A TEDDY BEARS' PICNIC FOR BIRTHDAY BEAR

It was Ann's birthday last week and she invited the Birthday Bear Group to celebrate with an afternoon tea picnic in Daisy Hill Forest. Readers not familiar with our Birthday Bear tradition read here 
 Ann recently went on a trip through Australia with some friends from England. Ann and George did a lot of tour guiding. So Bear is going to help Ann with further planning of trips for English visitors.

All of Birthday Bears friends were invited to the Teddy Bears' Picnic.

A mother wallaby also joined us. She wasn't at all frightened of being near all the bears or people.



 I wore my new T-Shirt, "Made in England........a long, long time ago "

 We found a table and enjoyed cheese, crackers, wine and Birthday Cheesecake.  I didn't do a good job at photographing the whole Birthday Bear Group.  Chris brought her DIL and granddaughter because Bob was home sick. Helen and Paul left early as Paul is not at all well these days with his cancer. Mary somehow couldn't find us as she is not familiar with the picnic areas in the forest.

Bill and George found the best chairs and it looks like they shop at the same store for shirts.

Kookaburra kept a keen eye on the food.

  7. That is certainly a very "tame" wallaby with her "joey".
    Is that park dog free????
    What impressive and "pukka" looking gentlemen - almost too good to
    be true.
    Cheers

  13. The quintessential Aussie picnic for sure! Kookaburras, wallaby, good mates, and (bears?)...oh my! What fun. I'm sorry your one friend is not doing so well. That's hard for everyone. I'm sure your friendship helps.
