Flags at half mast...

Our National Day of Mourning for the victims of the Black Saturday bushfires.
Such a sad and tragic event, to take place in our lifetime.

May the victims find peace and comfort from today, as they slowly rebuild their lives and look to the future.

I love the way we have united and supported the people who have lost everything. Given what we could at their time of need.
It makes me very proud to be an Aussie!

We had a busy visiting day today. We headed up to Mum and Dad's this morning, to drive in the driveway and find a flagpole in the front yard!! A secret they had kept...the kids were very excited about it! So, the flag above is my Mum and Dad's flagpole with the flag at half mast, as a sign of respect.
Mum and Dad live on acreage, so the kids had fun running wild out there.

Here's Ella sweeping up the nuts off Mum's palm tree...

and Zac hiding behind the tree...

Then, onto Grandma's and Grandpa's for a visit, before arriving at Aunty Kel's for a well deserved swim. The water was beautiful, and the kids had a ball. They always do.
They love the pool, and are fast asleep in bed as we speak.
A big day for both of them!

I hope you had a good weekend!

Chat soon,
Chelle Xx
