Build a bear

While we were on holidays on the Gold Coast we took the kids to Build-A-Bear workshop store. The kids had a ball choosing a bear , stuffing it and then picking clothes for it. It turned out to be a very expensive trip lol. We HAD to buy clothes , shoes, pjs, underwear & mobile phones for each bear. You could buy just about anything for them. They are just so cute though and are carried around all the time so worth every cent.

Wool Technique Class

Yesterday i took a wool technique class at The Home Patch. We worked with woven felted wool and its just lovely. I m off to buy some more beads to finish it off today, I'm planning on it becoming a pin cushion. I think i will try and make a couple more and make them into glasses cases for Christmas presents . Michelle (our teacher) warned us that it could become addictive and she sure is right.

Surfers Paradise 2009

Oh what a wonderful holiday we have had, the Gold Coast certainly has a lot to offer families. We went to Dreamworld, Sea World and Australia Zoo. I think sea world was definitely the favourite. The kids all got a bear from Build a bear workshop , a great shop . We spent a small fortune there making and dressing bears...So Cute. We went to the footy and watched Tigers v Titans, loved the atmosphere at footy games. Skilled Park is a great venue and titans have a great crowd.
Spent plenty of time at the beach and swimming pool at our resort we stayed at Crown Towers, its an awesome spot . One block to the beach, a couple of blocks to Cavill Avenue right in the heart. We have all enjoyed sitting on our veranda and watching the Bungee Jumping across the road.
So today we make our last week along the beach and last swim in the pool then we make the bittersweet drive back to home. But we will be back ........
