We had a fantastic Australia Day yesterday as we attended the Citizenship Ceremony for D&S, Glen's Brother and his family. It was held at Wahroonga Park by the rotunda and even though it started at 8.30am it got pretty hot by the end of it!
They had the Rotary Band, Scouts, Don Burke did a speech as did Barry O'Farrell (or Bazza O'Fazza as I call him) it was such a nice ceremony and I felt so proud, no only for my Country but for D&S and the kids.
Afterwards we had a lovely picnic under the big fig trees and the kids ran around playing in the park. We had to leave early though for Will to have his sleep.
So then in the afternoon we went back to D&S's house (made ourselves at home in their swimming pool as they weren't back from the park yet). And managed to cool right down.
Here is my Little Aussie getting ready to jump in the pool, look at those cute little leggies!
When D&S and kids got home they joined us in the pool and we had so much fun, eating dip and chips and left overs from the picnic as well as a celebratory bottle of Moet. D blew up a big camping mattress and floated it in the pool, it was so cute seeing all the cousins rumbling around on top of it!
We only got home after 7pm so Will went straight to sleep in his clothes!
Here is the Little Aussie this morning doing what he loves most at the moment.
Walking in Mummy and Daddy's shoes!
