Yes, she really is as good as she looks.

......And the livin's easy.

We had our first truly beautiful day last weekend and were fortunate enough to be out on the boat!

It made for a glorious day out skiing, wakeboarding, swimming, and fishing.

After the water sports, we put out the fishing rods with middling success. We ended up catching several fish and saw multiple schools of fish jumping out of the water. Many beers were consumed to further this pursuit.

A beautiful day for relaxing on the boat

As we left the boat on the dock, smiles were all around from the afterglow of the day's awesomeness. In addition to the pure fun of skiing, wakeboarding, and generally bombing around the river, we also had the passive bonus of getting to see more of the beautiful Kuring-gai National Park from the water. We look forward to many more rockin' boat days over the upcoming summer months.

The days are getting longer as spring rolls in. I was able to catch this sunset last night.

Drive fast and leave a trail of wreckage in your wake

Zoom Zoom!!!!! This past weekend we went go karting to celebrate our mate Debs’ birthday. Fun was had by all and no one ended up crying. Win/Win.

Chris explaining the finer points of driving victoriously to Amy

This was an excellent birthday activity and really highlights the better parts of being a grown-up. If you aren’t going to do all the fun stuff you weren’t able/allowed to as a kid, what is the point of growing up? Ice cream for breakfast, lunch, and dinner? Why not?

We topped the day off with a barbeque at Kat and Webs’ and feasting on a delicious, psychedelic cake that Amy and James made for Debs.

Spring is here

Amy, dropped in the wilderness will now demonstrate her survival skills.

Spring is finally awakening in Sydney and to take advantage of the friendly weather, Amy and I recently took a hike through Ku-ring-gai National Park.

It was a nice, easy hike along a fire track, under the clear blue sky. All around us, the wildflowers were starting to bloom, it was a nice bonus to the already beautiful scenery.

There are lots of these hikes around which is amazing as it is so close to Sydney. Just a 30-40 minute drive and you are deep in the bush.
