Almost 8

I finally get a decent photo Brock with all his Cousins and in about 4 weeks I am going to be trying to round them all up again to get a pic of the eight of them together.
(Not as easy as it sounds)

My Niece Kiera. Not too happy with how this one turned out, I think the photo needs to be a bit larger but that is OK - I will happily scrap this photo of her again.

This is our Boooooootiful Boy.......
I still can't believe that we created this gorgeous child!

On A Quest

For Christmas Brock received a Boogie Board and a Kite. On Sunday night Mark decided that we should spend Australia day at the beach and put them to some use. After convincing Mark that going anywhere near a highway to either coast on Australia Day was not a wise move, we settled on a shorter trip to Redcliffe, that way we avoid the highways which would be packed and if it was too crowded it wouldn't be too far to just turn around and come home.

There weren't as many people as i thought there would be and Brock loved trying out his new board.

After finding out that the lady swimming near us was stung by a blue bottle we moved on to the pool area which included a loooong walk/waddle in the sweltering heat. Luckily Brock doesn't mind walking and never complains and I think I did pretty good too considering I am now at about 36wks (Driving there was not an option as traffic/parking was mayhem by this time). We had to go all the way to the other side of that headland that is in the top left photo up there^^^^.
Which brings me to my Quest - with all the Aussie paraphernalia on display I thought I would amuse myself by trying to capture some images that reflected the spirit of the day. This is just a few of the many photos that I took ..... Flags, Meat pies, Beach Cricket, surf life savers and stinking hot weather:

A few more of these warnings along the beach would have been appreciated:

We Did try to fly the kite but we looked pretty ridiculous as neither Mark or I knew what we were doing and a preggo chick running/waddling up the beach trailing bits of string and a brightly coloured tarp was a pretty funny sight ..... so alas NO photos of that (maybe next time when there are less people and my tummy is a little less occupied).

Then home to backyard cricket, cold ice blocks in the kiddy pool and pizza for dinner!

So Did our Boy have FUN...?
I think this face says it all:

He's all Boy

While everyone was watching Poppy and Tina on the Dodgem cars this is where Brock was ...... No one was actually riding these quad bikes but Brock was quite happy to stand there and look at them.

Eli with the Man he was cloned from ;-)

If I had asked someone to move these cups for me Amber would have caught on that her pic was going to be taken and there is no way she would have kept this gorgeous pose ....
