A Day At The Beach

Yesterday we took the boys to the beach.

We had so much fun. All three younger Woody Boys love the water, and the sand. We stayed nearly all day. They were so into making a sandcastle that it was almost impossible to get them off the beach for lunch. In the end I had to put my foot down and say no lunch, no going back to the beach after lunch.

We have a saying in our house “What Was The Best Part Of Your Day” and then the boys tell us what they enjoyed the most. Both Cameron and Kyle answer was digging holes 🙂

A Day At The Beach

The waves were that big some times that us adults got dumped into them. I was surprised with how big some of the waves were. Kyle was amazing. He had his first go on a boggy board and even though he was thrown off numerous times, he still got back on. Cameron, being Cameron was not going out far on the boggy board, he stayed close to the edge.

At the end of the day the boys had hot chips at the beach. I was good, I did not touch any of the hot chips even though I wanted to!! I am on Day 9 of my 14 Day Water Fast. Nearly finished 🙂 To see my story of how I am coping go here.

I love the Day at the Beach. If I could I would live at the beach. All the boys slept so much better last night, and even slept in this morning.

Next time I will remember to take my camera and get photos – some of those waves were gold.

Looking forward to our weekend of camping coming up in a few weeks time.

How was your weekend?

Too Much Sun

Woodys Boys Are Sun Kissed

Yesterday we went to Caloundra Beach for the day. It was so very beautiful and so HOT!! I was so needing a day out and about with the surf and the sun.
I thought it was a bit hot, but did not realise how hot it was until I got home. I am Burnt. Kyle face is burnt, Nicholas face is burnt, Zac neck is burnt, Daddy (David) is burnt. I think Hayden and Cameron must have put on more sunscreen then all of us because they do not seem affected.
Today the boys were really tired. Tired and cranky. I asked Kyle if he wanted to stay home. But he wanted to go to school so that he could see his friends 🙂


Tonight is going to be an easy dinner and off to bed early. I need to catch up on Homework and also I think an early night sounds good. How was your weekend?
I am so over cooking the same meals over and over. Does anyone have any suggestions on what is tasty and quick to make? I am not really into cooking, only do it because my boys need to eat! Usually Daddy Day Care cooks dinner for us.


Tomorrow is Daddy Day Care and I am back to my course. David is going to be having fun next week when I am at my course and his home alone with five woody boys. Oh I almost forgot, we are having two of my brothers up for easter and my nephew 🙂 Gosh David will have his work cut out for him then !!
How was your weekend? What did you get up to?

Our Kids Today

Here are my thoughts about the society of our young children, our future generation…….

This Poem “Our Kids Today” is dedicated to all who are concerned about our Children



What has become of our kids today?

Can you remember the times it was safe to roam?

Can you remember the times we had fun,

for hours on end and no one knew where we were?

What has become of our kids today?

They are happy to play computer games,

have a television in their room, with their own DVD, Game Station,

a Wii, D.S  and internet too.

But ask them to put it all down,

Switch it all off,

Open up the window for fresh air,

Turn off the Air Conditioner,

Switch off the mobile phone.

Turn it all off, Tune it all out and go for a walk.

It’s like we are asking them to cut off their own leg arm or both.

WHat has become of our kids today?

If the kids do not have all of the above they ask why?

Kids don’t get how to have fun anymore.

Send them out in the great outdoors and they have not a clue……

It’s such a shame, Such a Shame.

To see our kids locked up in doors, with no sun or surf or fun

Is a crime.

Turn off the power Mum’s and Dads

Let our kids become kids once again,

Push them out the door and let them explore.

What Has Become Of Our Kids Today?


These are my thoughts and feelings. They may not be yours, or you may agree!!! I write from the heart and am not here to write to upset anyone. So if you do not agree with my poem please be nice with your comments. All negative (horrible) comments will be deleted.

Canoe At Bribie Island

Canoe Time!!

Yesterday we took the Woody Boys to Bribie Island with our Canoe. Its not a normal size canoe, and its really heavy to lift onto the car but gee its so much fun!!

Hubby David made the canoe while he was learning how to make boats and we love taking it out to use….which we don’t do enough.

We had all of our boys with us yesterday which seems like a miracle….I made them all come!!

Usually the older two go out and about with their friends but this time I put my foot down…which I am so glad about because they all had so much fun.

It was a good feeling to see them smiling, laughing and getting along as one.

Zachery and Hayden hoped into the Canoe and rowed to the other side of the Canal…..and it was so much fun watching them trying to get back around all the boats, the waves and rowing without getting sore arms 🙂

Brotherly love is so very cute to see.

Hayden and Zachery Smiling together

Even standing nearly close enough to have a photo taken….smiling!!

It was a fun filled day, and we even had a couple look at our house so maybe very very soon we will be sold and moved closer to the beach so that I get to see the boys having more fun together 🙂  Looking forward to that day.

Even our Baby Woody Had fun!

Such gross mud!! But so much fun

Even Zachery, Nicholas and Cameron had fun in the Canoe…It brought a huge smile to my face to see them having fun trying to move the canoe in the direction that they wanted it to go in.

Love the Beach, So looking forward to when we are moved there.

Laughter, Sun, Fun, Beach, All my Boys…..what more could I ask for?

Yesterday was a good day.  Looking forward to more good days ahead
