Australia Day Long Weekend

I spent a couple of days in Sydney last week looking after Jonah who had tonsillitis .... not much fun for him but it was fun for me ....   He still managed a smile despite a very sore throat .... all better now though !!

While he was sleeping I managed a little bit of work on my canvas work piece .... it is a Sue Hawkins design but I'm changing it a little so hopefully it will become a pincushion/scissor keeper ....

Jonah has become a very confident walker very quickly .... this was actually in the Doctors surgery last week 

Luckily he was well enough for Elliott, Andrea and he to come down for the long weekend !  Here he is decked out in a green and gold flower lei which we found !!

Elliott introducing his son to lamingtons for the first time !!!

Surfing with Elliott ....

Bike riding fun with the cousins .... Jed and Clay ....

Last night was a warm night for a great outdoors barbecue .... these three little cousins had fun together !  

And this morning before they headed back to Sydney, we enjoyed breakfast at Duke & Co. in Milton to celebrate Andrea's birthday which falls in the middle of this week !

Great news also to share that we will be grandparents again in early June when Elliott and Andrea are having their second baby .... much excitement ....... so Jonah will become a big brother !!!
