Today we spent the afternoon at the beach, my favorite place on Earth. The boys were reluctant at first, I mean who in their right mind would drag teenage boys away from their PS3's and XBOX machines ????
Um that would be ME !!!
I decided that I needed a lazy afternoon of sun, sand, surf and family, and thanks to my determination and sheer harassment, I won :)
PROTECTION OF SUNSCREEN, SUN SAFE CLOTHING AND HATS ARE A MUST PEOPLE.....I am not an advocate of frying ones self to resemble a scrumptious cooked lobster !!!
More often then not, the seas are quite calm in our area and waves are rare due to the coral beds of the Great Barrier Reef, however today, due to an Ex Tropical Cyclone, we had waves that are quite unexpected in these parts. And that put a smile on the boys faces....
They were dunked, thrown, dragged and pulled about the Ocean, and they continued to go back for more. As parents of adventurous boys we made sure that we attended a beach with Lifeguards and that the boys continually swam between the flags....
SAFETY ALWAYS COMES FIRST

Lucky for us, our Summers here in Mackay are much longer then our Winters
I am looking forward to spending more lazy days like these with my family, and no matter how much of a struggle it can be sometimes to get the boys motivated and out the door, I know that once they get to where we are headed, they always have the time of their lives....
After all mother always knows best :)
