Well the Sawin Family had a successful trip down under. Here’s the run down.
On Christmas Night, we took the overnight flight to Sydney. The kids did great. Thank god for the on-demand television and iPods we had on hand. Here is the mandatory tourist shot of the Sydney Opera House.
We took in the Taronga Zoo…
Petted some fish at the Sydney Aquarium…
And learned that Koala Bears were bigger than we thought.
Grace and Riley were saying “Come on Mom and Dad, enough with the photos…”
On New Year’s Eve we found a nice spot to watch the fireworks from.
After a week in Sydney, we rented a Camper Van and drove up the coast.
Along the way we saw a Big Banana…
And a Big Prawn!
And petted a Koala Bear…
And even a Kangaroo!
Grace scared the heck out of Mom and Dad riding the swing ride by herself.
Riley had to use a big Abacus to count how much money we were spending.
On a nice day, we made it to Surfer’s Paradise to take in the sun and the waves.
We left the Gold Coast and headed to Brisbane for our last two nights. We were lucky enough to run into Dora and Boots there.
In the end, the whole Sawin Family had a great holiday in Australia!
