My birthday weekend at Double Island Point

Mum & Dad, Troy and Danny & Paddy and I all camped for the weekend at Double Island Point. The weather was perfect and it was an awesome relaxing 4 days.

This is us heading off in the car....

Mum & Dad got to take the jalopy.

This is our campsite - complete with Troy's DC sign.

This is where we spent most of our time - the most beautiful lagoon I have ever seen. Paddy played on the edge of the water - lots of digging - Troy did some snorkelling and Dad did some fishing.

Uncle Mister became the favourite over the weekend - mostly because he let Paddy dig up the sand and throw it all over him.

My favourite view from our campsite - my three boys and the water.

Next year I think we need to expand our camp - so lock it in now and come and camp with us for the weekend.

Glow Sticks in the Bath

Danny does bath time and has said he needs some new toys - bath time is getting boring.

Thanks to Pinterest (my new addiction) I found this idea. Paddy loved it and it was really calming too which always helps.

Wallabies got the Bronze

World Cup is a big deal in our house. Our lives revolved around when the Wallabies were playing - at least this time it was on free to air so we didn't have to visit our Foxtel friends every weekend.

Paddy and I made a sign to cheer on the Wallabies for the semi-final game - we even blew up green and yellow balloons.

Caloundra Music Festival

We had a great time - spent the weekend in a unit.

Saw Icehouse, Diesel, Thirsty Merc and heaps of others - even a band playing gypsy disco music....

Who says I don't find anything cool at Garage Sales...


Paddy loves Gram & Poppy's

Paddy goes to my Mum & Dad's every Tuesday when I go to work.

He absolutely runs that house.

He loves sitting in the recliner....


and shooing Poppy's chickens.

Australia Zoo Visit III

For our third Australia Zoo visit Gram came.
He got close with the elephants....

And with a wombat.

And we got the obligatory photo with the crocodile.


We did have fun despite the unexcited faces in this photo

Peter got us camping tickets this year so despite the weather warnings we took the camper trailer up for the weekend.

Friday was a great day - we watched Peter and Paddy had a really awesome time kicking his ball around in the ampitheatre.

Saturday during the day was great - then the rain came. We got back to the camper on Saturday night to unzip the canvas and step in a pool of water. We slept dry but the next morning we bailed. A tractor had to come and pull us out.

Gram & Poppy looked after Paddy the next day and Danny and I went up to watch Peter with Catherine. We thought we would check on the camper trailer - this is what we saw. That's us all alone with the blue canvas.

Eventful to say the least!
