School holiday fun...

I love the school holidays!  I love not having to leap out of bed each morning, I love not having to do school lunches and the school run...and I love having the kids home and seeing them play together and doing their thing. We chose not to go away anywhere these holidays and it's been so relaxing to just hang out together at home.  We have been doing little day trips here and there though.  We've been to bbq's with family, trips to the park, we've flown kites, fed the ducks, there's been train tracks built all through the house, lots of lego building, water pistol fights in the backyard,'s been fun so far!

I thought I'd share a few pics I've snapped on my iPhone.  I'm loving Instagram at the makes it so easy to snap a quick pic wherever you are!

Here we are about to watch The Adventures of Tin Tin in 3D.  It was a GREAT movie...even Madi enjoyed it which was a surprise!  Definitely worth seeing!

Thomas the Tank Engine tracks have been winding all through the house.  He hasn't been played with in a looooong time!  So good to see the kids having so much fun with it!

Lots of exercise at the park chasing the kite around!

Yesterday we headed to Burleigh Beach.  It was beautiful down there...the weather was just so lovely with a nice breeze coming off the water...

Ayden and Madi built lots of sandcastles...

We couldn't get Riley out of the water.  He was in there from the moment we hit the sand until it was time to go home.  He loves the surf!

So good for Paul to have some time off to relax...

We saw this awesome sand sculpture down there too!

They're just a few of the things we've been up to so far.  We'll be making the most of the next two and a half weeks that we've got left before school starts again!
