The first order of the day was to open presents (in her lovely new Christmas dress). Gorgeous Girl is turning into a keen bird watcher thanks to Gorgeous Man’s influence and she was thrilled with this gift.
They will get lots of use when we travel to Brazil next month.
She was very impressed with this flying toy from Grandma.
There was a train – this will get packed into small boxes and taken back to Papua New Guinea with us, but in the meantime it is providing hours of fun to a little girl on holidays.
After opening the presents at home we headed up to Gorgeous Man’s sister’s place for brunch. Just a light breakfast of pancakes, hash browns and fruit: cherries, mangoes, water melon and peaches (all in season and lovely and fresh).
Then it was off to lunch with more extended family. After lunch we drove to the ferry.
We caught the ferry across to Coochiemudlo Island.
Our Gorgeous Girl loves water so she was thrilled to be able to swim.
Her cousins received inflatable boats for Christmas and these were a big hit.
It was a really lovely relaxing day.
I’ll leave you with my favourite picture of Gorgeous Girl for the day.
I hope you had a happy and joyous holiday season.
