Today we knew there may be a few people up at Bridport for New Years Eve, so we thought we would make the most of the hot weather and head up there for the day. It was such a beautiful day - perfect weather for the beach. When we got to Bridport we followed Simone to Mermaid Beach. The Wheelers and the Prebbles were already there.
Bishop P. had a great time stirring me all day about my blog. I know that deep down he really loves it, especially since he just started up his own :) I know he is just jealous as he is going to find it hard keeping up with an average of 35 posts per month!
The day went very fast. The kids had a great time playing with each other.
The 'big' kids had fun too!
Harri was so excited as we had been talking to the boys about going to the beach for a while. He kept running up to me saying 'you come in the pool Mum!', pointing at the ocean. At the moment anything that is water that you can go in (including golf balls!) is called the 'pool'.
The water was actually pretty warm -warm enough for me to even go in (up to my waist anyway!). Noah sat with me in the waves to cool down, and every time a wave would come up and splash us he would jump.
After a long day on the beach, Noah had enough and started yelling (just as the Corey and Kylie arrived!). We had all had enough anyway and decided to get fish and chips for tea and to head back to Collette's house to eat. Collette is away at YSA convention in Melbourne and Merilyn, the Wheeler's and the Triffitt's are staying there. I'm sure she would love to have seen all 27 of us in her house tonight!
Aaron and I aren't really big on New Years Eve - we are usually in bed at our usual time, but it was nice to spend the last day of 2007 at the beach. Jalen is a party animal and would love to still be up there counting down with everyone till midnight, but we are mean parents and have sent him to bed and are about to go to bed ourselves! What party animals we are :)
