A trip to Sydney

At the beginning of January, Mum turned 70. So we decided to all meet in Sydney to Celebrate her Birthday. Nadine and Mum came from New Zealand, Sarah and I came from Perth and Lloyd and Gabby were already in Sydney.

Sarah had a great time hanging out with her cousin Gabby. They spent time colouring in, playing with Barbies, Running around outside and bouncing on the Trampoline.  And they had sleep over’s together at night time.

 Sarah also enjoyed meeting her cousin Jayden.  She followed him round and chased him across the park.  Jayden pushed her on the Swings and took both Sarah and Gabby off for a little bush walk.

On Mum’s actual Birthday – we went to the Park for the day. We met up with my nephew Jayden and his Mum Yvette. The Kids (cousins) had a lovely time together – while the oldies sat under the tree and enjoyed the warmth of the day.
 Here's Nadine, Lloyd and I
 And with Mum
 Mum and her Grand-children.
 We finished the day off with KFC for dinner! Not the best Birthday Tea for a 70 year old......but I think Mum liked it anyway. We presented her with a Photo book that was all about her life which has been well looked at.
 On one of the days – we took the train into Sydney – have a look at the harbour, Bridge and Opera house. Nadine and I were quite surprised at the extra buildings that were not there the last time we visited Sydney. We enjoyed a wander around and a huge ice-cream before heading back to my brother’s house.

Although it was a really quick trip - Nadine and I managed to squeeze in a spot of shopping - which was loads of fun.
It was fantastic to see them all – but not long enough. Looking forward to my next trip home.
