Her caramels were the best- never tasted any quite so perfect as those. I am so sorry I missed her service. Thank you for sharing your talk. Wish I was there. I think of her as I fold the afghan she made, nearly daily. After reading your text, I won't complain about having to re-fold it and put if back on the couch (since the kids can't seem to remember how) as it is a reminder of the wonderful woman who's hands created it. Love you all

Can't believe you have flowers already there!! But happy that you get to enjoy them.They are beautiful and so vibrant with color. I can just taste that cappuccino in my imagination! Mmmm

WoW! what an adventure! You will surely have to do that again sometime so Sophie and James can get the hang of it. Then maybe you will get to experience more of the diving. Way to go Cameron and Katie for taking off and getting the most of the experience.
Looks a bit like field day here - but so much more advanced! You can really tell that athletics is more impportant to Australians then Americans. I seriously believe you are going to have a hard time getting your kids to leave Australia willingly! Sorry to say it!
Say Hi to your Pastor and his wife for me, and also to the couple that I sat with in church that Sunday. I noticed him in the picture with Ross. They were so friendly during my visit and appeared to genuinely care about your family.

Extra cool (very and really were not enough) sand art. Especially the pile of frogs! If I were there for a lifetime, I would still never get tired of watching the Lorikeets. The Cardinal and Blue Jay hold my fascination here on this side of the globe, and the Lorikeet is like those two multipled (OK so 1x1 is still 1, but you get the idea) :) They are as a child's coloring page with their bright stripes of color.
A story to be told all their lives!
Great capturing the progress! Actually it is a good thing you needed to document this for the Grandparents because so soon we forget the successes of everyday life. Here you can look back and remember his cute smiling face. Every achievement deserves a grin. :)
Love the aerial shots! Had to laugh at your airlines story though. Finally - my planning in every trip to have the essentials in my carry-on for at least one days time and my toiletries would have proven profitable!! Wish I could have been there traveling with you so I could have chuckled as I watched! Guess you have to have those misirable times in there to appreciate the times technology and machienry work the way they are designed to work.

Wow! What a fantastic experience! I love the pictures of you and your family as well. I am impressed with the adventurous attitude of your kids. You did not mention if any coaxing was involved, but I imagine it was not. Your stories of the danger are the exact reason why, if I ever were to make it to the Great Barrior Reef, I would be traveling on the sailboat and underwater boat only!!! I tried snorkeling once in Mexico - even had to convince Andy to go along- and only lasted about one minute. As beautiful as they were, I am satisfied with the pictures or with a piece of glass between myself and the creatures. Andy, of course, was thrilled with the snorkeling and finished the session without me. Fills me with joy to know that you loved it! It's great to hear you are creating so many memorable moments.

LOVE the beautiful pictures!! The colors are so vibrant and your awesome camera and photography skills have captured them well. It's funny that I just sent you an email asking how the colors were on the leaves and here they are - Although, I think they were posted before I asked! :) I love the pictures in the stream also. If it were my kids, I think I would blow the one up of Sophie and James playing by the water and hang it on the wall somewhere. Just beautiful! I am so glad it is an extended season there. So many times our leaves are beautiful, but you only have a few days to enjoy them before a good wind and rain put them all on the ground. Enjoy!

Thinking of you daily....praying for you too.
GREAT Pictures and a beautiful view! I wanted to go on that walk!!! But we did so much - and I enjoyed every excursion we fit into my visit. Maybe next time.... I loved the pictures of the rocks and ocean. So cool that you saw a snake, but so glad I wasn't with you that time! I love the pictures of Cameron in the water. This truely will be remembered forever. It is so neat that you get out and do so much with your kids. Thanks for sharing. And about the upcoming autumn - as we are seeing on the other side of the world - spring will eventually make it's way around.

Couldn't get enough of it! The beauty just kept multiplying by the minute!
Christie, I just organized my photos form the trip and found I have over 500 shots of this spot - not the day, just the few hours we spent at Cape Schanck. I think I photographed every step of what I saw up and down the boardwalk! As the sun was setting, the scenery changed. I was attempting to chose which to photos to print and found myself saying "Oh, look at this one, Oh, but look at this one, Oh, but this one is beautiful too!" I was truely blessed to have witnessed such a majestic display of God's glory in that sunset. Thanks for leading me to the experience.

Great memories! I couldn't get enough of this spot! Absolutely breathtaking! The pictures are fantastic, but to experience it in person is so much more!

Wow! I feel so bad for you guys! It must have been a crazy day. Although I am sorry that your parents (and grandma) had a long day, I am glad they were there to help you! It seems you are in for a chilly week as well. I hope that it warms up for your visitors. I had such a beautiful week there, they need to experience that as well! I don't think the weather could have been more perfect that week. Not that I had anything to do with it!
Great photos! I like the summer dresses. I am so glad they all had such a nice first day. I hope you rediscover lots of hobbies and activities as you enjoy having just James around. Enjoy each day of peace and quiet!

Christie, I love your account of our wonderful day! You are correct in your lamenting not being able to include the sounds and feel of the day. I believe that coast to be the most beautiful place on the earth (from my limited experience!) I appoligize at not getting the picture of the guys changing into their wetsuits to you before your post - my computer is currently loading #1030 of 1469 pictures. I had to clear some space on my computer today to make room for all the pictures I took! The photo of the Great Cormorant is fantastic! The pictures don't show unfortunatly how huge it was! Thanks again for a fantastic day!
I agree - excellent pictures! It was great to see so many closeups of my cousins. I miss those brothers of yours! :) I could just hear the voices and laughter in that living room as if I were there. You did a wonderful job of capturing the spirit. As for the New Year, we have yet to celebrate but will be in 12 or so hours. The temp is supposed to be high here - possibly the 40's in Pittsburgh, but I would prefer the poolside New Years party! Looking forward to some of that 90 degree weather.

Beautiful pictures Christie. I am so glad you are having a nice visit with your parents and family. Looks like everyone is enjoying the snow but more importantly enjoying visiting with each other. Lots of good memories I am sure.

Fantastic photos! I had to read this twice - it was so interesting I flew through it the first time to experience the adventure and then the second time to absorb more of the information! Glad to too to see Uncle Joe and Aunt Ruth enjoying themselves so much. I love the koala pictures (had to stop myself from adding 'bear') and the parenting techniques.
WOW! Fantastic views! I love the beach pictures and the rock formations. Beautiful! However, I would have had to have a great telephoto lens to get the shot you did of the lizard. No way would I have been able to stop and look. I'd be afraid it was going to attack! I'm sure it could run faster than me. I can't even look at them at the zoo with thick glass between us. Yikes! The forest and bridge shots were really cool. How neat to be able to look at the trees from above. After hearing about the london bridge story, I think I'd have to ask - did they learn what the mistake was for the collapse so they don't repeat it? That just confirms my fears of swinging bridges! Great post - Like father, like daughter - a pleasure to read :)
Just as I am saying good-bye to our last rose in our garden. Have a great trip and.....many more roses.
