I was just reading LeAnn's blog about how she loves the beach and it got me thinking of my home town and its lovely beaches. I thougth I might post some. Here is a link to a slide show of some of the lovely beaches.
It is a lovely town to visit thought I don't know if I could live there again, my parents are still there. If you ever watch the movie Baz Luhrmann's movie Australia staring Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman there are alot of scenes filmed in Bowen.
I hope you enjoyed my little trip down memory lane. I wish I was there now on a lovely beach in the sun instead of being cold on such a dull winters day.
I have been tagged by Linda this is my first tagging.

With all the sickness I did not post the mothers day wins out but they will be posted this week and I will blog about what the girls got. So sorry girls.
The last 2 days I have been trying to catch up on cupcake orders and restocking. Today I was taking photos of everything with the help of my 3 year old son. I have an old camera which does not work any more and he loves to help set up and take photos as well.
I am thinking of getting him a kid camera for his birthday that actually takes photos. Can you see the cupcakes poking out of the shelf near the books. He set them up with some pretty things.
Here are some photos of what I have been working on. I am in the process of expanding my range.
I am looking forward to having some time to catch up with you girls and your blogs and see what adventures you have been having.

Yesterday our package arrived from Shannon, I had to wait all afternoon until Mikayla came home from School to open it.
She can't wait to get that box opened.
This hat is sooo cute and had little kittens on it. Mikayla loves cats.
These are all the sweet things Shannon made. They are lovely, now all we have to do is work out who gets what lol. We decided that Mikayla can choose what she would like (except for the bedroom banner that is going in my room) if she can keep her room clean for a week. We have found the perfect place to display the pretties.
Thankyou Shannon for making this swap so special.
This park visit was one of those spur of the moment things I had to go to an ATM and then decided to go to the park, the girls were still in dress ups. Oh well.. It was such a lovely Autumn day.
Morning tea of gingerbread men and juice.
Mikayla being a princess
Aren't these the best swings my kids love them
Then Auntie Renee turned up to say hi and have a play
Mikayla riding side saddle, she informs me this is how all Princesses ride.
Then Sunday we went to another park with some people after Church and Monday we had fish and chips in an other park. Lots of fun and sunshine. We are making the best of it before winter hits and it is tooooooo cold to go to the park.
