Climbing Mt Ngungun

The Woody Family Climbed Mt Ngungun

On Sunday 27th June two of our Woody Boys, Dad and Me (Mum) climbed Mt Ngungun at the Glasshouse Mountains for my birthday fun 🙂 It’s not our first time to climb the Mountain, but is the first time I remembered the video camera.

Here is how baby woody is so very cheeky, and such a mountain goat!

I love School holidays, it gives us so much time to experience what we love to do……walking.

What are your favorite holiday outings?

Cheers

One Spoilt Mummy!!

Today Was A Great Day !

It started with Coffee and Fruit Toast, brought to me in bed. Then we went for a walk up Mt Ngungun, and back home for lunch. After a quick bite to eat I drove our oldest boy to his friends house…..who live on a Strawberry Farm 🙂 They gave us a whole tray of strawberries – the best we have ever had.

Then tonight David made Spinach and Cheese Ravioli with Tomato Sauce, and then for afterwards a Black Forest Cake for my Birthday Cake….gosh it was so very yummy, and so naughty !!

Here are the photos of the cake

It was the most yummy cake David has made as yet….a Black Forest Cake for my Birthday. I was so very conscious of how much cream was involved in the cake so had the smallest slice possible……well it was smaller than Davids slice 🙂

Flowers brought yesterday for my BirthdayYesterday Cameron brought me these gorgeous flowers….he wanted to hide them and give them to me for my Birthday which was today, but David said that they needed water and a pot. I was over the moon with the flowers because Pink is my favorite colour, and because they were such a nice surprise.

Cute Kids

Here is Kyle, Baby Woody, helping me to celebrate my birthday, with him wearing his “Pirate Party Hat” that was left over from his birthday party. I think he was hoping that by being that close to the cake he would get a bigger slice !! Actually it was funny to watch him eating the cake because he got to the Berries and one of them must have been tart…the look on his face, Priceless 🙂

Here it says how high Mt Ngungun is, I hope it shows you how high up it is……Will include a video of Kyle Climbing as soon as I find where the video has been stored to on my computer 🙂

All in All it was a great Birthday – spent with loved ones, good food – great quality time together and lots of fun.

Thanks Woody Boys for spoiling me – love you boys.

Mt Beerburrum

Climbing Mt Beerburrum

Yesterday I was mad enough to say “Yes, lets climb Mt Beerburrum”!!! Its not a big climb by any means, but gee is it steep….

Mt Beerburrum

The walk goes fairly quickly, with a few “drink stops” along the way. Actually its the boys that keep me going…I would stop to take photos but the boys were keen to reach the top. I must say that the view at the top is worth the STEEP walk……

 When we got to the tower, it was very windy, so for my piece of mind (and the boys safety) I asked them to sit down. They thought it was the perfect time for Fruit Break 🙂

The view is stunning…you are able to walk around the whole tower looking out over Glasshouse Mountains, to further out and even out to the ocean. Its like a dream……

 

Going back down was so much easier…..we ran most of the way down. I sure felt my muscles screaming this morning, letting me know that they had been worked out.

The walk is hard, short but steep. The view on top – takes your breath away. If you are ever near Mt Beerburrum in Queensland – stop on by and get your walking shoes on.

We actually meet an American couple that were climbing the mountain – well the Husband was climbing with his mate from Brisbane, while the wife was at the bottom waiting for him to get back down. The American man was kind enough to let the boys have a look through his “goggles” (as Kyle calls them) – his binoculars. They must have cost a few pennies because when the boys held it up to their eyes they all stepped back……the view from the mans binoculars brought it all so close the boys thought the trees were going to hit them!!! Wished I thought to take a photo of their faces, priceless…..

So after walking up Mt Beerburrum yesterday, I thought I would take the younger two Woody Boys for a bike ride today.

I walked while they rode to the local football field. Which is a fair distance from our house…Yep – I am sure pushing my body limits this weekend. I had a theory behind all my madness, To Wear the boys out.

It WORKED!!! They were all in bed by 7.15pm tonight and asleep by 7.30pm – how will I pull up tomorrow? Well that is another story….  🙂

How was your weekend spent?

Bush Walking

Our Gorgeous Walk To Mt Ngungun

Yesterday was such a perfect day – sunny but not too hot. So much so that I dragged hubby out of the house and our three younger Woody Boys to go for a Bush Walk upto Mt Ngungun.

Here are some of the photos of the most amazing place on earth 🙂

The view on top of Mt Ngungun is stunning….we can actually see our house from sitting on a rock at the top of the mountain…

This is woodys house!!

I zoomed in to capture our house from the peak of Mt gungun. I was amazed that sitting up there and looking down – how many houses are now in Glasshouse Mountains.

To think that over a year ago I sat up on that very spot and said to Nicholas “Gosh its beautiful up here, I wished we lived at Glasshouse Mountains” – and then it came true. So be very careful what you wish for…the Universe provides every single time!!

I love Bush Walking and am so looking forward to when Woodys House hits the road in our new bus, and we get to see Australia.

How was your weekend best spent?

Cheers

From The Woody Boys

Here Is A Video from Two Of Our Woody Boys…

I have posted this video here on Woody Boys before, but this time I have edited the music/video so that you can hear the boys speak about the “Gratitude Rocks”

Stay tuned for more – in a week or two our third boy who is 11 years old will have his idea ready to go, with a website set up. His idea is pretty amazing, even if I say so 🙂 I am proud of how my Woody Boys think.

Have you got a proud moment to share? Please comment and let me know how proud you are of your children.

Cheers

Climbing Mt Ngungun At The Glass House Mountains

Taking Two Woody Boys Up To Mt Ngungun…

After walking around and seeing all there is to see at Eumundi Markets, for quite some time this morning with a great friend, I decided to be very crazy and head up to Mt Ngungun at the glass house Mountains.

Seen as how we live right in front of the mountain, and I mean that – we are with walking distance from the base of the Mountain –  I decided to brave the weather conditions, the mosquitoes (they are so very bad at the moment) and take two of our woody boys with me.

As soon as they unpacked their bags, got changed out of there uniforms we headed off on foot. Within minutes of getting down the road it looked like it was going to bucket down, it even started to sprinkle. But I was determined to get my exercise today, and spend some quality time with Nicholas and Cameron.

We forgot to spray with insect repellent – oops – will remember next time, so they were having a great feast on all three of us.

Considering Cameron is only 8 years old we didn’t do to bad….He could easily keep up with me, and even at one stage I had to tell him to slow down.

Nicholas being the billy goat that he is, was way ahead of us. I think that I posted that last time we went up to Mt Ngungun how quick he was 🙂

Me being that much older took a bit more time, but I was very happy with myself. This time I could walk up without stopping, and that’s amazing because we almost made it to the top. The only reason we did not keep going was because it was getting late, and the clouds were starting to come in really dark. I was also a bit concerned – if it got dark, there was no street lights and all three of us did not think about a torch.

All in All it was a fantastic way to spend our afternoon, taking up a fair bit of time. I think the boys are keen to go back again which is good because I forgot to take our camera and I really want to take a photo of their smiling faces as they climb. They both were very proud of themselves and so they should be – its not a very hard climb but its also no picnic. It uses muscles that they have not used before, so tomorrow will be interesting!

Wonder how many I times I will hear in the morning –  “I am too sore to walk to school, I am too sore to get out of bed, I am too sore to get my bag packed – so can I stay home?” 🙂

What A Climb Mt Ngungun Is

A great way to end a Great day.

Looking forward to making it all the way to the top once again, and kick my butt if I forget the camera again 🙂

How did you spend your day?

Cheers
