More Fun with Mum and Dad
Last weekend, we had BBQ for some of the friends we've made here.  We thought it would be great for Mum and Dad to be able t oput faces to the names they've heard so often on the phone andI think everyone enjoyed it.  We had around 25 adults and maybe 8 or 9 kids and Dad and Mike did us proud with their steaks, kebabs and burgers on the barbie.
 
Next day, Dad and Mike went sea fishingwith Neil and his son James and although they didn't catch anything, I think they had a thoroughly good time.  While the men were off fishing, Mum and I took the girls to Sovereign Hill (http://www.sovereignhill.com.au/?id=sovhill) which is an outdoor museum which has recreated what it was like in victoria around the time of the goldrush.  We had a go at panning for gold and the girls got all dressed up and had an olde worlde photo taken.  We had loads of fun looking in all the old shops and watched gold being smelted.  All in all it was a really great day out and we were shattered when we got back at tea time.
 
Incidentally, because Mike was taking Dad and Neil and his son and friend to the fishing, they took my car so I had to take his.  Fair enough, but I haven't ever driven Mike's car and it's a manual, and it's been 6 months since I drove a manual.  I did Ok in it once I remembered that the pedal I thought was the clutch was actually the brake !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Sssh, don't tell Mike lol.
