Scrapbook Retreat 2017

I'm home from scrapbook retreat - Friday night to Sunday afternoon.  It rained / stormed all weekend - luckily I arrived before the rain started and left between showers.  It was a lovely relaxing weekend - I got lots of scrapping done, ate delicious meals and caught up with friends I havent seen since the last retreat.

The dorms and our room - I shared with Kylie :)

The scraproom and my desk

Dining hall and some of the delicious meals.  We get breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner. There is so much eating - feels like we are scrapping between meals.

One of the ladies brought some of her shop stock, so I treated myself to some cute stamps- I can't say no to chevron ;)

The gorgeous view from our room.  We had a jasmine bush outside our window- smelt divine!

Everyday Moments

My favourite flowers for ou 18th wedding anniversary ❤  We also celebrated 23 yewars totgers 5 says later.  We went out to a thai restaurant dinner to celebrate.  It was a delicious meal and lovely to sit and chat.  I was a brave mummy and agreed to Clay having his first sleepover at Nanny's :)  Clay had a great time- no issues at all - I was a bit restless and fretted a bit, but a relief to know he was happy.

Craig and Clay got haircuts ready for the warmer weather.

Enjoying a nice, cool frozen drink after haircuts. Check out yhat spunky new 'do!

While Craig and Clay were getting haircuts, 2 shops down Indy was getting washed and clipped at a new dog groomer - she did an amazing job!  She posted before & after pics on her FB page.

Some fun shopping at Kmart :)  Hope I dont get nits!! Lol

Family Day

This morning was such lovely weather (apart from the smoke from bush fires) so we decided to go for a drive to Hervey Bay.  First stop once we arrived was a park so Clay could have a run around. 

Then off to Hog's Beeath for a very delicious lunch  :)

After lunch we wandered across to the shopping centre to say hello to Craig's workmates and was lucjy enough to run into another friend who was in town for the day.  Then I popped into a new scrapbook shop for a quick look.  I was behaved and just brought some bottles of enamel accents and a packet of die cuts. Then it was time to head back home.

Everyday Moments

Katie, James and the boys were down on the weekend to go to a family wedding, so we popped over to mum's for the afternoon to catch up with them.

The weather has been amazing lately, so that means we start to spend more time outdoors enjoying it :) Our favorite place seems to be the new park & playground at the beach!

On our way to the gardens we stopped to get some freebies from the radio station's prize patrol car :)

Craig and his dad spent a lovely Sunday morning fishing 

Clay can now ciunt to 15!

Morning at the Botanical Gardens

This morning we headed over to the Botanical Gardens to feed the ducks/turtles/eels and go for a walk.  Poppy joined us and it was beautiful weather.  We went for a HUGE walk around the gardens and went to the Chinese Tea House, but unfortunately it was closed for renovations.

Under 5's Rainbow Day

This morning we went to the Under 5's Rainbow Day (child safety).  Clay's not a big fan of crowds, but he had a wonderful time!  He went from activity to activity, stopping and participating when he wanted to.  He lined up and waited to sit in the police car, played with playdoh, drew on black scratch card, planted some tomato seedlings and made a paper plate rainbow.  It was a great morning and we're looking forward to another kid's day.
