Australia Day

Some pear, date and coconut and chocolate chip muffins as our contribution to the bring and share breakfast.

Happy belated Australia Day to all the Aussies out there!!
I hope you all had a wonderful day, whatever you may have been doing.
Hot or cold, rain or shine , its such a special day and one we love to celebrate!!

The kids were so excited as we headed of to my Aunty's for breakfast. Excited to see their cousins, and excited for the day that lay ahead.  So cute...

And our Australia Day went something like this.....

Champagne at breakfast? Yes please !!

I love that our kids love my Dad as much as I do!! He is Angus' favourite person!

Aussie Paraphernalia everywhere!


Lucky kiddos got their nails painted by their big cousins!

Plus the mandatory temporary flag tattoos, and a touch of face painting.

After our breakfast at my Aunty's, we headed around the corner to my parents house for a swim (the temp was in the high 30's in the mid west of Western Australia ) , some lunch and more swimming. The day didn't wrap up until late arvo and we headed home around 6pm.

Cousins galore. Imagine a pool with all these kids and adults to supervise + blow up balls  = FUN FUN FUN!!

And no Australia Day is complete without a yummy pavlova!! Delicious

At the end of the day we had some very tired and worn out kids but they had the best day!! We all did.
Its amazing what some family time, sunshine and water fun can do for the soul!!

How was your Australia Day?

On a less positive note, I feel for all those being affected by the floods and damage in Queensland. Praying that you are all safe and sound and there is minimal damage to your homes and belongings x
Mother nature can be so cruel x
