 We took some time out of our busy life for some much deserved R & R.

Booked two nights away on the coast only two hours drive from home.
We stayed on the Gold Coast at Surfers Paradise.    

Was not easy to organize a time to suit everyone so we just took off.
With the boys working different times and days and me wanting to spend some much needed time together as a family l booked two nights away then told everyone to fit in.    We just vegged out was great!

Arrived home today in time for son No. 4. (Hayden) to go to work tonight.
Son No.3. (Lachlan) to house sit his friends house for the night.

Looking forward to another weekend away soon.

How they grow up and their lives no longer fit into ours so easily.


  1. Glad you took time out for yourself, it is so easy to get caught up with all the happenings going on and not take time out. We all need to do that occasionally, sometimes it is not real easy to do that.

  2. It looks like a great place to relax and catch up with family. I saw a comment you made on 2 Full Bags blog regarding the Grow Your Blog Party. Since I was one of those who did not see this until after the sign up I thought I would take a moment to visit those blogs that missed the sign up. As your blog logged I immediately knew that I would love your blog - quilting, cross stitch and trips to the beach. Have a great day, Toni (
