DAY 26 - AUSTRALIA DAY CELEBRATIONS

I absolutely LOVE Australia Day! Its a fantastic day to celebrate all that is great about this country, everyone is in high spirits and ready for a party, and you get to mingle with the most wonderful people from countries all over the world that have chosen to call Australia home. This Australia Day we were lucky enough to celebrate amongst all the greatest Aussie icons - we took the kids to see 'The Cat in the Hat' at the Sydney Opera House, had lunch at Opera Bar, watched the tall ships sail into Sydney Harbour, spent a few hours strolling around Darling Harbour soaking in the atmosphere and enjoying all the entertainment on offer there. We watched a Weet Bix eating contest and a thong throwing competition - all hosted by a guy wearing Bondi lifesaver speedos, zinc all over his nose and a fake moustache! We then spent the night cruising around Sydney Harbour enjoying great food, great music and an amazing fireworks and light display. The kids had a ball, as did we, and we all celebrated the best of Oz. Lots of the images I captured here were I Phone pics, but I think it shows what an amazing day we had together. I hope yours was just as fun x

DAY 25 - THE NIGHT GARDEN

Last night we took the kids to the Light Garden at Centennial Park in Sydney. It was absolutely packed but so very pretty. The kids loved it. The highlight was the Wishing Tree, all lit up and people writing their most precious wishes on the tree for all to see. It was so beautiful and totally inspiring x

DAY 24 - JAZ & CHELSEA

These 2 are the best of friends, often mistaken for twins when out together, they are so close I sometimes think maybe they are too, lol. Both of them received awards at pre school this year for being loyal friends and I know its because they are so dedicated to each other. Both starting school together this year I pray this friendship continues between them forever x

DAY 23 - STAR WARS BATTLE

Coopers Star wars obsession has now started to rub off on his little brother. They love nothing more than grabbing one of their light sabres and creating battles. Fully choreographed and with Cooper humming the theme tune to whatever character he is portraying, their imagination is inspiring and totally gorgeous x

DAY 19 - BOYS NIGHT
Last night Cooper had a 'Boys Night' to celebrate turning 8. He invited his closest buds and spent the afternoon/evening playing Xbox, swimming, slip and sliding and watching dvds. All the kids were so well behaved and had so much fun, with one of them coming in and saying "This is the best sleep over Ive ever had in my whole life'. Amazing what you can do with some frozen pizzas, frankfurts and a slip and slide, lol. Here are the lolly bags and gift bags we gave to all the kids as a thank you, each bag contained a beach towel, bubble wand, drink bottle and bag of lollies x

DAY 7 - READY FOR SCHOOL

We went shopping for school supplies for the boys today. As Jaz is starting big school this year he is sooo excited about it! He has gone through all his pencils and lunch box etc with great care and tried his uniform on numerous times. Today he came out dressed in normal clothes with his backpack so he could show me how he would dress in mufti, lol. Gotta love the excitement of the little ones x
