Day 267. Airlie Beach

Happy Birthday to me.... Happy Birthday to me.....

Today is my 36th Birthday. Shane tried to make me believe I was in fact turning 37, and he really did have me, that was until I opened mum's card that read happy 36th Birthday. I had heaps of cards and pressies from family and friends that Shane has had secretly hidden since we left Sydney, and he and Scarlett also made me a lovey breakfast of eggs, beans and mushrooms on toast.

We decided a nice way to spend  the morning was to head off down into the town foreshore for a coffee over looking the water. However when we arrived there was a great market down at the beach (weird for a Monday) so we spent an hour or so prowsing the worderful stands. We soon found out that there was a huge cruise ship in, and the market was put on especially for their arrival. Good for us anyway!

I got some very deliciuos banana sorbet and Shane also bought me some cashew-nut brittle. It was a beautiful morning to be on the foreshore. We also explored the main street, where Scarlett talked Shane into a slushy and some McDonalds for lunch. Afterwards, we headed back to our van for our lunch as the weather was now starting to heat up.

I was lucky enough to spend some quality time alone in the van while Shane and Scarlett went off to the pool. Let me tell you that was the best Birthday pressie ever, something as simple as some time out. I took the opportuntiy to watch some episodes of my new 'True Blood' season III; that Adam and Courtney got me for my Birthday. What  a great relaxing afternoon....

Scarlett and Bella - two beautiful witches!

Scarlett was going 'trick or treating' this evening with the kids in the caravan park. The vans that were willing to have kids come by were all marked on a map. The kids were then placed in groups and walked around together collecting goodies. She dressed up as a witch with her little friend Bella and they looked so adorable.

Look into my lolly bag... Bwah.. Bwah... Bwah....

After their 'trick or treating'; Bella's father gratefuly offered to take the girls to the outdoor cinema this evening where they were showing  a scary 'Scooby Doo' movie in the spirit of Halloween. This worked out great for Shane and I, as we were then able to enjoy a nice quiet dinner of take away Thai for my Birthday.

It was a great Birthday, I am so lucky to have so many wonderful family and friends that even though I am miles away; the phone calls and 30 odd facebook messages still made my day really special.

Thank you all!
