LITTLE VISITORS

How time flies when you get old. I thought it was only a week ago when I posted but now I see that it was over three weeks. Dang!
Last weekend, daughter Sonya and her boys, flew from Melbourne to visit for a few days and to warm up in Queensland sunshine.

 The boys had a turn at flying the jet.

 The Melbourne family found it quite warm up here in Brisbane. They enjoyed some time in the spa.

 Cheeky

 The next day we went on the ferry to Coochiemudlo Island for a picnic and play on the beach.

It was a lovely sunny winter's day

 The next day it was a picnic in the forest in walking distance from the village. Banjo spies a wallaby.

 Granddaddy bonds with the boys.

In the afternoon Sonya and her friend, Kelly relax in our Zen Garden, while the children went rock hopping.

 On the last morning I took the boys to the local skate park and playground.

Fox found a place for me to rest and he took a photo of me. Then it was off to the airport and back home to cold Melbourne for Sonya and the boys. It was a fun weekend and so good to see Sonya relax a little.

  1. The spa photo is very funny. It must have been so nice for them to get some warmth and sun. I don't usually complain about the cold, but I am this year and winter has just begun.

  3. When we had thoughts of moving to Ozz Brisbane was the place I wanted to be as I loved the climate there. Sadly we never had enough money for them to let us in despite Nigel's sister living in Sydney. As things turned out we are pretty happy in France, but the language would have been much easier in Brisbane!!!
    Love this post and it looks like the boys had a great time. Love the cheeky photo LOL.
    Have a good Sunday and take care. T'other Diane

  17. And what a great visit it was! I forget, was this the first time Sonia and the boys had seen your new home? It certainly made a lovely place for them to relax (her) and play (the boys)...... and so nice for them to be there for a late fall/early winter warm up.

  18. Yes, Diane, time does fly by in more ways than one. No worries about not blogging in awhile because life is way more important and you have obviously had a fun time with your grandsons and their mom visiting. Loved the pool photo too.
