Seven Years as an Aussie

Seven years ago,
I became an Australian Citizen!

Still a Swede at heart, though ♥
(and on paper too, as I'm allowed to have dual citizenship)

Have an awesome weekend!

Student of the Month!

Well done, Lily♥

An outing with the best people! Part 2 The Lost World

The Lost World, Scenic Rim, Queensland

Gorgeous views

♥ The Fantastic Four ♥


Ok, I like taking a selfie here and there... ☺
My BFF hates sefies!
I had to chase her around the car a few laps to get these pretty photos!
If you ask me,
it was all worth it! ♥♥♥

Heading home...

Thanks for stopping by and taking part in our adventure!

An outing with the best people! Part 1 Darlington Park

The other weekend we had an outing with our best friends, the other family who are like us - Swaustralian... ☺ (A family with a Swedish mum, Australian dad and kids who are both Swedish and Australian)

Despite risk of rain, we still went on a woop woop adventure! We went to the beautiful Darlington Park, Scenic Rim, Queensland. Talk about a pretty place...

Why did the cows disappear?! 😆😆😆
They seem to be running away from the tourists...

After our short pit stop, we continued to Darlington Park!

Despite the flies, we had a lot of fun!

The views around were spectacular!

♥ My mum ♥

Scrumptious lunch in the park


Watch out for the sharp and dangerous cones from the Bunya pine!

So Australian... ♥

On our way to our next adventure... The Lost World!

Have a nice rest of the week... ♥
Thanks for stopping by!

Lily's 8th

Our daughter's birthday was on the weekend... 8th birthday... OMGoodness, time has flown since she was born! She had a wonderful time surrounded by her friends, parents, brother AND her maternal grand mother, all the way from Sweden, celebrating her birthday in the park- the day couldn't have been any better. The company was great, the venue perfect for this age group and the cake was scrumptious!

Lily and all her friends

Previous years we have always made a theme cake, 
but this year Princess Lily requested 
a Swedish Kladdkaka 
(a sticky and gooey chocolate cake)

 đŸ˜ Cake cutting time 😍

Fun times!

Almost all of the girls... ☺


Friends sharing cake... ♥


Jonah with his buddy

Lots of presents - and lots of giggles

♥ Afternoon huggle time ♥

...someone's about to escape!!

At home the celebrations continued...

Princess Lily had a wonderful birthday 
and says a BIG thank you to everyone who attended her birthday in the park. 

It was a truly magical day for this girl!
