The City and the Beach

The City and the Beach

Hello friends!  I hope you had a great weekend!  The family and I decided to really take advantage of Sydney and spent Friday night in the city.  We couldn’t wait to take our stroller out for a walk around the Royal Botanic Gardens and show Coops the famous Harbour (he is half Aussie you know!).

He was obviously very excited!

Well, at least we enjoyed the view!

We also took him to Hyde Park, which is so clean and really beautiful next to this huge church.

Since my birthday is coming up, my in-laws were nice enough to get the Hubs and I a room at Manly Beach for Saturday night.  I was super excited because obviously I love the beach and Sunday was scheduled to be a beautiful day.  It has been quite cloudy here so I was looking forward to some sun, sand and surf!


Check out the view from our balcony.  A little champagne to celebrate!

This was Cooper’s first time at the beach and we were pleased that he tolerated it pretty well!

Although he doesn’t look particularly happy, he didn’t cry and put up with having his feet put in the sand.

Plus, all the excitement at the beach really tuckered him out.  He took about a three hour nap in the afternoon!

Readers, do you like swimming in the ocean or are you a pool person?  Do you enjoy sitting on the sand or the grass?  Atlantic or Pacific?

    Love seeing pictures from your trip!!
    Glad y’all are having such a great time!
    I’m all about sitting in the sand anytime I get a chance! I think I prefer the Pacific because Hawaii is my favorite place:)

    Your pictures of your family in AU are lovely. I can just imagine those little baby feet in the water and sand! Also, I can imagine the little baby expression on Cooper’s face while he experienced the cool ripples on his toes.

    OMG so many gorgeous things I don’t even know where to begin!? Sydney is really amazingly beautiful…or maybe it’s just seeing the sun and some grass that is getting me excited…either way – it’s awesome.
    I absolutely love that cover-up you’re wearing and so glad you were able to stay near (and play on) the beach for a family day. You’re creating so many amazing memories. Live it up!!!

      Thanks Allie! My cover-up is from Trina Turk. I love her stuff. It looks like the northeast just continues to get hammered with snow. Wishing you some warmer weather! ๐Ÿ™‚
