Our Summer of Frugality

Share the joy

We had another awesome no-spend day today, as is my goal most days it seems!  Luckily there is heaps to do around here so it is quite easy to plan adventures that keep Ethan amused and happy.

Today we borrowed our landlords kayak which has a child’s seat (score) and drove to the dock at the end of our street to head up river for the first time.  It was stunning, I can’t believe we have lived here for 7 months and never been on the river.  The quiet was astounding and surprising considering how close we live to the city.  The river was warm and alive, we saw mullet jumping, herons diving and many elusive bait biters that Ethan couldn’t quite get in the boat.  It was a glorious paddle with much precious time with my boys.
