Girls at the farm

We're counting ourselves lucky to have missed out on the intense storm activity hitting Sydney and surrounds these past few days. It's been cold and windy here in Canberra but nothing compared to what others are experiencing.

J & W and their grand kids invited us all out to Mount Nanima today for a "day at the farm". 

Jennie and A demonstrated the art of pony riding to perfection.

 This was Ella's first ever pony ride....

Abi can be shy with people in new situations but she had no qualms about making friends with Archie the Shetland pony......

 .... and going for a ride too of course.

A and E seemed to really hit it off (kindred spirits I think!). A's Mum (Jennie's daughter) is making history in Turkey at this very moment as part of her Gallipoli 100 Surfboat Race team. They're making their way to ANZAC Cove in time for the centenary commemoration - after starting at Eceabat in the Dardanelles. 

Ella loves chooks (she has a few favourites at her school's Ag Centre) and was thrilled to find two eggs in the chook pen (for their lunch!).

A & E spent most of the late afternoon in the home garden running Jennie's "Bouncer" ragged and neither of the girls wanted the fun to end (although I think Bouncer may have been relieved to be put to bed eventually).

Driving out and back to the property gave us lots of opportunities too for spotting sheep, cows and "horsies"...a perfect day as far as the girls are concerned.
