january 2014 recap.

I have been posting lots of everyday type pictures to Instagram (follow me @ourlifedownunda) and thought I might start a new, end of month Instagram update post to keep track of these little life events here on the blog.

Starting with this picture: Just a boy, his daddy and his stuffed dog, Ralphie!

I built Lachlan his first tent this month. And see the green exercise band with him in the tent?? Well, that was January's toy of the month. The kid carried it around with him everywhere :)

His first haircut sitting all by himself in the big boy chair. He was sooo serious the whole time.

Max took Lachlan out for the day (as he does almost every weekend) and this is the picture I received halfway through the day. Covered in dirt with a wrench in his mouth. Such a boy!

I started back to work three days a week this month and things always get interesting when you are trying to get ready with a small child in your bathroom with you.

Our baby turned into a super long big boy this month.

budding artist.

Some attempts at creativity in January and February. Take away lesson- takes 10 minutes to gather the supplies and 10 minutes to clean up... but entertains Lachlan for about 2 (give or take minute).

the end of another year, fraser island style.

After flying home from Perth, we quickly unpacked, washed clothes and got ready for our New Year's Eve camping trip to Fraser Island (the biggest sand island in the world btw!).

Our friends, Mark and Alicia, flew in from Melbourne at the same time we arrived from Perth, so we all headed back to our house together for a much needed night of sleep before starting the quick turn around for our camping adventure!

It is about a two and a half hour drive to Inskip Point (where we have camped several times before) and then jumped on a ferry for a quick 20 minute ride over to Fraser Island.

Fraser Island here we come! #debaugychristmasvacation #lachlangram #fraserislandcamping

The ferry was a bit windy  #lachlangram #debaugychristmasvacation #fraserislandcamping

It is an all four wheel driving Island (no paved roads- only beach driving and really, really soft dirt tracks). Once we arrived on the island, we drove another hour and a half to the spot where all of our friends were already set up. The island about 124km long... so very, very big.

We did lots and lots of fun things while we were camping- most of which I did not get pictures of because I was being lazy and had a pretty big case of the first trimester I-am-going-to-vomit-any-minute. But imagine lots of beautiful beaches, a fresh water creek, New Years Eve celebrations and lots of four wheel driving all over the island.

One of the day trips I did get pictures of was our drive to Platypus Bay. Enjoy :)

As soon as he had the chance, Lachlan would take off as fast as he could towards the ocean. The kid seriously thinks he can swim!

There are two gas stations/shops on the island as well as a few resorts and rental houses for people who aren't the camping type. We like to stop at these places for a nice cool treat after a long day in the sun!

Another day trip that I managed to get a few pictures of was our adventure to Lake McKenzie, a very large freshwater lake.

On our way back to camp we stopped at one of the fancy resorts for another ice cream and a look around where the REAL tourists stay.
