Our daughter, Sonya, brought the boys to Queensland's Gold Coast for what she called a 'sneaky holiday'. This is because she took the boys out of school for 3 days, last Thurs, Fri and Mon. Her husband, Bernie, couldn't come because he was sent to England for work. Actually it was to meet the fans of the show that he stars in 'Wentworth' as it is very popular in UK.
When our other daughter, Carol, heard of the 'sneaky holiday' she and husband David, decided to join us too. So they all flew from Melbourne and Sydney, respectively, and we drove (1 hour) to the Gold Coast to meet them.
We had hired two apartments at Burleigh Heads Beach and had a lovely time with family for five days.
Luckily our extreme heat has calmed down and the weather although overcast at first turned out to be good. Fox on the left had fun extending his hair with pine needles which just stuck on. Banjo enjoyed designing sand castles.
It wasn't long before they were swimming in the surf. They keep their hats and shirts on as well as suncream to protect their skin. Hopefully they won't get skin cancers when they are older. Queensland has the sad reputation of being the world leader in skin cancer diagnoses.
We are proof of that, both Bill and I have had cancers removed.
Sonya bought the boys Boogie Boards and they had fun learning to ride them. Aunty Carol and Uncle David helped as well as mum.
In the evening we returned to our unit to swim in the pool, jump in the spa and clean up ready to go out for dinner. Banjo conked out before we had finished.
