adventures with mimi and king.

Usually when we have visitors from overseas we do our best to plan as many exciting outings and Australian-type adventures as we can. Sometimes they involve touristy things like a trip to the Whitsundays or snorkelling at the Great Barrier Reef and sometimes they involve more everyday things that we like to see and do around Brisbane,like trips to the beach or a drive through the mountains.

However, Mimi and King's trip down unda this time around was a little different. Instead of preplanning any adventures, we decided to take things easy since I was only 1.5 weeks out from giving birth. Instead we took each day as it came and did low key things like going out for lunch, day drives to local places and a lot of chilling at the house.

We went and explored Old Petrie Village followed by lunch in Samford.

Along with a few other meals out, a BBQ with friends and a doctors appointment, that was pretty much the adventures that were had during Lachlan's third week of life.

Adventures with Mimi and king make this little boy happy!

  1. you took your parents to beastie burgers! yummy! such a good recommendation mich :)

  2. Is that a beach in the middle of the city??

    1. Yes! It is a man made beach right on the Brisbane River. Since you can swim in the river they created this place called South Bank. It is really, really pretty. Can't wait to take Lachlan for a swim here when he gets a bit older ;)
