on our family holiday pictures so far, we did not spend time living it up in luxury or being extravagant. We enjoyed time together as a family participating in simple activities that provided wonderful memories for us. Although a stay in a resort would have been nice, we are thankful that we were able to have this time together and for family who took care of us and made it happen. We really are so blessed as a family.
