a few weeks ago.

Ever since Lachaln arrived, we have constantly been on the go. Birthday parties... dinners... lunches... picnics... shopping... He has been to the beach, the lake, the doctor, the movies, the nail salon- even over the state line to New South Wales. Yep- pretty much everywhere!

Here are a few pictures of our last two adventures with Mimi before she left (yes, she left a few weeks ago... I am very behind with my blog. Oops!).


Day trip to Kings Cliff, New South Whales

We travelled down to Kings Cliff for Nathan's 40th Birthday where Max was able to catch up with a bunch of his old friends. He held Lachlan like this for nearly an hour and a half, showing him off to everyone he could. Such a proud daddy :)

One Sunday afternoon we drove out to Lake Somerset for a picnic and swim with Tom and Nerissa.

We found a perfect piece of shade lakeside under a big tree.

I had forgotten how much I love fresh water swimming which of course reminded me of summers at my Grandma's lake- boats, tubing, cousins, cold watermelon, paddle boats, fishing, fireworks, fire pits and smores (which, by the way, don't exist here in Oz...).

It was a perfect day. Not too hot or sunny, but just right for a picnic and swim in the lake.

I think we will definitely be coming back here for some camping adventures in the future!

I'm sorry have been a bit slow with my updates lately.... something about having family in town. Oh- and a new baby too :) But I promise I'll be back soon with lots of fun pictures of our Christmas with Nana and Poppy as well as some random thoughts on things I have learned, what we have been up to and answering some of your FAQs.

I hope everyone has had an amazing holiday and blessed Christmas with family and friends. As much as the holidays are a time of joy and happiness, I know there are many people out there who are healing from a tough year and recent losses- you too have been in my heart during this time.
