Last night we got back from a fabulous four days on the Sunshine Coast. Though the forecast was calling for rain, the Sunshine Coast stayed true to its name and was brilliant and sunny 90% of the time. But I will get to all that goodness another time.
At this very moment, I am on my fourth load of laundry with no end in sight. I have two tired and cranky kids. I, myself, am feeling wiped out despite my 4th cup of coffee.
Just like the weather, 90% of the time we had the best time camping. But today I share the other 10%.
I share with you the moments I did not capture on camera. Like the sleepless night with Miss Miserable (sorry neighboring campers…) There was dirt, booboos, one end-of-day, everybody is hungry and tired group tempter tantrum (adults included) and one lost ‘stroll’ with one frantic mamma, one nervous nelly preschooler and one grumpy boots baby in an umbrella stroller over gnarled roots, giant rocks and bear poop.
I share with you the part where we couldn’t find a damn place (open) to eat Fish n Chips. On the coast. On the weekend. During summer. With loads of tourists looking for some damn Fish n’ Chips. Damn.
I share the part where we give up and eat a larger than life slice of pizza instead.
Then on a whim head to a park for Kaya. Where they, of course, are selling Old Fashioned Fish n’ Chips. Arg. We are too full for them. But not too full for the mini donuts next door.
Yah, those storm clouds didn’t ever last long. Rays of sunshine (or mini donuts) kept peekin on through.
We don’t always love the rain drops, especially on holidays, but the thing is, sometimes we need them.
Sometimes we need Booger Bubbles in life too. Yes we do. Thank goodness for babies who can teach us the way. (Because seriously, what adult do you know can do these?!)
