Happy Mother’s Day!!!

For the first time, Jay & I shared today together with both our fabulous Mothers; we spent the day with a Jay-made-brekkie of pancakes, a walk with the dogs (Harley and the next door neighbour dog Bella) on the beach and had a special lunch at Peppers Anchorage resort in Nelson Bay.

Lunch at Pepper’s Anchorage was wonderful. The Mother’s Day special menu, the location and staff were just lovely. It was a treat to have both our Mum’s in the same place! It’s the first time we’ve had that since our wedding 6 years ago!
