Jenolan Caves

At the end of January we spent a beautiful weekend up at the Jenolan Caves.  It is such an easy and fun getaway from Sydney.  We stayed in the Jenolan Cabins, which were cosy and in such a picturesque spot. 


 Bright red parrots and several wallabies were our neighbors for the weekend.  The kids loved running around the rolling green hillsides.  I was a little nervous about the "eco toilets" but am happy to report that they were not at all unpleasant.  

The only good thing about having a little baby who wakes up before the sun is that you get to see some gorgeous sunrises. 



The landscape in this part of the Blue Mountains is so pretty.



Of course the reason we made the trip was to see the Jenolan Caves.  We took guided tours of two different caves.  The temperature inside was a cool 13 degrees (c).  We weren't prepared for that!  The kids were fascinated by the giant stalactites and stalagmites. 




The Jenolan Caves were magical and we had such a great weekend up there.  Looking forward to many more weekend getaways during our final months in Australia.  So much gorgeous country to see here.

We're Back

Well, we're all safely back in the land down under.  The kids (as always) were great on the flight.  The passengers sitting around us complimented us on how well behaved they were and what good travelers they are.  I think I might be on to something here.  Load them up with yummy snacks, fully charged ipods, comfy clothes and put them to sleep in an airplane seat.  The novelty of it all makes them forget about tormenting each other!  If only it could be like that at home  . . . .

Anyway, we were so busy while in America that our 2 Year Expativersary passed by without any recognition.  Hard to believe it has been 2 years since we embarked on this adventure.  Sadly, it will be coming to an end in about 4 months time.  Time to make a list entitled "Things We Must Do Before We Leave Australia." 

Any suggestions?
