Weekend Edition: Just another weekend

 It is hard to believe we have been living in Brisbane for more than 3 months.  We are settling in to a semi-normal routine, making great friends and enjoying getting to know our new city.

We spent Saturday morning at the West End Market as well as running a few errands. The afternoon quickly flew by with a Birthday Party and a Christmas Party.

Saturday night we went to a party on Allie’s street with a great group of people. Our friend’s band was also playing allowing for some good dancing whilst enjoying some pretty rad tunes. We danced our hearts out and thankfully the floor stayed intact during some pretty energetic jumping!

We also enjoyed an insanely awesome spectacle of some slip n’ slide action in the back yard.

On Sunday we ventured back to Burleigh Heads to enjoy a beach day and enjoy it we did! The weather was beautiful and warm but with a nice coastal breeze.

The view to the south.

The view to north, you can see the high rises of Surfers Paradise which were the same ones we saw on our trip to Mt. Tamborine on Friday.

We stayed cool with hats, surf and lots of shade.

Living in the Southern Hemisphere with summer in December it is easy to forget that we are in full swing in the holiday season but the girl sitting in front of us found no problem in bringing Christmas to the beach.  It was definitely not expected to see that!

On our way back to the car we walked through the park and stumbled upon a huge group of people picnicking and listening to live music. What a wonderful way to end the weekend!

We are very much enjoying living in Brisbane but don’t worry Philly, we will always be in love with you!
