One of my favourite things about holiday apartments is that they are SO family friendly.
Why stay at a hotel, when for the same price you can have a comfortable apartment?
The Atlantis Marcoola Resort apartment we stayed in had two comfortably-sized bedrooms, two bathrooms, a spacious lounge/dining area, separate laundry, and balcony with outdoor setting.
When you're holidaying, or even mini-breaking with kids, the extra space and the cooking and other facilities of an apartment are invaluable.
We'd decided to order pizza that night, but even in the time-lag between bath/shower time and dinner, we were able to make tea, nibbles, and chicken noodle soup. (The Continental version, no other variety, Mum's Homemade-From-Scratch-Soup included), will do).
It saved endless whining, lest the kids have empty tummies for more than 10 minutes!
Our lovely kitchen
Mr 10 tries to get the intenet connected, while Miss 8 alternates between Chicken Noodle Cuppa Soups.
Pizza, garlic bread, and a movie. It doesn't get better than that for Mini-Man!
The next day dawned sunny and warm. Winter in Queensland - one day sunny, even more perfect the next!
First stop, was the pool. (Where else?)
Would you believe this is about 8 am in the morning, on the 4th day of winter in Queensland? And still warm enough to swim. I love this state!
Then it was time for fishing on the Maroochy River. H's favourite stuffy Hannah Cat 2 is watching in anticipation of a feed!
Come on fish, jump on!
Mr 10 lets loose in the games room. Proving the claw machine DOES actually work in the right hands ...
Just two of about six soft toys C. won his little sister over the weekend.
The only bad thing about the weekend was coming home!
We still didn't time to play a proper game of tennis or basketball, fish off the beach, play pool, catch up with Sunshine Coast friends, hit the shops, or swim and fish even more! Not to mention the extensive DVD and book library for those rainy winter days ...if they actually exist!
