Mother’s Day for some Bundaberg mums was spent celebrating by the beach at Bargara after COVID-19 restriction have eased.
Dozens of local families followed the COVID-19 social distancing guidelines and set up small picnics along the Bargara foreshore to celebrate Mother’s Day.
Tasha and John Giavannoni celebrated a Mother’s Day lunch with their children Weston, Tino and Gabi at Christensen Park.
The Giavannoni family said they took the opportunity to get out of the house for some fresh air and the beautiful Autumn sunshine after spoiling their mum with a big breakfast and chocolates.
Weston, 14, said he enjoyed being the head chef and cooking his mum a deliecious breakfast.
He said the reason he loved his mum was because she was sporty, and she had taught him to play soccer when he was really young.
“She always supports me in everything that I want to do,” Weston said.
Tino, 12, agreed, saying their mum was always there for all of them, and she knew how to make them feel happy and secure all the time.
While, eight-year-old Gabi said she loved her mum the most, and she said her mum was very thoughtful.
“My mum is loving, kind and very smart,” Gabi said.
“She takes care of me a lot, and we all play soccer which is fun!”
Tasha said even though it was only the second time the family had been out of the house since the COVID-19 restrictions had eased, they all saw positives in staying at home.
“I guess the silver lining from all of this is that we have definitely had more family time,” she said.
“We haven’t had the distractions of sport and all the extra stuff of running around, it really is nice to reconnect and go back to the simple things in life.
“But, it’s absolutely so nice to be out of the house for Mother’s Day.”
