Off to Sydney to pick up a car

Graham has been looking for another car for a long time - he's really done his research.
This lovely long weekend we headed off to Sydney to pick up the one he's chosen.
First it was the airport and a plane trip (again!). I was really, REALLY apprehensive because it was a tiny plane and a horrible day. But we made it!

Eb filling in some time at the airport - she loves to take the smarties OUT of the biscuit before she eats it!

Taken from our little plane....it wasn't so bad after all :)

I do it myself mummy!

Happy snuggled up with Suixi bear

...and snugly :)

huummmm - it WAS a small plane

waiting for the bus to get us into town....

Lunch at Darling Harbour....

My little dancing girl!

We have had some interesting times with dance. Ebony loves it - but because we've been swimming in the morning and then have the hour long trip back out to home for dance she often falls asleep and I have to wake her to change her and get her ready for dance. Needless to say, some times she doesn't want to dance...until the last 10 minutes! then she's fine :)

with one of her 'best friends'....Axel

Mish returns!

Ah - some more fun times with a visit from our dear friend Mish. She occupied Eb for a while doing some cooking. I'm not at all sure who had more fun!

even the damaged one got lots of attention!

We took a day trip to Gapstead Winery - how beautiful is this place! it was a perfect day to sit and sip on a glass of wine and look at the beauty surrounding us.
