Dad says 'IT' is honesty, Mum says 'IT' is making sure he knows what he's supposed to do, they both say 'IT' is everything ~ friendship, love, mateship, companionship, patience, respect, understanding ~ whatever 'IT' is, they still have it!!!!!!!!!!
....how gorgeous is it?
Dad said that Mum set his heart a flutter again and that he needed a nap after all that frivolity.........
My brothers from left to right, Andy (the baby), Eric, Me & Bob with Mum and Dad.
Our gorgeous eldest daughter Rebecca at the front and our beautiful (future) daughter-in-law Anastasia.
Boys will be boys and Ryan thought that we should all inspect his tongue, very nice it is too Ryan. ;o))
.............and the irrepressible Jett, my great-nephew, mischief bundled into cuteness and I suspect the reason his mother might have a few grey hairs!!
Two adorable granddaughters posing in the gardens, you can see how warm it was, T shirts in September.......! Emily from Western Australia and Caitlin from here in Victoria
Chris & Anastasia, our youngest son and his beautiful bride to be...........
Our youngest daughter Sarah, over from Western Australia, cuddling up to her Dad..........
I can't believe that I forgot to tell you what my niece gathered together for Mum and Dad.
She had procured letters of congratulations from everyone from the local (Geelong) Mayor up. She had :
Premier of Victoria- John Brumby,
Federal Member for Geelong,
The Governor of Victoria- David De Kretser,
The Prime Minister of Australia- Kevin Rudd,
The Governor General of Australia- Quentin Bryce.
Then the biggie:
The Queen of England, Elizabeth II.
For a pair of ex-Brits this was just amazing and wonderful, just topped off the day for them. Something to keep for the rest of their lives.
Well done Kylie.
