I can’t believe it….2 years ago today at 8:13am and weighing in at a whopping, 4.545kg a little ray of sunshine came into the world, his name is Hugo and he continues to be the sunshine in our lives every day. Happy birthday beautiful boy, Mummy and Daddy love you with all our hearts xxxx
For Hugo’s birthday we celebrated two ways, firstly we took him away to Mudgee for 3 days to stay on a working Merino sheep farm (www.bamackhomestead.com) and then I had a little morning tea party in the park with some of his little, and big, friends.
Hope you enjoy the pics of our fun xx
I was totally in love with this china set that was in our cottage, but I was to worried I might break it, so we just admired it instead.
afternoon tea was waiting for us when we arrived….this is what was left

Hugo’s first go on a trampoline

our sweet little cottage for the weekend
Scarecrow in the fruit orchard….Hugo was not a fan
Hugo and his new friend Sally, she followed him around the farm all weekend
This little dog was so gorgeous, she followed us around everywhere. If we were in the cottage then she wasn’t far away, either on the verandah or under the house. On our second day we did a tour around the farm with the owner David, she followed us almost the entire way. Hopped in the truck for the last part as it was getting a little cold. David said that she does the same thing every time he takes people on a tour, runs ahead of the truck and sits at the gate and waits for you. All the animals on the farm are very friendly and obviously love having visitors.

Sally was a big hit with the whole family xx
It was so cold I had on two jumpers and a down vest….brrrrr. Keep up buddy
Two of the rams on the farm (there are four)….separated from the ladies so there isn’t any funny business going on
they are converting this train carriage into 2 bedroom accommodation with en suite. It was sitting in a paddock on another farm for years (I think they said about 20) and it weighs 21 tonne.

story time in front of the fire-place
relaxing in front of the fire and getting a back tickle from mummy, does it get any better?
Our lovely host Julie taking the boys for a walk
Rusty, the 12yr old labrador. Poor puppy has arthritis so he doesn’t get up to much, but if you drop a scrap of food…he is there in a flash
On our last day, we had such a great time and will go back for sure.
Our weekend at Ba Mack Homestead was amazing, David and his wife Julie were wonderful hosts. We had dinner with them on the Saturday night and Julie put on the most amazing spread, roast lamb, roast veges, steamed veges and home-made ice cream with home bottled preserved fruit from the orchard. If you want to get away and spend some time in the country then head to Ba Mack.
