Markus has been home with us for the time spanning Christmas to New Year's, and we've all been enjoyed a brilliant family vacation at home. Every afternoon when the sun relents just a bit, we head to the beach for fun in the surf. By mid-afternoon, the Fremantle Doctor blows in and churns the sea into some fun waves at the shoreline. This week, it seems the girls have lost all fear (as long as they are clinging to Papa) and love jumping the waves, no matter how big and how strong, laughing hysterically all the while.
Afterwards, they munch sandwiches in the sand and Papa enjoys a swim like the happy fish he is.
Sometimes, they get a wee bit worn out by the adventure...
Stephanie curled up on the bathroom floor before showering off the sand. Sweetie was in bed asleep by 6:30pm.
Today was a public holiday here in Australia, a bonus day off since New Year's was on a Sunday. Markus goes back to work tomorrow (sigh). We've been so happy enjoying such good family time together over the past week and a half. At some point today, the girls realized he had to go back to work, which drew out a disappointed "Awwww!" Despair quickly returned to joy when they remembered they didn't have to go back to school.
