J&J Gold Coast

Our first family holiday as a family of four! We try to make a trip to Australia each year. If you’re looking for a fun family holiday destination, look no further than the Gold Coast! With its stunning beaches and an endless list of things to do it’s a great destination for a family holiday. We also get to spend time with Jake’s sister Tez and her fiancĂ© John. We stayed, ate and did some amazing things with family and friends on this trip.

This first blog post is all about our time in the Gold Coast however, we also went up to the Sunshine Coast to Noosa which I’ll share in another blog post soon. There are so many things to do on the Gold Coast with kids that you’ll either need to stay for a few weeks or come back for many Gold Coast family holidays! Which is exactly what we do!

So pack your sunscreen and grab your hat – it’s time to explore everything the Gold Coast has to offer!

Meet Belle

Belle Ngareta Te Ao Kapua Carlson, our baby girl arrived into the world on the 2nd of August at 9.06am weighing 7.8 pounds of total sweetness! We are officially parents of two and my heart has never felt so happy! 

We’ve been getting used to being a family of four.  I’ve made sure to be truly present these past couple of months and putting all my energy into being a mum.  I decided to take a step back from the blog, but thought it was about time I shared Belle’s birth story.  Time truly goes so fast in these early new born days.  She’s pure magic!

Letter to my daughter

To my daughter,

Before you even entered the world, you were so wanted. Now that I can feel you in my tummy, those feelings have multiplied tenfold. I can't wait to rest your tiny head on my chest.
