Todd's Birthday

One of the main reasons we headed to Adelaide was to celebrate our son's 30th Birthday.  Although he lives in Burleigh Heads, he wanted to celebrate his birthday with family and old friends from where he grew up.  Todd and Tenelle flew in from Brisbane and we spent a wonderful few days with them.
The cake says it all!

Nearly a bush fire with sparklers for candles!

The main celebration was a picnic in the park (casual and no fuss was Todd's request) - originally going to be held in Rymill Park but unfortunately the timing coincided with the major horse event, so had to settle for South Terrace Park.  The day was sunny and Todd had a great day catching up with quite a few friends and relatives before continuing on the celebrations in the city with a group of "young ones"!  All in all he had a terrific celebration and was very appreciative of those who attended.

We spent another week in Adelaide where we caught up with family and friends, had doctor check ups, car serviced etc.  Thanks to everyone for arranging breakfasts, lunches and dinners - wonderful to catch up and hear news of families.  Adelaide does not seem to change and gives us a feeling of familiarity when driving around the suburbs and city.  Most of all we appreciate catching up with friends and relatives which we do not see when living our lifestyle.
