Our First Family Holiday
We survived going on holiday with a 7 month old! High five to us!
We weren’t brave enough yet to take Ethan on an aeroplane, so we decided on a road trip to Aldinga, about an hour south of Adelaide. We spent our first family holiday at a wonderful place at Sellicks Beach, South Australia.
Words just can’t describe how lovely it was just to get away from the hustle and bustle. Seeing as how pictures speak a thousand words in a thousand languages, we thought we’d let them do the talking.
Without further ado, here they are…
Red wine and herb steak, char-grilled zucchini, and grilled vine-ripened baby tomatoes. I usually hate tomatoes, but this day was different.
Father and son. Getting the little lad accustomed to the surf. He’ll be on a surf board in no time.
Asleep at the beach. Baby gear at the ready.
A day-time snooze on the deck. Babies know how to relax…
Dad’s turn to feed the distracted little man
Mini-watermelon?!! For me????
My teething ring is for some reason the most exciting thing in the universe!
Lonesome sheep in Aldinga. Happy standing in the same boring spot for hours.
Going for a walk, looking at the sheep, sooo exciting!
Chewing my teething toys in the sun, under my sweet new shade tent, with mum and dad nearby. Happy.
Family photo time…
Extended family photo time… they couldn’t resist a 1 hour drive in 38 degree heat, just to see him. Oh, to be a cute baby.
Mum and son, with new summer dress and Radiance teething necklace.
Trying desperately to spell “BubbaGummy” with sparklers on New Years eve. Not drunk, it’s just really difficult!
Aldinga Beach, on New Years Day. How’s the serenity?
This is what a person without a care in the world (or children) does on New Years in Aldinga.
Horse-riding in the ocean… Now there’s something we’ve never seen before.
Did you manage to get away for a few days over the break? We’d love to hear your stories.
