Time With Our Family

We have just returned home from a few days with our kids. Thursday til Sunday.  We let Nanny and poppy from Bundaberg have a day off from their baby sitting duties and Boo Poppy and Bam ma ( Bernie and I ) did the job. 

 This was a rare treat for us as we live so far away, but this year I have reduced my workload from full time til 3 days a week and Bernie took a day from his annual leave so it gave us some family time.  Usually we drive 6 hours Friday night get there about 10 pm and then drive home again sunday afternoon so it was lovely not to do that. 


We started at a "chic" little cafe called "Oodies" with a big long breakfast. 

Then the Zoo and the park. Bundy has a small free public zoo so nice for kids. 

She has Boo-Poppy wrapped around her little finger.( why boo poppy-? because when we face time her he always play games with her  and he goes BOO  to her. Her other grandfather is Poppy also ,so she calls Bernie Boo Poppy)

Boo Poppy is exhausted....no ... She just wants him to be on the slide with her...LOL

Then we made biscuits

And pressed them



We had a ride  at "W"  (Big W) as she calls it.

Then relaxing with a movie and her new "listening ears". She is travelling on a plane soon and her mum and dad thought this might help because she hates loud noises and loves movies . I don't think it took her long to get used to them - no trial period required- like a duck to water. 


Our son is trying out his new birthday present from us. Lots of cleaning was done.
Our little family 


A busy and fun weekend.  Better get into the sewing now . My side bar just reminded me how close Girls Day in The Country is.
