What a Wonderful Weekend

What was so wonderful?

The hotel

The restaurant

The words

The food

The cocktails

The view

The wildlife

Family Time

When our 6 year old boy said the black stuff around my eyes made me look scary and ugly.

When we walked into the restaurant and Miss 3 said, "It's Masterchef!"

Alone Time

It was so quiet...for so long

An overnight stay in a nice hotel and dining in restaurants was something we did often (and by often I mean more than once) before we were a family and when we were just a couple.

My husband and I haven't had a night alone since before our eldest child was born, and he's almost 7!

So I reckon we deserved this getaway.

And we'll be doing it again!

PS We stayed at the Crowne Plaza Pelican Waters and I highly recommend it. The service was great, the food was fabulous and it's quiet and out of the way. And I haven't even been paid or given anything to say so.
