Mamma's Market Buderim

Last Saturday we took a trip to the fantastic Mamma's market at Buderim.  The girls enjoyed some facepainting, snake handling (yeeks) and some yummy fizzy drink and a little spend.  Charlotte enjoyed it even more as her school buddy Chelsea's mum runs the market and they got to catch up .

Back to school aahhh the holidays were fantabulouso !
