Odds and Ends

We have been valiantly looking for a place to live... it has been frustrating to say the least. We are close to being done. Instead of giving you all a run down of the frustrations, I will give you some random snapshots of what we have done and seen on our breaks from the searching. Have I said I LOVE it here yet?

Jonathan, Jessica and Alyssa

Jessica.
There is always a tree nearby that the kids want to climb.

I LOVE the flowers here!

Fig trees.
They have the coolest roots/branches. I can't imagine drawing them and having them look real.

Our first view of the bay.

I could have stayed at this park all day long. It was at the edge of the bay. And Dad? Note the way ALL the parks are covered here. Give you ideas for the pool?

A seed pod Jonathan found.

Even the bugs are prettier.

Big, happy sigh.

On our way to find a good place for lunch.

Our view of the fireworks show from our balcony at the hotel.

A wonderful welcome to Brisbane show.
