We had a great time. Hung out by the pool, had seven meals a day, visited a few theme parks, walked on the beach, went shopping and tried to co-ordinate the sleeping and eating schedules of toddlers, teenagers and the middle-aged. This is me feeding the lorikeets at Currumbin Wildlife Park.
The boys just loved hanging with their cousins, big and small. The last day was photo day - the men in our family run to a certain physical type of fat little toddlers, gangly boys, lanky teenagers and tall solid men. So here is the evolution in action .... although careful perusal may show an exchange student :)
The week went unbelievably quickly - my family are all really nice people who know how to have a good time. I have never understood those families that say Christmas always ends in a fight, or half the siblings are holding grudges or not talking. How on earth does that work? And why?
