Welcome to the 1st Friday Favourites post!!! I am a little bit excited!! If you have any ideas for subjects for friday favourites would LOVE to hear them or feel free to join in the on your own blog just make sure you send everyone back here for a look!!
Today topic is SCHOOL HOLIDAY ACTIVITIES:
MT LOFTY BOTANIC GARDENS is in the Adelaide Hills, I took the boys up there to use up some of thier energy. We walked up and there was a bit of sooking but they really enjoyed the way back down through the gardens looking at all the trees and plants.
We stopped and tried to fly thier kites but I have no idea how to get them to fly so that was a bit of a flop.
SEMAPHORE BEACH was a great day out, there was a small carnival happenng so the kids all went on a ride and them we had some lunch and went down to the water where the kids played chasy and played under the jetty, as it was a little bit too cold to go in the water.
MOVIE DAY is always a great way to spend a day and lots of fun with popcorn and chips.
ST KILDA ADVENTURE PLAYGROUND is a huge playground with lots of slides and tunnels, mazes and fun things to do to keep the kids entertained for hours!!!
WATER WORLD has re opened in Adelaide in Tea Tree Gully, lots of fun on hot days.
I would love to hear your school holiday ideas. Next Fridays topic is Kids Photos
Sorry I haven't been around for a while, it's been crazy around here. Let me fill you in on whats been going on..........
On December 13th I went into the Royal Adelaide Hospital and had my tonsils removed, I was excited, scared, nervous and relieved all at the same time. When I get sick it is always tonsillitis. I have been on the waiting list for 8 months and was told it would be at least a 12 month wait, so when my phone rang on Tuesday 6th of December and it was the hospital asking me if I was available for surgery on the 13th I said yes!!!
I organised just the one week off of work, which I know know was a huge mistake, on the day I was supposed to go back to work I could barely move, Damien had to drive me to the doctors for more pain killers and a doctors certificate. I spent the next week on the couch not being able to do much! Today was the 1st day my throat hasn't been sore!! YAY!!
Then there was Christmas!!
Christmas morning we had a houseful for breakfast. My mum and step dad, my mother in law, my sister in law and nephew, my brother in law and my dad and two little brothers. Then after breakfast I dropped my two big boys off to thier dad's and Damien, Ethan and I headed to Damien's grandparents house for lunch. More food and wine!
Then there was boxing day!!! My two big boys were dropped home in time for us to drive about an hour and 10minutes to my cousins house down south for lunch with my dad's family. More food and wine and the traditional boxing day cricket game in the local park!
Then from there we headed to my mum's for dinner with my mum, step dad and my Baba and Dido!! More food and wine.
See I told you it was nuts around here!!!
New Year's Eve was our 5th wedding anniversary and my husband surprised me with tickets to Sunnadayse, it was great! We had a great time!! We ended up with my youngest cousin and some of his friends on the beach at Semaphore, we got home at 6am! I am way too old to be doing that to often!!!
Ethan has just had his last day at child care and starts school in 3 weeks!! Where did my baby go??
About half an hour ago my dad dropped off my two little brother, Lachlan, 12, & Pearson, 9, who are here from New Zealand. I have the week off and they are staying here with me, lots of fun! Although I will be looking after 5 boys all week!! I think Damien is hoping having 5 boys in the house will put me off wanting another one!!
I am VERY excited about 2012 and am looking forward to growing this little blog of mine!!
I have decided to do the 365 day challenge of taking a photo a day, every day this year, which is a leap year so it is actually the 366 day challenge!! I have decided to join in with Fat Mum Slim's January Photo a Day Challenge as part of my 366 day photo challenge.
