Anzac Day

ANZAC was the name given to the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps soldiers who landed on the Gallipoli Peninsula in Turkey early on the morning of 25 April 1915 during the First World War. As a result, April 25th is a public holiday across Australia for ceremonies of remembrance for all the men and women who fought and died.

We spent the day with Auntie Christina and Uncle Hamish. First stop was the market to pick up food for our picnic lunch then we headed to the Botanic Gardens. Marie, Clint and Frankie also joined us. It was a lovely afternoon.

Charlie fell asleep when out running with Alan (their way of avoiding the market!!)

We saw this on playing fields as we walked back to the car – the message seems a little dramatic!!

Last night we all went to Campari at Port Melbourne for dinner.  It was fun and great to spend time with Auntie C & Uncle H.  Here’s some pics.

Alan with a very happy Charlie!

And then after a walk around in the fresh air he was fast asleep in the pram
