Weather Highlights?
Rain!!! It has been the wettest June on record for most of our state! The humidity it has brought has meant things just haven't had a chance to dry out at all.

This Month:

One market weekend this month in the beautiful Barossa Valley. Our early morning start for the day began with Hot Air Balloons launching right next to the caravan park.
The day continued to be chilly but everyone had fun.

The next weekend it was time to celebrate the Grandtwins Third Birthday "Yo Gabba Gabba" style... PoppyDoc's Castle and Fairy House were great fun complete with Fairies and Knights. The Dragons were for Microman. Nannie Scarecrow made some Yo Gabba Gabba finger puppets in keeping with the theme.

Harvest Tally:
