Weekend Fun

Oh golly gosh! I'm sick again! I don't know how I manage it but I constantly seem to be sick. At the moment I have an annoying cold but also achy bones. Just feeling very pathetic. So to make myself feel better I'm posting here about some of the fun we got up to over the weekend.

It's Lana's birthday TODAY. So this past weekend we had a lot of fun spending time with family and giving Lana a fun weekend. Which Caiden got to enjoy and have fun with. Her grandma happened to be in town this week so she took everyone to the Pine Rivers Show.

Two show in two weeks! It has been a fun couple of weeks. I'm sorry crafters I didn't get any photos of the needlework displays. Though there were some amazing pieces there. I need to get some pieces done to put in for next year because I know my work is good enough to win.

There was a laser challenge that the kids loved doing. It was free which is really awesome.

The boys were really brave and went on the claw. It made me sick just looking at it!

It spun up and around and turned many ways. Not my idea of a fun ride.

On Sunday we visited Bribie Island with my parents. It was an awesome day out and the beach was wonderful.

I learnt some more information about Bribie island while I was there. I didn't realise that it became a fort during WW2. Fighting didn't come to Brisbane but there was always the risk that it would and Bribie has a perfect view of the shipping channel. They built two forts manned with guns. Thankfully they only ever got fired as practice.

After 60 years of wind and weather the two forts are looking a little worse for wear. They had signs everywhere saying not to go on or near the structures but most people ignored them.

When we were driving up the beach we managed to see an emu. I've never seen one so close to home and not in captivity. It was awesome seeing one wild.

Oh and Lana requested a rainbow cake for her birthday. Mum very kindly delivered. (her baking is better than mine.) It's an awesome rainbow marble and I think my dad loved licking the bowls after.

Hope you had a lovely weekend too.

Happy Stitching,


  1. Looks like a great weekend. I would've kept my feet on the ground to lol

  2. What a lovely weekend - looks like the cake was a hit! I hope you feel better soon - take care

  3. Looks like a fun weekend! Ooh, no, I can't do rides like that either! But my oldest daughter is a daredevil and will ride anything. Happy birthday to Lana! I hope you feel better soon; summer colds are the worst :-(
