I have been on away for a long weekend with my sister and her two children. We went to Yeppoon to visit my grandmother for her 86th birthday. It is an eight hour drive from here to Yeppoon. We had a one year old and a five year old in the back seat, so I am certain that you can appreciate that the trip had some difficult moments! Thankfully they were brief and both of the children were remarkably patient.
Grandma didn’t know that we were coming to see her, so she was thrilled!
She had been waiting to meet my nephew. My sister adopted him last year and he has our much loved grandfather’s name. Needless to say he was the star of the weekend. He was charming to all he met and left a lasting impression.
That face is pure cheekiness!
We were able to spend about an hour each day on the beach.
It was a lovely weekend, but as always, it is good to be home.
