Kites, jellyfish and finishing books

Taking an afternoon walk along the beach to look for jellyfish along the sea shore. Those are all kite surfers in the background – the lagoon was teeming with them today.

Trying to (finally) finish my book….but struggling with a baby back biter! I’ve managed to finish off two books I was reading, and DonnĂ© has read two entire books in the meantime.

Being cared for

We are very fortunate and blessed to have families who love and care for us in the way that ours do. We are able to come on holiday, be cared for (and spoiled), and have a time to relax.

Thank you Gogo, Gramps, Granny and Grandpa for opening your homes to us and caring for us deeply. Because you are always there, always constant, it is easy to forget how privileged we are to have you in our lives.

We love you lots.

Toy day

Today was a slow, relaxed, and peaceful day, and Grace took some time to play with all her toys in detail. She watched her new Tinkerbell DVD, spent quite some time playing with her GoldieBlox, the Barbies got a good check-up with the doctors set, and a new train track was built.

Go fish with Gogo
