Mother's Day Weekend

Murray surprised us with a weekend away in Terrigal (about an hour away) for Mothers Day weekend :)

Genna was VERY excited too 'It's DARK outside - look at all the lights - I get to stay in a HOTEL!' Her excitement was contagious !

Beautiful view from our hotel of the sunset.

I'm SO excited to have a new bed tonight!! (huge compared to her own bed!)

I'm awake but not ready for photos yet!!
Out to breakfast by the beach the next day
And it was so warm and lovely in the sun - a splash in the oce

Cuddles :)
cleaning the sand off her feet!
That afternoon we made our way to the Reptile Park
They had a really good koala viewing area too!
And kangaroos of course :)
and lots of interesting reptiles
Genna got to have a little feel - exciting!
Then it was time to see the big attraction of the park
Elvis - the biggest crocodile in NSW
His snap made us all jump!
Genna had a blast :)

Later when Dadda was off getting ready for sunset shots, we got ice cream!
All clean and resting before getting ready for dinner
Lovely Thai meal - Genna wasn't impressed but we LOVED it yummm
The next day - another beautiful day at the beach after breakfast
I love this picture :)
Such a lovely place
Quick swim in the pool before we had to check out

relax in the sun :)
Going to miss this view!
and one last ice cream yummmmmm
With the stuffed toy she picked up from the Reptile Park - named Snappy Crocodile
On the way home we stopped at an Ocean observatory place
Cool octopus there!
Genna loved watching them feed it !!
A FANTASTIC trip - we had so much fun :)


  1. I can see why Genevieve was so excited; what a lovely place to visit! Great photos of the family and it makes me lonesome for all of you. We are counting down the days until we can visit with you. Those beaches looked so welcoming and quiet. Thanks for sharing your family vacation with us! The only thing I could do without...the pictures of snakes! Yuck.
    Love you, Grandpa and Grandma

  2. Whatta great blog! The photo of the snake in the grass with his tongue out was amazing (and creepy)! The swimming-on-dada's-back video was a blast! The pics of all of you in shades are gonna be new screen savers here! And the smiles in each and every photo are contagious! Thanks for making my day!
    PS - Mo, you still look beautiful!
    Love you all,
    G.A. Joni

  3. Love, love, LOVE the videos!! Who doesn't remember the excitement of staying at a hotel? Let alone jumping on the bed! And the running into the surf.....precious!! The sunglasses photos are wonderful! And the nature photographs are spectacular! The alligator snapping.....breathtaking! Thanks for sharing!
    Love and miss you's,
    Great Auntie Jani
