Happy Father's Day!

After a later than usual waking time 6.15am instead of before 6am, the children were up and excited about Father's Day once Mummy had reminded them. Both kids had made Daddy a card and Penny had done a painting and Nick had made Dad a 'beer' coaster according to him despite it having a picture of a coffee cup (not sure that the school would be politically correct pushing drinking). We had also bought Daddy the Whitlams latest CD and a great hit - chocolate tools. We then ventured down to Kacy's restaurant at Bargara for a delicious breakfast.
Then over the road to play on the turtle playground on the beach front and of course a trip to the beach must include sand and salt water between one's toes.
Apart from a cool breeze, the sunshine was gorgeous. The water was pretty cold but the kids had fun getting their feet wet. A sleep and a relax is planned for the rest of the day. Happy Father's Day to my Dad in Adelaide and also to all of the other fathers around Australia - have a great day!

I just love this photo of Nick. The water looks so magical. He stops momentarily and poses for a photo for me these days. Just another sign that he is growing up so fast.

Looks like you guys had a great day. I postponed Fathers Day for next week. Why? We are all sick except Cameron so the poor guy had to spend Fathers Day looking after us. Will hopefully see you on Sunday at the Club Scrap.
