Dreaming of warmer days… {Beach trip March 2016}

We are well into Winter now, the days & nights have turned chilly – a big change from that unseasonably warm Autumn we had.
To bring some sunshine into this cold & dreary days I thought I would share some (long over due) snaps from our family holiday to the Gold Coast that we took back at the beginning of March.
This was our 2nd family holiday to the beach. Almost every morning I was up early walking the beach and photographing the sunrise…

Day 1;
We drove to the coast. We had fish & chips for lunch at Pete’s Seafood Market and went to check in at our hotel. We spent the afternoon at the pool & beach.
Day 2;
Was spent doing some tourist’y fun things in Surfers Paradise and in the evening we went to play mini golf.
Day 3;
We headed to Sea World for a fun filled day!

Day 4; 
Was spent at the beach and we even did some stand up paddle boarding!
Day 5;
We spent the day with my sister & brother in law, went shopping at Harbour Town, had dinner with them & then headed home at night time. 

The view from our room.
Mini golf time!
Beautiful blue skies for a lovely day at Sea World.

Watching the seal & dolphin show with her little schleich toys. We bought her these before the holiday as little toys to play with in the car trip.

The dolphin show as normal was very entertaining.

I was hoping to show LuLu the polar bears swimming in the water, but we checked back multiple times during the day and this is where they were… Sitting in the sun enjoying a nice fish!

The touch tank was a big hit!

We loved watching the penguins. 
A day at the beach!

Trent & LuLu stand up paddle boarding.

Saying goodbye to our view.

Some of the sunrises I captured;

I hope you all enjoyed this little look into our family holiday. 
We are hoping to get away again with just the 3 of us before Baby Elf arrives, but that most likely won’t be until the weather warms back up again!
Are you enjoying this cold or are you wishing for warmer days?

1st family holiday. Jan 2015

Good morning!!
It’s a Saturday morning, I’ve just put LuLu down for her morning nap, I’ve scoffed down 2 Tim Tams, because well – why wouldn’t you eat Tim Tams & I am sitting at my desk trying to think of what to write, because I’ve been a bit slack on the blogging… Sorry! 
Writers block, writers block, writers block…..
But I do have a decent reason for my lack of posts, we were on a short holiday the other week – it was actually our first ever holiday with our darling girl & my parents even came along with us, but poor LuLu got very, very sick the 2nd night into our trip & is still a little out of sorts so I’ve been devoting all my time to her and trying to stay on top of my cleaning so my poor little blog has taken the back seat! But I am back now! 🙂 
I am working on a few posts at the moment but just haven’t had a chance to finish them. 
But I thought I would drop by and let you all know I am still here & still alive!!
Also I update very regularly on my instagram, it’s like my mini every day blog!! So if you aren’t a follower head on over & check that out – ModernWifeLife31 – Instagram would have to be my most favourite form of social media!! 
Anyway, I will leave you with a few little snap shots from our first family holiday! This trip was the first time LuLu has ever been to the beach & also the first time she has ever been very sick! 

My Dad took us over to a little private beach in his boat on our 2nd day. 🙂 
Getting a lesson off of Daddy on how to build sandcastles. 
Collecting seashells. 
I really love the beach, it’s so peaceful and pretty. Hopefully next time we visit it is a better trip for all of us!
Have a wonderful weekend and for those Queensland readers, don’t forget to vote today! We are off to the polls later this afternoon when Trent gets home from work!  
Talk soon!!
