Ford Choose Your Own Adventure Challenge - The Outdoor Cinema Picnic at the Beach

Look - I have a Ford Territory twin in the neighbours driveway!

It's been crazy busy around these parts lately....

Not long after I found out that I had a spot at the Finders Keepers Market in Brissy, I received a phone call from my previous employer and was offered a permanent full time job. I wasn't planning on going back to work full time so soon after my transplant, but you can't look a gift horse in the mouth, so of course, I said YES!

It's been such a luxury to use the Territory on the daily commute. It's a 60 kilometre round trip each day, so I've been completely spoiled. I think the things I love the most are being able to stream the music from my iPhone straight through the stereo, and also the bluetooth capabilities to make and receive calls. I'm sure I'll be looking for all those stereo and phone buttons on my steering wheel when I go back to my car!

Between Work, Finders Keepers preparations, the Melbourne Marathon, and Great Strides (blog post to come), I've really been missing hanging out and having fun with my little nephews.

After I arrived home from Sunday morning's walk, I packed a picnic, picked up the boys in the Territory and headed for the beach.

The weather wasn't great but we didn't care!

It was so nice to be able to just walk along the beach in the fresh air.... it's something that I just couldn't do for years, and I missed it soooooo much.

There was lots of fossicking - the beach was filled with interesting shells, rocks, seaweed, and even jellyfish. Eeeeeek!

The boys even managed to find a starfish in the shallows...

It got a little bit chilly on the beach, so when it came time for a picnic, we changed our plans and decided to become human CARGO.

The back of the Ford Territory is mahoosive (that's a made up word which means even bigger than massive).

All I had to do was to fold the seats down, lay down our picnic blanket, and we were as snug as bugs in a rug (literally on a rug anyway)

Of course, the boys favourite part of the Territory is the DVD player. We turned the picnic into a little outdoor cinema session and watched The Croods.

The amount of festivities in the CARGO hold seemed to directly correlate with the amount of sugar that was being consumed.

The boys had a wonderful time... and Aunty Cam did too!

Thanks so much to Ford and to Kidspot for the awesome experiences with the Ford Territory Titanium as part of Voice of 2013.
