It was a lot of fun to visit Grand,a and Grandpa at their new home at Lake Macquarie. We left on Christmas Day and the girls went on their first ever plane ride! They did soooo well. Tori watched Dora the Explorer on a portable DVD player, and Eadie slept comfortably in my arms. Such a relief!! They were SO excited as we waited:
My parents have a beautiful new house situated on a canal running off the lake and it is just gorgeous. Ducks and boats float past and there is nothing more relaxing than sitting on your lounge-room couch and looking out over beautiful water. Here's some pics:
Lake Macquarie, for those who don't know, is about 30 mins out of New Castle, a beautiful part of the country. UNFORTUNATELY it was raining the entire time we were there!! So we weren't able to do the 'touristy' things we had planned. EADIE also decided to cut her first two teeth while we were there, so we had a couple of nights and early mornings in the shower attempting to reduce fevers and trying to calm her. Poor baby. But the girls still had a great time. We even managed to get them to sleep! Uh yes, Eadie is on the floor inbetween the wardrobe and the couch... pretty nifty, eh??
Jamie, Cassandra and the girls also made it down the same time we were there. We only had a couple of days with them, but it was fun to hang out and the girls absolutely loved being at Grandma's place together again:
Between teething and the rain, it was all a little too full on for us to go through it in someone else's home (even if they were my parents!), so we ended up leaving a couple of days early. As usual, the day after we changed our flight plans was the first sunny day we had had all week, so we were happy to have one day to get out and about. But it was great to come home and Eadie's teeth are growing great, so that's the main thing!! We are really excited to head back down in the next few months - here's hoping the weather will be better!! we were able to get some pretty snaps in though. Here are some:
