Boxing Day Storm

On Christmas night we stayed at my Mum and Dad's new house which is close to where my two brothers and their families live.  It's so nice having them out there as they are a couple of minutes away from the beach.  Mum had told us there were a few dog beaches there, so on Boxing Day we decided to go for a walk along the dog beach with Milly, before we had to take Chrish to the airport.

Milly absolutely loved the beach. 
There were storm clouds rolling in just as we arrived.
The weather was really mild and perfect for a walk, so we decided to walk out to the island, hoping we would make it before it started raining.

As we were walking we couldn't stop looking at the clouds.  They were incredible, and kept changing.  We joked that it looked like it was the end of the world and Mum said 'at least we are all together'.  Too bad about my other brothers and sister and families ;)

We took the opportunity to get a pic taken for a new summer blog header.  I would've loved to have had a pic of Aaron and Noah in a frame for it, but I hadn't planned to do it, so it's just the five of us instead.

Just as we got back to the car it started raining.  It was good to have my photography buddy down.  Chrish loves taking pics as much as I do, and he's finally got a new camera after losing his last one off the top of his car on one of his trips to Tassie. Pity it's a Canon though ;) 
On the way to the airport I couldn't resist pulling over a couple of times to take photos of pretty things.   I wish Chrish got to stay longer (or just moved down!) so we could hang out more. 
The poppy paddocks are so pretty at this time of year.
While I was putting Kobe to bed that night he said 'we forgot to put the stuff in boxes Mum!'.  I couldn't work out what he was talking about and asked him which boxes he meant.  He said 'You know! The boxes for Boxing Day! We were supposed to put the stuff in their boxes!'.  He was quite stressed about it and was sure we had to put all our Christmas things in boxes that day, as we had been talking during the week about the different thoughts about why we call the day after Christmas 'Boxing Day'. 


  1. Beautiful post Lisa ..... love the pictures of the clouds, even though they look pretty angry ... awesome. I have to get out and do more photography (even if my camera is a Canon); your photos inspire me. Your dog is so so gorgeous and such a lovely member of your family.

  2. It was a great day aye?
    Still am totally amazed at those clouds.
    Love Mum.

  3. What beautiful pictures. Your family is so sweet. You are such a strength. Praying for you and your sweet family always!

  4. I love your new blog header picture! I would like to do the same with my husband and three daughters, but I never think of it until I read your blog and just think they are the coolest pictures! You always express how much fun you have with your brother Crish, and I do wish he would move closer to you and your boys someday. I think it would be wonderful for ALL of you. How nice to be close to the beach - those clouds were amazing. Thank you for sharing - I've never seen anything like it! ~Lisa

  5. Finallly some good pictures of your doggie. Jay is SO happy...he deserves it! I think it's great they have doggie beaches where your mom lives. I am glad she likes her new house. We moved this year, too and it takes a long time to get used to a new place sometimes. She lies in a beautiful area! I love the poppies...great pics. -Elizabeth from Georgia
