Sunday is FUNDAY

Yep at our house on Sunday there is a strict NO WORK policy.
The day is for the three of us to be together and do fun family things.
So today we 'tootled off' to the Blue Mountains to one of the National Parks.
We went to Jelly Bean Pool (now dont get excited it's not a pool full of jelly beans...but hey wouldnt that be good! OR Chocolate Pool...)Oh i digress..... ANYHOO
Jellybean Pool is nestled at the foot of the mountains and i can remember going there as a young 'whipper snapper' with mum, dad and sis.
Here is Sam and I at the top of the walk down...Sam looking totally unimpressed to be having his photo taken and maybe because we just told him we have to walk all the way down there...and then back up! LOL.

This is the pool. It's truly gorgeous and soooo peaceful..oh except for noisy little boys yelling out "Oooh i wanna go over here. Oohhhh can we catch some fish.."

The walk back up...see my boys up there...notice im lagging behind??? Hey someone had to take the photos! *wink*

A little bit of a history lesson in the caves, LOL. (sorry the 2nd pics a bit blurry)

My men on a rock ...seriously what else can i say about this photo other than i love it.They were having a ball.

Sam the 'Tracker' as he called himself, and i off on our journey.

BUSTED! Now what do you think id been doing in those bushes? C'mon we are all friends here..and when you gotta go...well you gotta go! LOL.

At the end of the day stop for a short nap in a rock (or at least pretend you are napping)....

....and then head to subway for a cookie!

Thanks for reading about our day out.
I hope you all had a gorgeous weekend whatever you did and that your week ahead is full of happiness and pretty stuff.

Im off now to rest my weary legs :)

Love and pink kisses

Shann xo

Hi Shannon,
Looks like you all had a great funday Sunday!. Love the name of the pool, I wonder how many kids (before they actually see it) think it's made with jellybeans!
Take care,

Hi Shann,

Looks like the perfect family day. It is so much easier for men to go in the bushes than women. LOL!!!

Gosh, it looks like you all had a good day. Was it cool...I see your jacket. I guess I noticed since it's so darn hot here.

Hi Shann,
That outing looks like a lot of fun, next time can I come along?

The jelly bean pool sounds lovely. Hmm, maybe they have a creme brulee pool right next door - gee, I'd never get out of there ;)

Love the men on the rock picture - sure is a keeper!

Hi there Mrs Smiley :)
Did you get my e-mail? Just wanted to confirm your address.
It was so daughter went thrifting today and she found something that she said I could use in my swap. I am going to send it along with my stuff but it is an extra goodie from my girl. I think I have her addicted to my blog and my blogging friends too LOL
