Viva Bris Vegas!

There's something quite lovely about going 'home'. Although, life goes on even when you're not there to see it and it felt like we spent most of our trip saying "Gee, that's new!" There are so many new buildings that the skyline is not quite as we remember it.

Brisbane welcomed us back with open arms and we spent most of our time catching up with as many family and friends as possible.

Hubby and I got to enjoy a night off too! We stayed in a hotel at Southbank - this was the view from our room...
After a few drinks by the pool and an incredible dinner at a restaurant on the river, we went to see The Lion King at the Lyric Theatre - which was just fantastic!
Next morning, Grandma and Grandad brought the kids into town and we visited the museum, the brave ones (not me) rode the wheel...

Then we walked along the river into Southbank Parklands...
Getting a nice family photo is ridiculously hard with all these monkeys...
We had lots of fun at the beach and aqua play area too...
We also got a bit of time to enjoy a weekend at the sunshine coast with family and to tick off a few of our 'Must Dos'- including swimming at a beach without crocs...



and visiting Montville and Maleny and eating lots of yummy things like locally produced cheeses. This place is even more mystical and magical when it's shrouded in cloud.
We even got to show the kids where we got married. And that incredible view.
Quite a bit of shopping happened to! Myer? Ikea? Yes, please!

Missing 'home' more than ever after this trip.
