FAMILY FUN

Our last day in Sydney was a treat.
While we were playing with Fox at Sonya and Bernie's place for most of the week, our other daughter and SIL were moving house  apartments. On Sunday they invited us all for lunch in their new place even though they hadn't quite finished unpacking.

Fox plays with Grossvati one last time before we go home.

Enjoying a nibble on a carrot stick.

Bye, bye gorgeous boy.

Fox's elephant looks over the ocean from Carol and David's bedroom.

David cooks lunch. both our SIL's enjoy cooking, the girls are lucky.

We toasted Carol and David's new apartment and then realised we won't all be together for a long time as S and B are going back to LA and they will be there for Christmas. We had a lovely time with the family but we are glad to be home again in Brisbane.

  5. Looks like they soon got their new place straight. Is it any warmer in Brisbane than in Sydney? It looks freezing there. We don't often see you in a roll-neck sweater!

  6. It is a little warmer in Brisbane. It was the cold wind in Sydney that made us put on sweaters. Notice that the boys are in T shirts, they don't think it is cold. David is used to English weather and Bernie is used to Melbourne weather. You can tell we are from sunny Queensland.
