Delayed yet again- I feel like all my posts should start this way :/
Here is the quick recap of life in Sydney in the weeks after our first trip back to the states…
First we had some visitors from the states stay with us for a few weeks in July. It is really nice to have good friends visiting Australia… it gives us a chance to experience things again with them and appreciate how amazing it is here. As with anything, you start to forget how great things are when it is just your day to day life. We did lots of fun outings to the zoo, wine country, all around Sydney and drove around to spot some kangaroos in the wild. Good times indeed.
A bit blurry, but you can kind of make out the kangaroo there.
Sorry about the poor picture quality (iphone from a distance), we have our new camera that I have been
playing around with. This will remedy the issue of bad pictures!
Lovely picture of the girls during our wine tasting adventure.
Some pictures with the new camera. This was at Wentworth Falls.
Not sure where we were exactly here... But a pretty picture anyways.
The hubby and I in front of the Three Sisters.
Gingerbread biscotti. These were ridiculously good. I will be making them again and will definitely post the recipe.
The required Christmas Sugar Cookies.
Just some of the other cookies I made... I'm telling you I went baking crazy! Yes, those on the right are peanut butter kisses that a lot of people back home make for the holidays. Long story with these ones, but pretty much no one besides Americans like Hershey's Chocolate.
So even though I have a stash here, I filled it with homemade chocolate-peanut butter ganache instead, as to keep all our friends from the UK happy :)
This doesn't really show the space well, but this was about half way
through painting the living room area.
Weekend bushwalk from the new place.
View when finishing our morning run on the new route along the beach.
Pretty great way to start the day!
View from running with the crowds down towards Kings Cross.
Okay, those were the highlights of those few months. Here are a couple other pictures we took with the new camera over the past few months...
I was trying to be all artistic with flower photos.
On a walk along Lavender Bay
This one is my favorite. The end of a day at the Taronga Zoo and this poor guy had clearly had enough... The hubby has called it "Come on Mate" :)
Next up, a recap of trip #2 to the states…
