A NEW TOY....

He has received a new toy....
Not one he expected or had even wanted....
Pete and Maria decided that it might come in handy when we do our big lap and so bought it for Steve for his big birthday this year.....

It arrived last week....

Couldn't wait to get it home and open it...
Plenty of tape wrapped around it...
Not all all easy to get into....
He's wearing a big grin.....
I'd say he was EXCITED.....
Unpacking it....
Do you think he is a happy chappy
I'd say he was very happy
His brand new Drone...
 He spent two nights reading up on it and loading apps....
He watched lots of YouTube videos about flying one....
And then on the weekend, it went on it's maiden flight....

 We were in Brissie for the weekend as we had to take the caravan down to have its final modifications done on the van...  Chloe had flown up from Melbourne to surprise us and what a wonderful SURPRISE it was.....

On Sunday we headed to Underwood Park where Steve was going to learn to fly it.....
Ready to fly his drone for the first time...
Showing Chloe how it all works...
10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5. 4. 3. 2.  1...... Blast off...
Max was a little unsure....
such a happy little chappy
Penny was unsure of this new wild bird that would take off....
Blowing bubbles with Aunty Chloe
 Sarah got to have a bit of a fly....


The drone coming into land..
 It was rather a special day...
Looking forward to seeing the overcome of some of the landmarks we are about to come across on our travels.

BEAUTIFUL SUNSETS.....

The weather is amazing at the moment...
I love our winter days here in Qld...
Warm sunny days, clear skies and some amazing sunsets...
Just check out our sunset yesterday...

Sunset over the lagoon..

 So thankful for the beauty that surrounds us each day.
Trying very hard to not take any part of it for granted..

A FAMILY PHOTO...

It is not often that the boys get to be part of a family photo.


Normally Steve's dad isn't keen to have his photo taken, so that is why this is such a special photo to us....
Latham family photo..
 Feel privileged that we managed to get it...
They all scrub up pretty well too...

HEADING HOME TO DENMARK,,,

Well it is three weeks since they have left..
It was so good to have Pete and Maria home for Dan and Chloe's wedding....
It was sad to see them leave....
Not sure when we will see them next.....
Our farewell photos....

 Hopefully we will get to catch up with them again for Christmas next year....

ENJOYED HAVING A HOUSE FULL OF FLOWERS....

One of the benefits of the wedding is that I have had the pleasure of enjoying a house full of flowers over the past three weeks...
The bouquets were beautiful.... they have lasted well,  I have almost had them for three weeks..
If you know me that you know that I LOVE flowers so it has been so nice to have a house full of them for so long.....

 Nice to have a visual memory of these beautiful flowers.
A huge thank you to Chloe's florist Michelle who did an amazing job with the stunning bouquets for the wedding and who supplies us with all the beautiful fresh flowers we used on the day...
They were all perfect.....

A FEW RANDOM SHOTS FROM THE WEDDING,....

I came across a few of thee photos of my lovely family taken the day of Chloe and Dan's wedding on my husband's phone.... Just some lovely random photos of my family.
Feeling so incredibly blessed and thankful for this life of mine....

These ones were taken as Chloe was getting ready at home.....
The girls didn't see her until after she got dressed.... It was just her and I,  such a special precious time, just wish I hadn't have been so sick...
