I LOVE raspberries!!

We've just come back from the Christmas Hills Raspberry Farm, about 40 minutes west of Launceston - just under an hour from Burnie - where we had lunch with my parents, who have been staying with us for the last 5 days, our daughter, son, daughter-in-law and GD, as well as my BIL, SIL and niece.
Main courses were lovely but the desserts - everything had raspberries of course - not that we tried everything because then I wouldn't be here at the computer, but maybe 2 kilometres west of the restaurant in my attempt to walk home! We had a great day and the weather was a huge improvement on our wedding day 30 years ago! Had a giggle as we left as the only people present at our wedding were us, Mum and Dad and my BIL - my how times have changed :)
Addison was her sunny little self - here's my attempt to get a picture of her with her parents and great grandparents.
Hello world!!
She has been saying lots of words and recently called her mum "Katieeeeeeeeeeeeeeee" to get her attention, much to our amusement. Her mum just quietly said "Mum" and she just continued walking around saying "Mum, mum, mum."
Today she turned around to me and said Maamaaa, which brought tears to my eyes! Funny isn't it, I loved being a mum, but being a grannyma is wonderful!

Hi, and thanks for the reminder on those Tassie raspberries! My mouth water's when I think of them. My husband is in Tassie with Sarah this week, I will give him a nudge to look for some at Hillwood.
