point & shoot {blissful sunday}

What a gorgeous day we had yesterday! Besides the beautiful weather, we just had a day full of family goodness. We packed up and went to the beach reasonably early and we all had our first swim of the season. O ate half his body weight in sand, chased the sea gulls and went blue. M jumped straight in, played on her board, laughed and went blue. The water was amazingly pleasant and it wasn't cold (for us) even when out of the water.  The kids just seem to go blue...

We packed up and headed for a new Yum Cha spot as M had been asking for Yum Cha for a few days. Our usual restaurant is in Surfers, which is a no-go-during-Indy (or what ever it is called these days) zone. We love this new place and it has lots of bonuses, besides the amazing service and good food!

We then discovered a free craft and sports activity area and so we had a little play there. The kids both fell asleep on the way home and stayed asleep for a couple of hours once in their beds. I opened a drink and read a fantastic book (love/food, great combination!) on the day bed and then lay down for a short, outdoors nap. Bliss!

We then had a simple dinner, followed by Junior Masterchef (we all love it!) and Offspring, my new favourite TV show. Ahh! A very restorative day, after a ridiculously crap week. Now to hold on to that feeling!
