Making the most of the holidays

FORGETTING the heartbreak and devastation at home in Brisbane, Nicola and Georgia Button had a ball at Boambee Creek.

The eight-year-old twins, holidaying with their grandparents at Toormina, yesterday made the most of the first full day of sunshine this week, taking a ride in a zorb.

John Lamaro, who is holidaying in Coffs Harbour with his family, took to the sand with the three-metre high inflatable clear ball.

After it caught the eye of every kid around they were only too happy to share their human-sized hamster ball.

"The girls just loved it. It took our minds off the floods in Brisbane, where fortunately our son Simon and his wife, Susan, have escaped the floodwaters,” the girls’ grandmother Fay Button said.

“Both of our sons live in Brisbane and everyone is safe which is the most important thing. We don’t mind having the girls for an extra couple of days,” she said.
