Moments | 4 Seasons

D wears: Biker Sweat by Mimobee / Dehli Denim by I Dig Denim / Shoes by Converse / Beanie by Zoo York.

If there is one thing Melbourne is good at then it must be the ever changing weather. The saying 4 seasons in one day really is true. You leave your house in shorts and tees and within 20 minutes it can be a real need for a thick sweater and jeans. These photos were taken a few weeks back when the little guy was out searching for beach treasures to bring back to kinder to show. We were going to build a trash monster, but after 30 minutes in the hard wind all we could find was a few beautiful pieces of coloured glass and sea shells, but it didn't matter, the fresh air was a reward enough.

Have a lovely weekend!

Moments | Wave n' Surf at Merewether Beach

M wears: Dress by Gap / Cardigan by H&M / Sunhat by Zara / Swimsuit by Rockefella. D wears: Top by Finger In the Nose / Soho shorts by I Dig Denim / Cap by Beau LOves / Boardies by Munsterkids.

The memories of our holidays isn't too far away. All you have to do is look through your camera and they come all back again. Here are some moments from Merewether Beach in NSW. The beach has the best atmosphere! Lots of local surfers, skaters and the best rock pools I have seen. There is also Merewether's Surf House which is a restaurant/cafe/bar right on the beach with the best views and the yummiest food. There is also nice little coffee spots, and plenty of places to sit down and take in the magnificent view.

We brought swimwear just in case, and it was a bit of an impromptu dip as the waves were high but with Newcastle's wonderful natural pools there was also some nice calm spots where the kids could explore and get wet. Definitely a spot we will come back to many times and if you are trying out surfing it is a nice spot to start out with its long arching beach and plenty of lifeguards on duty.

Moments | Sunday at the Rock pools

M wears: Cat Moss dress by Carbon Soldier / Brian Furry Cardigan by Carbon Soldier / Sunglasses by Cotton on Kids. D wears: Top Cat tee by Carbon Soldier / Archie shorts by Carbon Soldier / Sunglasses by Sons + Daughters

The sun is really starting to warm up the bay now. It is funny to think only a few weeks ago it was impossible to be at the bay without a warm sweater or jacket. Now its a place full of happy kids, parents and people on SUP (stand up paddle boards). There is a large rock pool area in Beaumaris and every now and then we head out there to just spend a few hours exploring and seeing what lives in the temporary pools that gather when the tide is out. The kids love it here, and you can really let them go without worrying about deep water or loosing them in a crowd. Here you can see as far as the eye can take you and you get a magnificent view of the bay. There is also a nice little cafe that serves food and coffee and it is a popular walking spot offering different scenery like forest and beach in one place.

It is so nice to finally have the warmer weather here. A chance to let the sun warm your skin and dip your feet into the sea without instantly freezing. We can't wait to have summer here for real soon!

Hope you all have had a lovely weekend so far...
