Mondays Memories

A Fair to Remember
Saturday was a beautiful day spent with the little ones at their fair we enjoyed watching our two eldest grandchildren perform their Hip Hop dance with their class. Then it was time for fun rides on the slippery slide, Char Char, dodgem cars, large ferries wheel just to mention a few.
We had fairy floss, hot dogs, soft drink, ice cream, hot chips, steak sandwiches, donuts; it seems everyone wanted to eat something different that day, as they do.  Of course we had to have some souvenirs to take home the boys wanted light sabres, number 1 grand daughter chose a fairy doll while number 2 princess decided on a pink teddy.  We really loved watching them having so much fun and listening to the excitement in their voices as they tried to explain how each ride felt on the way home in the car.
Sunday Fathers Day started off with bacon & eggs for breakfast with the LOML.  Then it was off to the beach with our two children and five grandchildren. This was also the first father’s day celebration for my son which made it that little extra special. We played cricket......and I might add the girls won yippee!
Magic box was filled with balloons, bubbles, and water pistols this time, just for a little extra fun. We had a lovely BBQ lunch snags, potato and noodle salad with some fresh bread rolls.....just delicious. I also couldn’t resist packing some chocolate muffins in the picnic basket. It was very relaxing though my favourite part was watching our children, enjoying precious time with their children, a feeling that’s hard to describe!
Hope you share how you spent your father’s day with me.
Always Love In Wendy’s World

Hi Wendy

What a lovely weekend you had with your family. We took Gary to the club for Father’s day had a very enjoyable lunch with our two boys; Gary even won a little on the pokies so he was very happy.
Kind regards Mary

Reads like you had just as much fun at the fair as did all the children. Lovely Wendy.
Hope you didn’t sample the fairy floss, hot dogs, soft drink, ice cream, hot chips, steak sandwiches and donuts and then go on one of the rides.

The last two years I haven’t had much time for father’s day. I really don’t enjoy it.
Your blog is truly renounced to its name Wendy. So much love involved, it soaks out through to the reader.
Tonight I am going to give my family a phone call and organize a father’s day for this weekend.
Thanks to your blog Wendy.

Reading your blog Wen brings back sooo many memories..absolutely love it. How awesome that it was your son’s first dads day and you all spent time together laughing and having fun. The water pistols would have been a rage..hope you didn’t fill them up with champagne... (strictly for the adults I mean)
The BBQ lunch sounded very sumptuous. Noodle salad is my favourite.

Oh Wendy, it sounds like you had an absolutely perfect weekend. Going to the fair is always a treat... and the tasty food is an added bonus ;o)
It's so lovely that you were able to spend Father's Day with all those dearest to you. I can imagine how beautiful it must be to see your own children as parents... I know how happy it makes my parents to see me with my boys :o) xo

Wendy your weekend sounds like it was spendid. We love fairs...though they are a treat for us as with five children it costs the earth to take them.
