We sure managed to pack a lot into September 2017… and also managed to pack a lot into our brand new mini for our first ever camping trip. Who says you need a huge 4WD to go camping. As a family of 5 we sure do need a lot of things, but somehow I managed to get an 8 man tent, hugh eski full of food and all our clothes and bedding for a weekend away camping. We decided to book somewhere fairly local, so we went to Mt Warning Holiday Park for our test run of camping with the kids. It was also a nice spot to stop on our way back home at the beach. The kids had a blast on our camping trip. We took games and kites with us and we even got to toast marshmallows on the fire.

During the September holidays we also made a Toowoomba trip for the Carnival of Flowers and to visit Gran and Grandad. The flowers were beautiful as always. The little two were quite tired though, so after seeing the gardens as a family, Addison and I watched the parade on our own.

We also had our Toowoomba friends Deena and her daughters come for a visit to our house on the Gold Coast. They were staying at a little apartment opposite Surfers Paradise so we also had a play on the beach in the late afternoon. Gee was it windy, but all the kids had a fun time running around on the sand and playing together. We always cherish our time with the Jones family.

For Father’s Day we took Daddy to Paradise Country. The kids had a great time jumping in hay, rolling on the stacks and patting all the animals. It was a hot, but fun family day.
