Sunday Funday

We debated going to the Southern Highlands for the day but both girls were a little grumpy this morning (Amy had been a party last night). Instead we decided to just head out to buy some new sun-lounger cushions and have lunch at the Nan Tien Temple (which my regular readers know is just 10 mins from home and one of my fav. places)

I snapped a few photos of the girls….

then we headed indoors for lunch. We usually eat outside but it was a bit too warm today. Christy started with water in a paper cup.

Kevin and I had a delicious Chai Latte.

We then went for a bit of a wander enjoying the gardens and gorgeous flowers…

Cherry blossoms – just past their peak flowering…

The amazing thing about this place is that is so peaceful and tranquil, yet overlooks the motorway – which runs along the row of darker trees.

Love this sign – I’ve never seen it before..

When we got home it was actually hot enough for Kevin and I to have our first swim of the season…

and to soak up some of those lovely Summer rays….

Hope you are all enjoying some gorgeous weather as well.

    What a lovely day! It reminds me of a Japenese Tea Garden that we visited this summer in San Francisco. It’s so nice to have a relaxing day with family.
