Carly and Daves wedding with our god son Jordles


Because we spent so long in Byron we did a mad dash for Sydney. We stayed in Coffs harbor for 2 nights and left left the van there. staying at a hotel for the night to catch our 7:00am flight to Perth. Hmm ok I guess I got my times a little mixed up (so not like me) and well lets just say we missed check in making Ben miss the plane with all our luggage. Cedar and I frantically jumped on with no luggage and Ben had to buy a new ticket and catch the next flight with all our bags.

Oh well we made it back to Perth and spent the week catching up with family and friends. We visited the grandparents, great parents, sisters, brothers, nieces, nephews, cousins and more. Ben spent a few days working for Dylan and I spent a few day packing orders for my sisters and my kids clothing business (skootz kidswear) shameless plug I know.

There were so many people we would like to have seen but didn’t get a chance to but we did manage to get 1 night on the town with a few of our mates.

After getting spoilt staying with Bens parents and my sis we headed on our way to Broome for Davo and Carlys wedding. It was a little weird at first not having Cedar (We left her with granny and gramps) but we made the most of going out and sleeping in. We stayed at the Frangipani resort, absolutely beautiful.

It was great to catch up with friends and there were many a cocktails and beers consumed. Skye and Dylan were our main partners in crime for the week were were in Broome.

Our friends from Derby Kingy and Jo took us out on their boat and we got to see some humpback whales up close, It was a great day on the water.

A night out at the Roey catching up with Skye, Dylan, Micko, Kate, Dave, Carly Bree and many other great crew probably wasn’t the best idea the night before the wedding but was worth the hangover. I even got to meet my pin up hottie (besides Ben) Matt Wright “ Outback Wrangler.” He seemed like a really nice guy and looked just as good in real life as on TV.

Dave and Carlys wedding was an awesome day. We headed to Gantheume Point for the ceremony. Carly looked absolutely stunning and the bright orange sand with the bright blue water made the perfect backdrop for their vows. After the ceremony everyone had a few ales at zoo bar and then on to the reception at The Billie. The night was very laid back with lots of booze, great food and laughs shared. Ben took over bar service at the end of the night, giving me a good chuckle.

A few greasy breakfast and sore heads throughout our stay but it was definitely worth it being able to catch up with everybody and share Davo and CArlys special day. The time flew by as it always does but we did manage to watch a sunset on cable beach, sip cocktails at the Sunset Bar, and kick back by the pool, what more could you ask for.
