FAMILY FUN FOR A SHORT TIME THEN BYE BYE

We only had four days with our family in LA. It was a busy, loud, chaotic, fun time. Quite different from our quiet life at home. The boys are so lively and demanding, clever and funny, exciteable and emotional just like two and four year old boys are. They have grown so much in a year.
We took the boys to Poinsettia Park where Fox showed Granddaddy how to work out.

Sonya took us to Franklin Canyon Reserve where the boys enjoyed watching the ducks and turtles.

Banjo loves yoghurt.

Taking the family to Santa Monica Pier Amusement area.

Santa Monica Beach in the late afternoon.

Having fun on the pier throwing hoops over the bottles.

Fox was brave enough to go on the big Ferris wheel 

Sunset from Santa Monica Pier.

We went to visit Sonya at work at UCLA (uni of California). It is a beautiful campus.

Our last meal with our gorgeous family for a long time. Bye bye my darlings. Hope to see you in Australia next time. We were off to Nashville the next day.

  1. A sad parting. The ferris wheel is an interesting design and the beach looks huge.

  5. The duck watching shot is lovely. Such a short visit but I guess you were happy to catch your breath.

  11. I'm glad you were able to spend a few days with the boys and their Mom and Dad, although I know you would have liked it to be a longer visit. Hopefully they will be able to visit you in Australia next year.

  12. How quickly those boys have grown! I just love the shot of them by the pond with the ducks. And the low flying seagull at the beach - how did you manage that??
