Birthday lunch

I had a lovely lunch with the family followed by a visit to the National Arboretum which was opened earlier this year. 

Phoebe is three months old. She is beautiful and very settled.

Our lovely little Lois will be two years old on April 26th.

 My birthday lunch at our favourite cafe.

 A trip to the arboretum after lunch to see the views of Canberra. It was windy when we reached the top but the view was great. Stuart borrowed his dad's hat!

This year marks 10 years since the fires that changed Canberra's landscape significantly, with around 500 homes and four lives lost. 

Since 2003, everytime there is smoke in the air, worried Canberrans call the radio stations or the police to find out if there is a dangerous fire here or whether it is a controlled burn.
