I remember a few years ago, when we first heard that the Gold Coast was going to be hosting the Commonwealth Games, we talked about how crazy it would be knowing that our kids would be EIGHT and SIX years old when we took them to the events. It seemed unfathomable at the time, and yet here we are...
We put our bids in for two events, and we were lucky enough to score tickets for both. We chose preliminaries rather than finals, and day events, thinking we'd have better luck getting those tickets. Our first event was last Friday at the Artistic Gymnastics - miss 8 was SO excited!! Mr 6... well not so much. When we got home that night, we asked them:
"What was the best part of the day?"
Miss 8 - watching all the gymnasts!
Mr 6 - going on the train (haha)
Our next event is tomorrow (Friday) and we are seeing the Athletics! We are most looking forward to experiencing the atmosphere, although I have some trepidation about sitting in the sun all day, and the long queues for the toilets ;)
Have you been to see any events?
The arrival of a new family member is always cause for celebration - and updating your family portraits is a lovely way to do that! Rochelle and her family came to Tamborine recently for a mix of studio and outdoor portraits, so that we could achieve two very different looks for their session.
Baby Tyler was just a few weeks old in this session - how cute is he in his little outfit? After a few little newborn images in the studio, we ventured out into the beautiful afternoon light to capture some more family memories.
Here are a few of the favourites from the day.
