Goodbye Ashmore Palms

Goodbye Ashmore Palms

Sadly, today was our last day of holidays. We say goodbye to our little holiday home at Ashmore Palms. Despite the constant fighting from Emma and Ryan trying to kill each other, the holiday was fairly relaxing and enjoyable. We definitely are going to miss being able to go to the pool everyday. Last night we went out to dinner at the Ashmore Tavern. It was just a short walk around the corner, so we set off on foot. We…

Disco Night

The staff here are really great. They came over to…

Even though the kids were “super keen” to do park run and there was no fighting, complaining or whinging, for some reason they didn’t protest when I decided to not do the second and just let Belinda and Declan have…

New Years Eve

New Years Eve

Ashmore palms were offering a free shuttle bus service to southport to see the fireworks and new years eve concert, so we decided to go and check it out. The fireworks were at several locations throughout the Gold Coast this year. This was our first time seeing the fireworks on the gold coast, so we didnt really know what to expect or where to be for the best views. There was quite a large crowd, which we expected, but it…
