Christmas Day

It rained all day and there was even thunder and lightening but it was still warm enough (just) for shorts and a trip to the beach.

Isabel’s favourite present is a microphone that can make her beautiful songs sound like a cacophony of strangled cats. It is not my favourite. We also had a birthday celebration and a cake decorated by a 3-year old…

And back to the beach on Boxing Day.

Swimming at Coolum

We recently had a weekend away at Coolum on the Sunshine Coast and did all sorts of stuff like checking out the local markets and wandering the beaches and streets and catching up with friends.

But Isabel’s favourite bit was jumping into and swimming in the pool…

Bouncy Castle

The local Children’s Fair was yesterday so we had some quality Daddy/Izzy time.
We did the Bouncy Castle, farm animals (no touching the grubby things), croquet, fire engine, police, dancing, pasta necklace, hunt the dinosaur…

Two wheels…

A morning trip to the beach with coffee and ice cream and seashells and sand…

ImageFollowed by a swing.  Both the “baby swing” and the “person swing”…ImageAnd a trip to the bowling green for a cycle on two wheels.  No stabilisers (trainer wheels) but a parental hand close by.  Iz has got the hang of pedalling but that is about it currently.
