Australia Zoo

When we lived in Glasshouse Mountains {many moons ago!} we used to have a Family Pass to Australia Zoo – where I could take our boys for a few hours whenever we wanted, and see “More” of each section of the Zoo without the pressure of rushing from one spot to another.

Now that we are here on the Sunshine Coast I was thinking about what we could do because we have really seen most of this area already – and so one thing lead to another and we now have yearly passes once again. This is our Family very early Christmas Present to our boys! And to us parents – we love exploring the Australia Zoo as much as they do.

On Friday {last week} David came home from work and we rushed out the door to activate our passes and to check out the new sections that we hadn’t seen. As soon as we got there we jumped onto the Zoo Train to take us to the “African” section and “Bindi Island”. We also wanted to catch the crocosuem crocodile show but for some reason it wasn’t on at 2.30pm – it was at one of the smaller Crocodile enclosures which we decided there was too many people for us to see anything.

5 Things to Pack for a Trip to Morocco

Morocco, located in northern Africa, is a diverse destination known for its sweeping landscapes, winding alleyways and colourful souqs. Despite its beauty, many foreign travellers steer clear of the region because of their fear of the unknown. However travelling in Morocco is no more dangerous than other destinations in the world, but if you are still concerned, perhaps consider cultural Moroccan tours and travel with a company such as Gypsian Boutique Tours. Once you’ve decided to go, there are five important things that you cannot forget to pack.

Abbey Medieval Festival

On the weekend we kept a promise to Kyle – he had seen that the Abbey Medieval Festival was coming up in July and he begged us to take him! He loves all things about the Medieval times {and Kombi Vans!} so it was a wonderful day to see him enjoying each store, every hands on display and waiting the Real Sword Fighting!

Forest Glen Botanical Gardens

This afternoon we had the best time ever! We meet up with our really good friends, and we headed out exploring. I was able to show them Maroochy Wetlands Sanctuary, Dunethin Rock and then they were able to share Forest Glen Botanical Gardens. We had so much fun, the family has three sweet boys and their sweet Mama – gotta say I wished she was my sister…she is raising her three boys so well.

The Notorious At SouthBank

We have tried for two years to see The Notorious. About two years ago it was meant to be docked at Wollongong but due to the big swells it wasn’t safe for the Ship to be tied up and docked {they had to pull away at the last minute and it was one of their scariest moments of their sailing trip}. Then they were up near Newcastle but again we were busy that weekend.

So when I heard The Notorious was down At South Bank and they were there on the Sunday 5th July before leaving that night to head to Manly QLD we made sure we were going to be there to see it.  Mind you Cameron couldn’t come with us cause he was volunteering with Airforce Cadets at the Queensland Air Museum in Caloundra for the weekend! So that means we will be following The Notorious Facebook page to see where they will be going to next – we can’t wait for a return visit!

Maroochy Wetland Sanctuary

Today we joined in on a Treasure Hunt at the Maroochy Wetland Sanctuary – a fun day out organised by Sunshine Coast Council Events – Kyle’s best mates Mum let us know about it – so grateful for such amazing friends!

Even though Kyle’s best mate couldn’t make it {and we really missed him} we still decided to go along cause we all needed a day out and about in the gorgeous healing sunshine.

Kondalilla Falls

Today we finally went back to Kondalilla Falls, searching for the mystery Geocache that we had found awhile ago, because we wanted to check out the contents and find who owned it, and see whose names were in the log book. Unfortunately the plastic food container of goodies was gone :(

But we did have fun walking down to the water fall, and exploring. Kyle spotted a big eel in the water but when he tried to show David it had moved on. We did want to go down to the very bottom of the water fall but a big landslide had happened, with big rocks on the footpath so it was blocked off, still wonder how many people walk over the orange tape and walk on down?

The Best Surprise Ever

Sorry I have been very quiet on here! But I was very busy keeping a secret from my family. A few people knew my secret, and the weekend was a success and so much fun, I am so very grateful for my boys! My second son made my Delayed Mothers Day Gift – the best ever this year, with a trip from Brisbane to Sydney possible to attend my Oldest Woody Son’s Surprise 21st Birthday Party.

At first we both thought that we {David and I} would be missing out on our Oldest Son’s Surprise 21st Birthday Party and I was so very upset that I wasn’t going to be there for the big event. And I had tried many different ways to make it possible for us all to go but with Studying, David’s working and not having anyone to look after our younger two the best solution was for me to fly down for the weekend, and spend it with family.

Happy 21st Birthday To Our Son

Our oldest is now 21 years old – how did all those years go bye that very fast? I remember his birth like it was yesterday. I was shopping when the first contraction hit – and it came in fast and strong from that very moment. I was two weeks over due with him {we went two weeks overdue with all of our boys}.

And I was so very young….back then I thought I knew it all!!! Ha if only I knew then what I know now! As a young Mum I had to face a lot of “looks” when out and about – I was only 20 when I gave birth to him. And the area I grew up was not the best to raise a baby.

And I had to fight to be able to have my baby – there was a “family” meeting with my side of the family and they all thought I shouldn’t be having him and asked me to not go through with the pregnancy. Luckily I am so head strong and I follow my heart – no-one was talking me out of having my baby.
