photo a day catch up

Finally, the mammoth post you have all been dreading, but expecting!!!
We went away to the beach for a while, and I took ages for me to resize and upload my photos, but I did it - a photo a day for all of was fun!!!

we attended a friends party tonight, fancy dress - obviously! Come us something that begins with the first letter of your name. Nicole, the Nanna in her Nighty and Craig the Clown

a much needed drink for the lawn in this heat wave.
I pump the washing machine water onto the lawn over summer to try and keep it alive.
We are on water restrictions and although we can still water by hand twice a week, we cant use sprinklers - unless we hook them upto the rain water tank.

I love watching this little guy play.
He chatters away to himself (all day!!!!!! its starting to drive me a bit crazy!!!!)
making up stories about what his cars are upto for the day! Listening to his chatter gives you such an insite it to the complete randomness in the way a three year olds mind functions LOL

day 28 / 28.january.2009

Why is it that even though the lawn is really struggling during
the heat that the weeds seem to flourish?

Back to school for the older two

Some peaceful relaxing time for us at home

day 26 / 26.january.2009


It was weird being away and not attending our local Australia Day breaky as usual.
Seeing Nathan sitting reading the paper reminded me how quickly he is growing up too!

Can we go yet? Chad and Isaac waiting to go down to
the beach for one last swim before we pack up to go home.

day 25 / 25.january.2009

We took the new ute 4 wheel driving on the beach upto the Murray Mouth.

Only got stuck twice ! Lots of fun.

On the way back we did some cockling!

day 24 / 24.january.2009

The Daddy's got to spend some quiality time with the other kids at the skate park, while Alison Jacinta and I went for a walk, checked out the shops, market and enjoyed a yummy frozen mango, pineapple and apple slushy!

The 'big boys', aka our husbands, decided they needed to hire surf boards this afternoon.

We got to spend a couple of hours sitting in the beach shelter to get out of the cold wind, on rock hard sand on a smelly beach watching them TRY to surf !!! Can you tell we had fun ... NOT !

day 23 / 23.january.2009

My friend and her kids arrived at the beach house yesterday. Ashley and Isabella (or 'umbrella' as Isaac called her!) loved playing with Jazz! We had a couple of realaxing (suprisingly with two adults and 7 kids!) days before our husbands arrived LOL

While the older kids played on their boogie boards, Isaac had fun with his tractor in the shallows.

day 22 / 22.january.2009

the only two photos I took today! rest time before heading to the beach again

I only took away a few cars, some drawing stuff and a couple of books.

Love how Isaac drew his own roads and then got his cars out to drive on them!

day 21 / 21.january.2009

A super quick and easy lunch before heading to the beach

An afternoon/evening on the beach

day 20 / 20.january.2009

the car packed to the brim - this is what it should have looked like clingy baby, and one 3 year old that refused to sleep today meant that this photo was taken the following morning once I finally got it packed
