Just another day in Redland Bay....perfect!

Luca and Zac taking it all in, they have developed a love for the bay too.

"Take a stroll to the nearest water's edge, remember your place" Lyrics to one of the most beautiful songs I know "Follow the Sun" Xavier Rudd , when I am feeling lost and confused this song always makes me feel better. The video to this song was actually shot on Stradbroke Island and that Island is in our view from where we walk. :-)

Luca, melting my heart, came and sat next to me and put his arm around me....

A little hill climb we do to get a better view...and some rare brotherly love between Luca and Zac

 Rhys was a big sleepy head and missed out, luckily he woke up when we got to the pub for a play.

This GORGEOUS dog wanders along the bay all the time, up and down up and down she goes. He name is Molly!
One of my favorite things to do on a Sunday afternoon is take my boys for a bike ride/walk/scoot along the bay side. I love the time of day just before the sun goes down, I never ever get tired of being by the water, its where I feel the happiest. After we're finished we quite often head to our Local Hotel (pub), they have a great playground there that the boys love and there is always lots of kids to play with and sometimes a band playing. I can sit back with a glass of wine whilst watching the boys have fun and relax....blisssssss

happy easter

I am so in love with this little ceramic bunny.

I bought some brown wooden type grass and made mini nests.

I always enjoy looking forward to upcoming special events such as birthdays and holidays, this year is flying.. and Easter is almost here; so I decided to do a little "Happy Easter" display at the Entry to our home to celebrate and this is it.

bath time bliss

I saw a photograph one of my Facebook friends posted of a beautiful tropical bath and since lovely baths are my favorite treat I thought I should have one too. My boys and I were out and about and they picked flowers for me and I can home and added some candles and a glass of wine and it was perfect.....Blissssss

skate park



my 3 dare devils

luca-deep in thought

the boys getting in some shade watching bigger kids do tricks

You probably know by now that I have 3 young boys, am a girlie girl by nature but every now and again I love to hang out and do "boys stuff" too. Over the past 8 weeks at least, we have had mostly rainy days and this particular day was nice and sunny so I decided to get the boys out of the house and take them to a place they love the most "the skate park"!

mum's birthday surprise

I was in charge of organising her cake and fortunately I have a friend who makes beautiful cakes at a great price.

Mum and I

My sister has a young teenage boy that she knows who is a part-time DJ, he did a great job on the day and my littlest boy Rhys loved getting in there and giving it a go too. ;-)

Happy Birthday Mum xx

Mum and a few of the grandchildren dancing and having fun with the fog machine.
My Mother was up visiting us in Brisbane from NSW and it happened to be the same time as her birthday, so my sister organised a lovely little surprise party for her. Here are a few pics from her day.
