'family day'

Wednesdays are Matt's day off so we call it "family day"! We usually try and do something exciting most weeks. Usually we just go down to Manly Beach, go for a walk or to the Mall. A few weeks ago we went to the Zoo which was fun! Today we had a lovely day and took lots of photos so I thought i'd share some here seeing as I haven't blogged in AGES and also I couldn't decide what photo to post on my photo a day so I thought i'd add more here!
Libby slept in till 8am this morning (her usual wake up time is 7:30am) So we figured she wasn't going to be keen on going back to bed at 9:30am. So off we went to North Head up from Manly. We had a little walk around and enjoyed the view and looked at all the Aussie Native Plants (at least i think they are native - haha)....
We then jumped in the car to go home. Pretty much as soon as we started driving Libby fell asleep. As we started getting close to home we decided to keep on driving seeing as Liberty was still fast asleep. So we drove up to Palm Beach and got a few snacks from the deli and jumped on a ferry over to The Basin! I'd never been there. Its such a pretty place. We saw plenty of Rock Wallabies (+ a joey in its mum's pouch), Crabs, Ducks and Birds! It was great! We were all loving it - Libby especially!!!
Okay, here's our trip in photos.....

After our fun ferry ride we were greeted by some cute wallabies! look at its joey!!!!Libby loved the wallabies and kept pointing at them throughout our time there!
Then we had lunch.... And went exploring and then walked along the beach! Libby loved playing in the sand and found it especially fun to slam her whole face into the sand and eat it!! Ahhh, the things you do when your 11 months old - haha!

We saw some crabs! In fact, I heard them before I saw them! I felt like I was in some kind of science fiction movie.....
"Hands Up" who's had a fun day......!!
It was a great day! Im sure we will all sleep well tonight!!!

I love the one of Libby eating the sand (or so it seems!) and all the boat shots - such a little cutie pie.

And by the way... I haven't seen your blog for a while; I love the Broadhurst background!
