Friday Night With Friends, The Beach And The Movies!

It was lovely to sit with friends last night to stitch. 
I worked on my Elf stitchery and nearly finished the first elf.
Mitchell and Austin went to Sorrento Back Beach and had a wonderful time. Austin, Mitchell, Zoe, Sarah, Ryan and Josh.
They headed around to where the rock pools are. 
Renee and Matt joined them.
  Yes, that's Austin!
 
All those gymnastics classes are paying off!
Noel, Nelson and I went to see Saving Mr. Banks. It was a great movie and we loved it. If you're looking for a movie to go see, we highly recommend it. The added bonus is there was not one swear word in it! It just goes to show you can make a great movie and not need to use foul language.
