Welcome 2018 !!!
Firstly I'd like to say....
Happy New Year!
There are three things I'd like to tell you about. One: our Christmas break. Two: Our house and Three: Creatively Beautify.
Here is a long rundown on our last few weeks.
We had a very relaxing wet Christmas at home followed with a visit to Nana JuJu's house for a late lunch feast. The boys loved riding around on their scooters from Santa. Michael was being a handyman hanging a frame and making a floor for our car boot and I gave Kiara a good wash for her road trip with Judy while Sebastian played with the hose just before the rain came!
The last week of December for 2017 we stayed at a caravan park in Port Macqaurie for 4 nights. While we stayed in a Villa, my siblings and their families were camping. To give their boys a true camping experience they slept on un-powered sites. It sure was an adventure for the kids as it was absolutely pouring down with rain the day we arrived. Setting up the tents in the rain was a real treat (lol) and the thunder storm left most of the ground flooded! The tents were luckily pitched on slightly higher ground but the meals and seating setup were unfortunately under water. This didn't stop them from enjoying their adult time with alcoholic beverages to keep them warm under a tarp wanting to collapse under the pressure of a fantastic storm! It did however add to the excitement of camping and despite the ladies displeasure they all had a good time. I believe it was a good experience and story to reminisce.
The first three days were spent feasting, catching up with family by the pool and watching ten Juveniles run a muck with water pistils and water balloons. We played a secret Santa unwrapping game much like the Double Dice Game which was loads of fun!!
Our last day we decided to be tourists and go for a skate in Port Macqaurie. We took a drive around Westport and wow what big houses do they have! After our brief residential exploration we headed back to town for ice cream (Yum). We eventually found gelato at Blue Cow Gelato and took a walk along the boardwalk all the way to the foreshore. It's a lovely long walk! We stopped by the park in front of Chop and Chill for a while. Sebastian was entertained by a friendly pelican who was waddling up and down the esplanade.
