Arrivals


The really exciting news that I mentioned on Monday happened on Wednesday night....

Sibs and her cousin 

There was quite a bit of waiting around...


Some false sightings....

Until eventually Nana and Papa walked through the arrivals gate!

blurry, but wonderful


There were hugs and showing off of new boots and grown feet!


Chatting and catching up...



 Except this time it's different...

This time Nana and Papa travelled on a one way ticket!

Welcome to your new home.

    1. Thank you Gilly. I agree, they are brave, but they have been visiting Australia for the past 15 years so hopefully will settle very quickly.
