Buderim Falls

On Tuesday Lydia, Savannah and I went to Buderim Falls. It is so sweet! It takes about 15 min max to get there and then you hike down this little trail about 300m to get to the main waterfall which of course is nothing like Waterton waterfalls but is good enough for me at this point. Then from there you can hike in several different directions and follow along the falls/pools. We took a classic school days lunch with us too. It consisted of a PB&J sandwich, an apple and 2 cookies. But then I suggested we add something else as a bonus, a juice box and some chips. We've been talking about how when we were kids all we got in our lunches was a sandwich, apple and cookies and how we used to eat every single bit of our food because well, when thats all you have, you eat it all because its sure better than going hungry right? We used to NEVER throw things away, leave food in our "book bags" or bring them home and let them sit around for our mother to find! But my kids are doing that ALL the time! So I've decided that from now on, things are getting simplified and my kids are only getting a "classic school days lunch" from now on. Yesterday the kids had a day off from school. Aussies and their days off man! It's pathetic. Anything for a break from work or school. They had a day off for some sort of fair in Brisbane. So I took Blaze and Mesa and their two friends to the falls. They had a blast! Guess what I packed them for their picnic lunch? Yup, you guessed it! The Classic School days lunch. How much of it did they eat? You guessed it again! All of it! Cool, I love learning these lessons in motherhood.

hmm maybe I should learn a thing or two from you about lunches! My kids always have left overs that they don't eat!

That looks like a beautiful place, even if it's not Waterton!
