THE BOYS IN BRISBANE

 Last Saturday our two daughters and two grandsons arrived at Brisbane Airport after flying all night from LA. Sonya and Bernie are moving back to Australia....hooray! Sonya and the boys are staying in Brisbane for a few weeks while Bernie settles into his new job in Melbourne. Carol flew to LA to help Sonya finish packing and shipping belongings home as well as helping with the boys on the flight to Brisbane.
The boys were pleased to see us as we pulled into the pick up spot at the airport. The girls looked a little tired.
 It sure has livened up our quiet home.  Carol stayed overnight and then flew home to Sydney. We have taken the children to the local playgrounds.

 We have been to the forest to see koalas and find friends to play with.

 We have been to the lagoon to feed the ducks.

 Banjo taste tests the bread first.

Fox was hand feeding them.


Banjo watered the pot plants for me before they packed up the hire car and headed down to Mullumbimbi for a Circus Festival and four days camping.  
Sonya has to get used to driving on the left again.

  4. You must be so pleased they are moving back to Australia and if it is to Melbourne, at least it is a lot closer than the US. Lucky the drain problem happened before they arrived and not when they arrived.
