Gosh what a weekend. I’ll get straight to the photos.
I had a lazy start to good Friday, getting the opportunity to go back to bed for a sleep in (thanks Mum and Dad!) and not emerging until nearly 10am (woooooo!!) After a bit of coffee and colouring,
we then got set to watch the start of the Brisbane to Gladstone yacht race. From the comfort of our balcony. With snacks.
The kids got such a kick out of it!

After some yummy lunch and some quiet time, we bundled the kids into the bike pram and scooters and…. headed across the road to “our beach”.
That’s mum and dad’s house up there on the far left. Next to the huge block of units.
So yeah, like I said. Our beach. Jules getting his squat on to build up those quads.
Gosh this kid loves any kind of water!!
And Quinn is never afraid to get a bit of dirt in the skirt! (or boardies in this case)
If Darby has a truck in his hand, the world is good.
And Chance always says he doesn’t want to go to the beach because he doesn’t like the salty water and sand, but once we get there, he’s right into it.
It sometimes feels like a lot of work getting the kids across the road to the beach, but it’s always worth it and they always have an amazing time.
We went for a sleepover at aunty Liesel’s house last night, which included a huge stacks-on, meat cooked on the BBQ, and a Lego hunt this morning, all of which Frith would have been proud of. Not many photos taken, as I just wanted to soak it all up.
Now there is faaaaaaar too much chocolate in the house for my lack of discipline at the moment, so I might take it upstairs for Mum and Dad to watch over. I can’t believe how much chocolate the kids put away today (okay, I can)!!
Even though I’m still finding it hard to find joy in my days, I always see it in my kids. They have fun. Every single day. I know it will come again for me, and in the mean time, I will feel snippets of it through them. They truly are gorgeous, spirited kids and I’m so blessed to call them mine.
