I would normally love a long weekend, but now it just means another long day trying to work out what to do with the boys to get through to being back in routine that keeps us busy and half sane.
I was grateful for good friends who suggested we did something together on Monday. We decided to head to Hawley beach as the weather was supposed to be warm. On the way there we called into Simone and Simon's house they are building to see how things are going. It'll be exciting for them when they get to move in and they won't know themselves with all that space after living for years in tiny police houses with five kids.
I was only brave enough to go in up to my waist, but the boys and Lisa and her girls all went right in. I had no doubt that Aaron would've been one of the first in there if he was with us.
Harri loved playing a bit of beach cricket.
We headed to the park for a BBQ lunch before coming home. It has a great little paddling pool which Kobe and Eden loved.
On the way home we couldn't pass up stopping at this paddock of beautiful poppys.
Thanks Woodwards for a fun dayand for hanging out with us. We are looking for a lot more beach days as the weather (hopefully!) warms up.
