Queensland Winters

Here in Queensland we are so lucky to have really gorgeous weather in winter. It does sometimes get cold (4 degrees Celsius the other morning), but mostly we have beautifully mild and sunny days right through June, July and August.

These last two weekends we've made the most of it and taken Max out to enjoy it.

This weekend just gone we went out to the Redcliffe, a 20 minute drive from our place. We had breakfast at a little cafe on the Esplanade (Oasis, great food and really great prices - go visit them!). After eating way too much we took a walk on the pier and soaked up the sunshine.



Such a relaxing way to spend the morning.


The weekend before last we joined up with my sister and her girls and went into the city for the annual picnic in the park fundraiser. We decided as an extra special treat for Max to catch the train in.  He loved it so much!!

Every morning Max and I drop Sean off at the train station and then pick him up in the afternoon. Max loves watching the trains come and go and gets especially excited at night when Sean's train arrives. I took this little video of him waiting for his Daddy's train the other day on my phone.



When we told him we would be going on that same train he was so happy!

Once we got into the city we all sat down and had a picnic lunch and then went around and checked out all the stalls. The hands down favourite with all three of them was the petting zoo. I think they would have stayed in there all day if we let them :)









Tell me. What are the winters like where you live? Are they sunny and cool, or freezing and snowy?

  2. Sounds like a fantastic weekend! It's so cold here, bitter winds, rain and even a bit of sleet. Brrrr! I can't wait to escape on a bit of a holiday break up north next week! Crossing my fingers for loads of sunshine! xxx

  5. These pictures are so cute and I LOVE the video. Adorable! I know I'm going to sound like a big loser, but it struck me as so funny that I did not expect you to have an "accent" I am sure if you heard me on video you would be like "what a Canadian accent!" but I just forgot you were not from anywhere near me! I love it though. =)
