WARM UP IN BRISBANE

A few weeks ago Sonya and the boys came to Brisbane to visit us and to warm up, as the weather has been very cold in Melbourne. Bernie was in USA for a few days. They stayed with us for the weekend and then we went to Burleigh Heads on the Gold Coast for four days.

 Fox played ball with Grandaddy and the neighbour Trevor.

 While Banjo preferred to pick flowers for his mummy.

 Then they wanted to visit the zen garden. Fox is planning a game. Fox is 8 and Banjo 6.

 Later we walked into the forest next to the village and while Fox played football in the picnic area with his mum, I took Banjo into the Koala Centre. A place to learn about Koalas. They only keep Koalas there that need medical attention or joeys who have lost their mother (road kill or dogs)

 Banjo enjoyed being a vet for a while.

He tendered to the (toy) koala's injuries. They have lots of toy koalas for lots of children but there were not many there on this day even though it was school holidays.

Not long after he was off to the next activity. He was hard to keep up with. Its so nice to have them visit.

  4. Enjoyed your photos. The photos of the little boy and koala were especially cute. I can only imagine how cool it is in Melbourne as I haven't actually had the pleasure of travelling there yet. I've only travelled from Port Douglas north of Cairns all the way to Sydney by car. That was a beautiful and unforgettable trip. I have wonderful memories of that fun time.

  8. I always felt I needed a vacation after a visit from young grandchildren, but it was always delightful to have their visit.

  12. Grandchildren are such a bundle of energy Diane.. must admit even after just 48 hours I was a wee bit exhausted after my granddaughter left. You look like you are having so much fun here 😀 Does your daughter get to see anything of Perth when she's here or is it all business?
