Australia Day

Today is Australia Day and a public holiday for all.  We headed into the city once we got ourselves organised, no mean feat I can assure you when 4 children are involved!!  We wandered along Southbank stopping for lunch and ice cream before going into Alexandra Gardens to join in with the festivities.  We met up with Andrea & Chris and their boys Kyle, Kaleb & Aidan.  The kids loved the farm animals, looking at the fire trucks and watching the Australia Day institution which is the ‘Great Duck Race’. Yes, this is when thousands of yellow rubber ducks race along a section of the Yarra River with the first duck into the Parks Victoria Duck Catcher at the end of the 200-metre course winning a new Mitsubishi Lancer.  How exciting!
