Special Memories

24112009_002.jpgWe are back again at Peppers Salt Village for a week of sunshine. Once again the weather has not disappointed. This visit we have taken more of a relaxed approach not filling our days with site seeing but lazing by the pool, walks on the beach and evening trips for icecream. And to my surprise I have struggled with not organising and planning out every minute. I have had to make an effort to just go with the flow……. something that does not come naturally for me. Andrew has enjoyed napping on the lounge and Ben has enjoyed the evening trips for icecream He is in LOVE with cookies and cream icecream. He eats his own so quickly he moves on to sharing Mummy’s! Al, Claire and Hugo popped in for a visit today. We are truely blessed to have such wonderful family. I haven’t taken many picture yet this trip only a few to capture some special memories.

EDI Rec Club Picnic

This years annual picnic event for the EDI Recreation Club was held at Wet n Wild again. As is customary, children receive a gift from Santa. Ben was lucky to receive a little Bob the Builder, with a working flashlight. Well what a treat, the little light kept him busy for hours. A great day out supported by the Rec Club. Thanks for the gift and also the complimentary drinks, chips, lollies and icecreams.

What makes the day even more special is sharing it with family and friends. This year Al, Claire and Hugo, Bree, Chris, Joseph and Baby Tom and Clive, Cherie, Caleb, Joel and Benny, joined us for the special day. The wave pool was the biggest hit for the little ones but Ben and Joseph also enjoyed chilling in Calypso Bay. Bree took a short video of the boys. I will post it soon.

Ben Goes Shopping!!!

Andrew, Ben and I popped into Coles to grab some last minute groceries for our holiday.  Andrew convinced me that Ben would be fine walking and he didn’t need to be in a trolley.  Ben enjoyed holding the basket and walking with us.   He was greeted by smiles from other shoppers.   But……… the basket got heavy and Ben could no longer carry it.  It took a whole five seconds of not holding the basket and Ben was off.  Andrew chased Ben and I continued the shopping.  I moved through a few aisles when I came across Ben.  He was having a great time leaning in the milk fridge licking the tops of the milk bottles.  Why….. who knows!!   Andrew was nowhere to be seen.  I picked up Ben and quickly moved away from the milk hoping no one saw.  Finally Andrew comes down the aisle a little short of breath.  MMmmmmm I think I will be using the trolley for a little while longer or taking two baskets one for me and one for Ben!
