Mark had the day off today, so we had made plans to go for a drive up to the Sunshine Coast Hinterland (for those of you not local to Brisbane, this is the rainforesty-mountainy area about an hour north of the city, just inland from the gorgeous beaches).
We entrusted our trusty sat-nav to tell us where to go and set off. We took the long way there - which ended up taking about 3 hours, because we stopped at a lookout at one point so I could give Chelsea a feed (which lasted about 3secs because she was too interested in what was happening around her). We took the opportunity to take some photos and visit the cows that were lying about.
(Have I ever mentioned how much i love cows. I think they are so gorgeous. There was one SUPER fat one lying really close to the fence. She wasn't bothered by us at all, and I am assuming that she must have been heavily pregnant because that just wasn't 'normal' cow fatness!)
We eventually got to Montville just after midday, and had lunch at a really cute little restaurant. The owner gave us a little bottle of bubble mix for Chelsea. It was actually the first time she'd ever seen bubbles and she loved them. A little too much. (we had to stop blowing them because her squeals got a bit loud!) She also made a HUGE mess of the charming wooden highchair they supplied. So after trying to clean up as much as I could, we made a hasty exit!
A few more stunning arts and crafts stores later, and it was time for Chelsea's afternoon sleep, and our cue to head home.
