growing up we had a family beach house, that we spent all summer, weekends and holidays at with my cousins. one of them now has it and today we went over for lunch.
as i walked down memory lane, i watch new memories being made with the next generation. priceless

this morning i woke and went for a 10km run along the beach, a perfect way to start the day and to kick start the holidays. (although i have had 2 weeks off its not until Christmas is over that i really stop, relax, unwind and it feels like holidays. part of that i think has to do with the beach and how that unwinds me) so i had had a good run and then i was greeted at the gate with 2 excited boys on their new bikes busting to go for a ride. mum and dad live on a hilly road, so the flat road at the bottom of their street is pretty busy, so after playing policeman for awhile i suggested we go along the beach track. great for them but i think i ran another 2-3 km jogging alongside them and sharing their joy. we stopped walked on the beach, paddled in the water, skimmed shells, rode some more, till eventually i suggested we should have morning tea and a break and then we can do it all again then hit the beach....got to love long summer days

exciting than the gear bike that Santa bought!!!!
reading the note that Santa left and checking what he had eaten and drunk before their sacks were even looked at !!!!
i thought it might be a bit of fun over summer to do some back yard summer camping.
mum and dad have a large upstairs deck round the house at the beach so we decided to set the tent up Christmas afternoon and then they slept in it tonight.
they were so excited to be sleeping in their own tent.
they carefully arranged all their toys around themselves, snuggled in and were quickly fast asleep, with the best camping view you could have !
the boys slept all night and then spent the next 3 nights camping out. they loved it !!
