It's one of those (hot!) days...

And no air conditioning ( well a little portable one..) for this family... Ice packs and fans.. And an electrician out next week! Lucky we have friends with pools.

Tallebudgera beach & Happy Birthday Gaga

Happy Birthday to Gaga down in Sydney! Cheers to one of the funniest and kind hearted people I know.

Here are a few photos from yesterday down at the beach. We met our friends down there for the day. It was a great beach for the kids to swim at. Dyllan especially liked going across the water to the other side "the island" to collect treasure (shells).

Coolum Beach

Today we headed up the coast (about an hour and a bit) to Coolum beach. Kids had so much fun boogie boarding and wading in the waves. Dan went surfing and I went swimming.
One of my favorite things about the beaches here in Australia is the surf clubs. We headed to the surf club to cool off in the air-conditioning and to eat fish and chips. The cafe overlooks the beach and it's super kid friendly. The kids play with the other kids while we can (kind of) relax and enjoy the view.

Ellie the ballerina

This morning Dyllan dressed Ellie. She also taught Ellie the word "pretty". Ellie's going around the house in her tutu saying "pretty, pretty"

This tutu is for 3 year olds... Ellie's not even 2... Haha.

Can you tell where in thai sequence I took away Ellie's pacifiers?! Then which one I replaced it with a peanut butter sandwich? Haha

Birthday surprise!

Well it's only 9:15am, and I'm off to a great birthday start!!

I woke up super early this morning, and Dyllan came into bed with me while Dan was out in a bike ride. I asked her if she would sing me happy birthday and tickle my back.. She declined and instead grabbed my cheeks with both hands and told me "mom, you look like a granny." Just like that. So matter a fact. I asked her why (trying not to laugh).. She told me "because your cheeks are so loose and wiggly". Thanks Dyllan. If I didn't feel old already, you just made me feel old and wrinkly!

Then I got up and came out to the kitchen to this lovely surprise dan left me of Cat food, weeds.. I mean flowers, and candy. And a sweet card and juice.

Ellie threw me a tantrum that lasted all morning and Dyllan found maggots on her chair! Totally disgusting!!!!!

I headed out the door early for work, went to a listing appointment, then came into the office to find my desk was decorated with all my favorite things!! Candy, flowers, and a big banner.

Off to start my day now! Can't wait for what the rest of the day has in store. Here's to bring 32!

Yunny & Lozzo's visit

It was so great having Yunny and Lozzo up last weekend. We spent our days doing coffee dates, walks around Bulimba, watching Dyllans ballet, movies & popcorn, long social dinners, and visiting. We hope to see them again soon.
