It's been soooooo long

Yes it has been since I last posted....but with Facebook so convenient a-way to update most people, I forget we even have this blog.

Meanwhile since last post....sooo much has happened. Here's some of it....

Jacob turned 1...and has since started walking and a multitude of other fun things.

We had a fabulous 2 night family holiday to Heron Island.

Attended 2 family weddings....2 60th celebrations.....1 funeral

Celebrated our 2nd Christmas together.

Yes we did!

Enjoyed a true blue Aussie Day

Jacob discovered ice cream.

Seen our house build project get to this exciting stage.

B2B...A Family Event!

A couple of weeks back we entered the local Botanic to Bridge Fun Run. 8 kms is not exactly what I would call fun! But the boys did run it and I walked a steady to turtle's pace behind them...they beat me by a full half an hour! A beautiful morning to be out and about though with 4000+ others. Thanks to the Port Authority for organising the day. We'll be back!

Love a good beach day

Queen's Birthday weekend rolled around and we had grand plans to go away for a few nights. But due to having a sick little boy we decided to stay home instead and planned a couple of day trips. One was with family friends to the beach for a couple of hours on Her Majesty's birthday. The sun was shining, breeze was gentle, company was fun and the sand,  oh so tasty! And BTW...the fish were nibbling! And as evidenced by one of the photos below, JVI did catch one!

A great way to spend a public holiday....sand, sun, splashing!

First Mothers' Day

What a special day of thankfulness and quiet celebration Sunday proved to be.
My first Mothers' Day was spent with my two favourite boys eating a yummy breakfast, enjoying a full vase of fresh, happy gerberas, playing and a relaxing walk on the beach in the afternoon. Oh yeah...and a treat of KFC chips. Such a nice day with plenty of time to think back over the last year and remember, with a smile, all the bits of being a 'Mum' that I have so enjoyed.
Like....reading stories, seeing the developmental milestones reached, bath time, the first sleep thru, giggles and laughter, swimming, family holiday, rolling -rolling-rolling, cuddles, jolly jumper sessions, staring into beautiful blue eyes, shopping for cute little clothes, hearing 'mum mum and dad dad' for the first time, etc, etc, etc.....

I am so grateful to have the opportunity to be a Mum and to have such a wonderful co-parent in J and such a delightful son in j.

First Family Holiday

Last week we managed to get away from busy Gladstone to spend 5 days together at Agnes Water. It was so nice to have time out to enjoy each other and just relax. We spent days sleeping, reading, exploring, swimming and playing. A great first family holiday...and here's to many more in the years to come.

Our pool 
We spent LOTS of time in the water

Which Jacob just loves

Just like he loves his tucker

And walks on the beach

Family shot

More exploring

Love the view

Not the best waves, but Jon had a fun surfing lesson

The boys bonding with books

We found the beach where K's family used to camp back in the 80s

There's still oysters there

Ahhhhhh...holidays...they wear you out!
