Australia Day

It’s 26th January 2010, Australia Day, weather forecast was maximum 31 degrees celsius – and we felt it. We just came back from the McLeod’s Australia Day BBQ Bash in Leichhardt. After sourcing the nearest bottlo (liquor store) near Anne-Marie and Dean’s place (for Edward’s beers and my coke, as I was driving) we arrived at the McLeod’s place with a few guests already there. We set up our pram and chairs in the available shady spot and started to mingle among the guests.

Josh a bit shy and wanted to stick by his dad, at first

 

Whole lamb on a spit - looks good!

 

Once we told Josh that he could have some doritos and lemonade, he was happy to sit by the steps (but making sure his dad wasn’t too far away). After a while, he got a bit more confident and mingled with the other guests (or more like making a bee-line for the doritos bowl – we used his toy truck as a bowl).

After a few drinks and catching up with friends, the food was ready. Yum to the lamb and all the lovely salads that went with it. Onya Anne-Marie and Dean.

Post BBQ, we got home and got the boys down to the huggies. Josh and Zach enjoyed playing chasing and giving each other hugs and kisses – it was such a joy to watch.
