Surfers Paradise Day Trip

Yesterday we headed down to Surfers Paradise to spend the day at the beach and meet some friend for lunch. The weather was overcast but made for a nice day at the beach- warm with no rain.

We met our friends at a local organic cafe on the beach (complete with a playpen right next to our table for the kids)- let's just say lunch turned into dinner- we stayed that long..

We are heading back down to Surfers Thursday for Easter weekend. We are staying in town Thursday and Friday night, then head to a neighboring suburb (called Labrador) on Saturday afternoon to spend sat and Easter Sunday with dans aunt and uncle.

Looking forward to our weekend away!! (It's funny how Australia takes Easter just as seriously as Christmas- as far as time off and vacations). Work shuts down For a four day weekend. I'm not complaining;)

There's a bug in our yard

Black Swan Hens Night

Saturday night a bunch of my "mum" friends and I got all dresses up in our best "black swan" attire to celebrate our friends engagement (a hens night is the same as a bachelorette party).

We cruised the Brisbane river aboard a yacht till dark. Then went out to the city all dressed up as swans. It was fun getting out with the girls for a night on the town, kid free.

High heels and hair bows

If Dyllan could wear her $2 high heels (from Lionel's trip to Bali) every day.. She would. Today, I let her. Everything takes 3 times as long when she's in her heels.. But some days it's important to just be patient.

Ellie on the other hand hates shoes.. And hair bows.. Or maybe it's that she enjoys taking these things off and throwing them, I don't know.

Either way, they were both super excited to start their day!

Working from home

Ellie's napping inside, Dyllan at my feet.. Can't complain when this is my office.
