Sibling times!

Even though I miss my brothers like mad when I or any of them are living far away, the rad times and crazy hijinks we enjoy when all four of us are together are worth it. I love them to bits and I'm lucky that three of us are currently in the same neighbourhood, and our fourth brother is only a cheap flight away in Brisbane.

He was down for the week and it was lovely, and the icing on that cupcake was that two of his housemates, fabulous Irish girls, came along as well! We all went out on Friday night, I had a few cheeky beers (not sure how that fits in with No-Buy July, but I reasoned that they were food) and we caught up for brunch in the park the next morning.

(Chatting to pram-riding, park-ready Baboushka)

Baboushka's uncles took her on the slippery dip and the Irish girls sang her songs while I enjoyed my coffee, buttery fruit toast and vanilla-malt milkshake. Hence my dress-over-jeans combo - I tend to over-indulge when I go to our local bakery and this was one of my favourite pregnancy dresses ;-)

Iris, you just seem like the ultimate wife/mama/sister/friend. You're beautiful, kind, sweet and so thoughtful. And beautiful.

I am glad to hear you had a lovely time. xx

Sounds like such a lovely weekend! 3 brothers! That would be so much fun! I bet it was intimidating for Pat at first?!

Do people ever tell you that you remind them of Kirsten Dunst? I hope think that is a compliment! I meant it as one : )

@Chantelle: Aw, geeze *blush* What a lovely thing to say. You're an absolute gem!

@Eco-Chic-Mummy: it is a lot of fun - four was the perfect number to play Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, heehee! And Kirsten Dunst, I like her style (and her films)! Thanks :-D

What a gorgeous outfit. I totally love your outfit and didn't realize you were from Brisbane.

It's so great when all the family can get together, such precious times.

@Danielle: thank you! I'm not actually from Brisbane, my little bro is living up there these days and studying at UQ. We're going to visit him in August - I've never actually been, I'm so excited!

Any tips on cool places to visit while we're there?
