  • We're home!

    We arrived home Sunday night and I finally got all the suitcases unpacked Thursday. The trip was awesome! Sydney is such an amazing city! If you haven't been, save up and GO!! We had wild kangaroos jump in front of our car in the Blue Mountains (got some awesome pictures of a mama with her joey in her pouch), took tons of pictures of the Opera House (it is so amazing at all times of the day), spent time at the beach, and survived 2 transpacific flights with 4 year olds (they were awesome both going and coming back)!

    Here are a couple of my favorite pictures:

    Arriving in Sydney (yes, the kids both have dvd players. It was 3am for us and they were doing the "don't look at me" crap so we pulled out the players to keep them quiet!)

    Koala Park (my son wouldn't touch the koalas but LOVED the kangaroos, go figure!):

    Circular Quay (that is my brother in law jumping in the picture). The close up one of the Opera House was taken at the same time of day but with the nightshot option:

    Shark tube at the aquarium (the stingray was about 5' across.):

    Seeing the Wiggles:

    Kangaroo and joey by the side of the road:

    Christmas card picture! Harbour Bridge and Opera House in the background:

                Tonight the light is breaking through
                So thank you very little and send me postcards from hell"

                      Lovely pictures!

                      Thank you for sharing, twinmom.

                      Is this home?
                      Am I here for a day or forever?
                      Shut away
                      From the world until who knows when
                      Oh, but then
                      As my life has been altered once
                      It can change again
                      Build higher walls around me
                      Change ev'ry lock and key
                      Nothing lasts, nothing holds
                      All of me
                      My heart's far, far away
                      Home and free!

                                Tassie, we saw one kangaroo hopping by the side of the road when we were leaving the Jenolan Caves; we stopped the car and drove back but it was already gone. It was only a couple minutes later that we saw the mom with the joey. She came so close to the car and posed for us! We probably spent almost 10 minutes video taping and taking pictures of her. A few miles later on we had the 2 kangaroos jump across the road and then we saw a huge herd of them by the side of the road. These ones all jumped away quickly when we stopped to take pictures of them! Gotta believe those kangaroo warning signs, I guess!

                                Thank you all for the compliments! And Hector, I'd get on a plane right now to go back! I am so appreciative of my wonderful husband for planning this trip for us!

                                  Those pics are awesome. I can't chose which one I like best but the one of the Opera house is amazing.

                                  Who hopes she will be going to Sydney in 2008

                                        Good morning, son

                                        Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
                                        And I can tell you 'bout today
                                        And how I picked you up and everything changed
                                        It was pain
                                        Sunny days and rain
                                        I knew you'd feel the same things...
