Last Thursday we flew to Melbourne for a special long weekend. Friday was our 50th Wedding Anniversary, Sunday was Mother's Day and Monday was Fox's birthday.
David and Carol came from Sydney and they organised us to stay at the Grand Hyatt Hotel it was a lovely hotel with nice views of the city.
Bill and Carol were impressed with the flower arrangement in the foyer.
It was a typical Melbourne autumn day, grey with showers but it brightened in the evening as we looked out of our window.
We had fondu, rosti, sausages, schnitzel and far too much. I was so busy talking to Sonya and hugging the boys that I forgot to take photos except when Fox showed me his Student Councillor badge.
The next day was our anniversary and Carol and David took us to the European Cafe for breakfast. It was delicious.
We ignored the temptation to have coffee and cake in the Arcade.
That night Sonya organised a booking at Fatto a popular Italian Restaurant for our anniversary dinner just with the grown ups.
The young ones gave us hand made gold handled serving utensils and a gold pass to the movies for a year. They are wonderful people and we are so proud of them and thankful for caring about us.
Happy Anniversary. 50 years together and still in love.
We didn't bring our cameras to Melbourne so it was phone camera time at Southbank. Another two days and two celebrations to go.
