Palm Beach

Saturday was gorgeous here in Sydney and we decided to take advantage of it and head out for a family bushwalk.  It was our first outdoor adventure since the little guy was born 6 weeks ago, and it went surprisingly smoothly!

Our destination:  Palm Beach to climb up to the Barrenjeoy Lighthouse.  The walk was pretty short, but consisted mostly of steep rock stairs.  Not the easiest thing to navigate while wearing a Baby Bjorn.  But the views from the top were certainly worth it!

Palm Beach is so beautiful, and it seems so Australian.  It's not crowded, there are whales and dolphins just off shore, and the sand is amazingly soft. 

I'm convinced that Sydney must have some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, and Palm Beach is one of them.

A Reminder

If you're a parent, you've had days like this.
I didn't get much sleep last night (hello- I have a six week old baby)!  My three year old woke me up way too early this morning.  We've had tantrums, and unexplained crying, and plenty of sibling conflicts.   We went to church but I didn't get to hear any of the message.  (See above re: unexplained crying).  The noise level in our apartment is deafening at times.
So today, this song is a perfect reminder for me. 
It won't be like this for long.

Linking up to Sunday Song over at 5 Minutes Just For Me.

Holiday Everyday

Springtime Saturday at Balmoral.
It doesn't get much better than this.

Who needs a holiday when you live here?

Grandma (on her sort-of a holiday) and the kids on the beach.

Happy Father's Day

To My Sweetheart,

Happy Father's Day. I'm so glad you're their father. I love the way you tuck the Little Buddy in bed with a different trash truck story every night. I love the way you dance and sing to pop music on the Wii with the Little Princess. I love how you multi-task by baby whispering and reading the Wall Street Journal on your ipad at the same time. I love the silly nicknames you make up for our kids, the way you play with them on Rocky Point Island, give them baths, and change diapers. Thanks for being a wonderful father, and for the amazing life you've provided for us here in Australia.

With Love,
