furry friends| Lake Macquarie, Newcastle and the Hunter pet photography

after participating in ‘pets only’ weekly photo challenge , i was inspired to go back through and have  a look at all of our pets,  and shed a few tears for those who are no longer around for various reasons

first there was paisley cat, who always wanted to be around people, but never wanted to be touched…

then there was zorro, the smartest most beautiful dog in the whole world, who just  loved adventure

followed by cosby, the pug that snored… he was cute in an ugly way    🙂

to our now ever loveable springsteen, affectionately known as “steen”

pets only| i heart faces photo challenge

so it’s that time again over at i heart faces, this weeks photo challenge theme is all about pets

so this is our latest family member “springsteen” who we recently adopted from a PAWS  foster carer, who rescues little doggies from the pound and helps them find new homes. 

he loves cuddles, and long walks, and also likes to dig  holes in my garden 😦   but he is a welcome addition to our family

if you head over to the i heart faces website you’ll find lots of other loveable, furry friends, maybe a few scaley and feathery ones too…

on the road from wollombi

wollombi is famous for its long weekend markets, so on the queens birthday long weekend we decided to go have a look for ourselves

unfortunately, i wasn’t impressed- if you were after second hand bits and bobs than the wollombi markets is for you, i personally prefer the handmad nick nacks and things you don’t see anywhere else

but nethertheless we had a lovely day out, the drive is a very pretty one and we made lots of stops to take pictures of the scenary, although there were a few odd sights along the way too…

fun at the park | Lake Macquarie, Newcastle and the Hunter child photography

after a week of rain, we were busting to get out and make the most of the sunshine, so piper and i headed off to the park with her little friends, lilly and ella.

unfortunately, the wind was icy so it was only a quick visit and then off for some babycinos
