Fun In The Sunshine

Everytime we come to Australia, I fall in love with nature all over again. Although it is abit colder than HK, the warm sunshine fills you up and you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. I think the reason why I feel this way is also because Hubby's parents lives outside of Melbourne, around 40 minutes drive away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Their backyard is bigger than anyone could ever imagine living in HK. They've also got 2 dogs and 6 chickens. I often see birds having a swim in their bird bath and rabbits hopping along when the dogs aren't paying attention. With nature like this to wake up to everyday, it gets harder and harder to leave each time we come visit.

It took Boy Wonder a day or so, but he got all friendly again with Chilly and Molly. When the nights are cold, Grandma and Pop let the dogs in to hang with the family. Here's a picture of Boy Wonder and I chillin with Chilly.

Boy Wonder also goes out to the backyard daily to feed the chickens with Grandma or Pop and get the eggs. We hung out in the backyard yesterday to watch Pop do some yard work and take in some sunshine. Boy Wonder even got on Pop's mower for a quick picture.

Boy Wonder then saw the only 2 oranges growing in Grandma and Pop's orange bush and plucked them off. Here's Grandma peeling them lovingly so Boy Wonder could have a taste. Although they were quite small, there were real juicey and tastey.

He also checked out the newly dug up dirt and saw quite a few bugs and worms. Although he wasn't scared of them, he made sure Grandma was the one who picked them up to have a look and not him. Smart kid.

So overall we're having a great time in Australia as usual. Hubby takes the train into the city every morning to go to work. Thank goodness his job allows him to do that so we doesn't have to take extra days off.

Hubby's brother's wedding will be this Friday then the marathon will be on Sunday. Will post more pics when I get them.
