Bushwalking Babes

Like the rest of the Canberra population, we've been coming out of our shells to enjoy the outdoors now that the weather is so nice.

A few weeks back we had a day trip to Casuarina Sands for a picnic, a swim in the river and a short walk along the river bank.

Ari and Riker hope the ducks will be interested in whole biscuits.

And they're off!

On the days that I'm at work and Riker is at school, Brian and Ari have gone on a number of outdoor adventures, like this one to Molonglo Gorge. 

You coming or what?

Great views.

An intrepid hiker has to have a rest now and again.

What kid doesn't love to throw stones in the river?

And this journey to Pine Island with stunning wildflowers in bloom.

Hopefully soaking up a love of the natural world to rival his parent's.

I have to say I'm a bit jealous of these peaceful outings to the bush surrounding Canberra. Ari is apparently an awesome little hiker with more endurance than his big brother. Brian is already dreaming of through hikes on the Appalachian Trail with the boys. For now, it's great that we have so many terrific spots on our doorstep to get out and enjoy a walk on the wild side.
