The Jump He Didnt Do

Kyle {our youngest for those that are new here} Is our little Monkey, our adventures one who has no issues about climbing very high trees. But luckily he does have an issue about Jumping down from very high up places. The Jump He Didn’t Do and I was so very glad {to say the least}.

We didn’t ask him not to jump, and I most certainly didn’t encourage him to jump. We let him make up his own mind, and he soon realised that jumping from so high up into a small amount of sand might not end to well….

Buderim WaterFalls On Mothers Day

Yesterday was Mothers Day here in Australia.  And it felt weird not having all of my boys with us but we still wanted to create a great day with our younger ones so I only had one request – to spend the day at Buderim Waterfalls on Mothers Day, having fun and sharing a quality day together creating memories. And my dream day came true – it was so much fun and I loved every  moment of our laid back care-free loved filled day.

Another Bucket List is crossed off – Buderim Waterfalls. Great easy walk in and a great easy walk out – probably the easiest Waterfall walk we have come across so far!

In the morning I was so very spoilt with my favorite breakfast ::

The Cost Of Living On The Road

Yesterday I was asked to do a Radio Interview for Wave FM Breakfast Show in Wollongong. A phone interview. At first I said No. They contacted us through our Facebook page, and thought our story/journey of buying/living in a motorhome was inspirational.

I answered with the following “Hi Russell,  Thanking you so much for touching base. But we are no longer in Wollongong – we are on the Sunshine Coast. And our motorhome broke down so its being stored in New South Wales while we are waiting on the parts to be fixed! I am not that inspirational at the moment cause we are kinda stuck without our motorhome. We hope to be back in it by June”

Caravan Built On A Dream

Did you ever think about how things are built? Things are made? They are built on a dream, and idea and taken from the early stages of “Thinking” to “creating” to “succeeding”. They are built cause someone has an idea and they won’t stop till that idea comes to life.

A bit like the light bulb – it was created way back in the early 1800’s by an Italian Inventor, Alessandro Volta -he developed the 1st method of generating Electricity using Voltaic Pile.  And then over the years it was created by other inventors with different type of materials and soon led to one inventor in 1850 developing the idea further.

Yet some of the materials that they were using was not always cost efficient and soon more inventors used the same techniques but had to change them and improve on them!

Chambers Island Maroochydore

We used to always drive past Chambers Island Maroochydore when we used to live on the Sunshine Coast – like drive past it all of the time and never ever cross the bridge to it….now we are walking across there at least once a day. And we love our perfect spot….its gorgeous. And its such a pretty place to meet Kyle’s “Best Friend” – he is the most friendliest kid ever, whenever he meets someone they all become his “Best Friend”.

Turn Back Time

Looking back through photos our Christmas 2014 and found some pictures. Oh I so wished I could Turn Back Time, to when they were little, to when they were all home and it was Crazy, Loud, Nuts, Busy, but oh so much fun. Oh how I wished all five of our boys could be home for Xmas every year but I know that its not ever going to happen again. When they are in the forces life is not there’s and they have to be out at sea.

So if you have little ones, hold them closer, give them kisses and lots of love cause you will blink and they will be gone before you know it.

Cotton Tree Beach Sunset

This afternoon I decided instead of giving into my exhaustion, instead of crawling into bed after two nights of study that going for a walk at Cotton Tree Beach {and seeing the Sunset} would be more fun.

And then we had to go back again later on tonight – more about that reason soon.

Two nights of crawling into bed at 1.00am one morning, and the other morning 2.00am is not my idea of fun, but one must do what they can when their is a deadline. I have started something, can’t share exactly what as yet but super excited cause I have completed Subject 2 and passed the test. Now onto Subject 3 and will have that finished soon – lots more studying ahead but it will be so worth it.

Geocaching On The Sunshine Coast

I have heard other travelers mention “GEO Caching” but to be honest I really thought “nope, that’s not for me, it sounds boring” – well guess what….I got bored of our everyday life the other day and thought “Yeah I know we have seen so much of the Sunshine Coast, but there has to be another way to see more”.

Which got me to thinking {dangerous I know} and I kinda stumbled onto GEOcaching app on my phone, I was searching for something else and it popped up. So one thing leads to another and I am off checking it out with online research. Then downloading the app onto my phone, and before I know it we are off walking to our first GEOcache.
