30 by 30

On my other blog I have a 30 by 30 list and yesterday I crossed one thing off. It was very spur of the moment, but so worth it.

Us at the falls

Somersby Falls is about an hour from my place and I have been meaning to take my kids there for some time. I move to Canberra next week and decided yesterday to just drive to the falls.

The top of the falls

My daughters were excited because they got to see a waterfall, well the top of it. As we went to go down these black turkey like birds came from everywhere and scared them so much. They actually ran straight back to the car and jumped in. My 4 year old was screaming from the other side of the glass "Mum, get in and run them over! Kill the black birds!" Not quite the reaction I expected from my child who plays with sticks, picks up all kinds of insects, rolls around in dirt and loves all animals. She LOVES reptiles, holding snakes, lizards etc. But apparently a black turkey is terrifying!

I plan on taking them to some waterfalls my sister told me about which are close to Canberra. Hopefully this time they will explore a little more.

When was the last time you just jumped in the car or went somewhere and did something you have always wanted to do or been meaning to do for ages? How often do we just plod along in life and before we know it another year has passed and we haven't done anything different that we wanted to. What will you do tomorrow? This week or this month?
