Happy Easter

Our Easter break and holidays are drawing to a close but we all feel well rested. Our Easter has not been overly busy - just the way we wanted it due to the hectic 3wks prior to the weekend. We had a lovely seafood feast with the Gowdie clan on Good Friday which was a lot of fun. Craig cooked up calamari and reef fish caught on a recent trip to Bundaberg and I made a marinated prawn and avocado salad. It was so yummy and provided lunch and dinner for the next day. For dessert, Penny made an exquisite macadamia and pecan pie - yummo!
On Easter Sunday, Nick and Penny were up bright and early and ready for an Easter hunt. They ventured outside with there baskets in search of eggs but were very perplexed and disappointed when there was no loot to be found.
Out of the corner of her eye, Penny spied an egg in the lounge room through the glass and in they rushed to the room they had already walked through three times that morning already! We can only think that Easter bunny was frightened that the local ravenous possum population would've devoured the eggs had they been left outside. All was right in the world again as Nick and Penny sat down to chocolate eggs for breakfast!
After such a nourishing breakfast we drove out to Ipswich to the Railway Museum and Queens Park. The museum was excellent and well set up for kids and adults. Queens Park had a FREE zoo which even had bilbies and a great playground.
I have scrapped up a storm this weekend and completed 5 LO's. Craig has had a couple of games of golf. Penny has been out to a restaurant for breakfast and we've bought her new tap and jazz shoes. Nick has been on trail blazing bike rides. All in all, a happy satisfied family.
Back to work and school tomorrow for all of us ready to attack term 2.
Bring it on!

what a wonderful Easter you have had. That Easter bunny is pretty smart to avoid those terrible Brisbane possums!
