My 28th Birthday

Nothing crafty to show from last weekend but that's because I had my family fly up from Melbourne to celebrate my 28th birthday. Mum and Dad come up on Wednesday and we went to the Asutralian Outback Spectacular. It was quite an entertaining show and the meal is pretty good.

I had taken some time off work to spend with them so we all went bowling on the Friday after enjoying high tea at Royal Pines.

Unfortunately, Ben's brother scheduled his engagement party that weekend in Melbourne so he flew down while my brother, sister and her partner flew up to spend the weekend with me. We went to the football as I'm a pretty big Gold Coast Suns supported. They're a hard team to follow though as the stadium was celebrating it's 1 year birthday and they are still yet to get a win there. :(

I managed to talk my family into posing for some old time photos. I thought the serious one matched the theme but the smiling one is much more suited to our family.

We spent the last day just enjoying the beach and great Gold Coast weather. You can tell I'm the local because I'm all rugged up and complaining it's too chilly out of the sun. :) I think I ended up getting a little bit sunburnt on my nose.

Anyway, it was a great way to celebrate my birthday. Now I just need some time to recover from such an action packed weekend before the next one. Hopefully I'll get some crafting done then.
