Before there's more photo's on our fabulous holiday - I must confess a brought a little kit away with me just so I didnt get withdrawals (which is below)!!! And I will promise to catch up on blogs too when I get back!!! I miss blog hopping around!
The challenge is all about favourite foods!! I couldnt go past this photo of Hannah. We were at an Italian restaurant and its hard - hard because she as been gluten and dairy free since she was tiny. But at this restaurant we got lucky!! Out came a smily face planted on her meal!!! And she was sooooo happy - check out the face! (we usually get a frown at restaurants while they work out what she can eat) YAY for spag bol!!!
CAIRNS 8TH SEPT PHOTO As soon as we arrived in Cairns - my girls found the lagoon and instead of eating tea, they were in the water!! We got around to tea at 9pm! Its night time and the photo looks murky, but that water is clear as clear in the day.
The view from our balcony - just wonderful!
then we went on a day tour.....
and saw many places but this was our favourite.
Paronella! It was a paradise! 10TH SEPT
Our last walk along the boardwalk...the girls were just entering the playground part, and boy did they have some fun! So did my camera!!!! PORT DOUGLAS
Our spot on the beach! Thats me in the chair with Hannah standing beside me. The water was soooo warm!!!
The three of us had a good morning body surfing!
THEN off we went horse riding for the afternoon!!!
Paige is on 'Forrest'
Me on 'Rosie'
Hannah on 'Kerr-ai'
What a wonderful afternoon cantering the beach and then trekking through the Daintree Rainforest. Just breath-takingly beautiful. I dont think my girls will ever forget it.
I think I'll be a bit stiff in the morning! LOL!

Love your photos, looks like you are having a wonderful time, I went past Petronalla park on the 7 Sep, was there for work, no holiday for me, what a small world.
Stayed in Cairns that whole week, we might have walked past each other.
