Australia Day

G'day all!!  January 26th is Australia Day.  Australia day commemorates the arrival of the 1st Fleet at Sydney Cove in 1788 and the proclamation at that time of British sovereignty.  So naturally, Kaellyn and I had a fun day.  We watched a movie of Koalas and I sang "Koocka Burra sits on an Old Gum Tree" that I remember from the Barney days with Bryce.  Then we watched/listened to a concert on DVD that I have of Delta Goodrem my favourite singer who happens to be from Australia.  Kaellyn also enjoyed dancing to Kylie Minogue because she has the best dance songs.  Then I made lemon lime and bitters.  Which is a few drops of bitters with Roses lime juice and sprite.  It's a popular drink in Australia.

In the afternoon we went and hung out with Max and Suzie and the kids ate "fairy bread" which is a very common cookie in Australia.  It's bread with Nutella or butter and sprinkles.  Needless, to say both kids LOVED their fairy bread.  That evening when Briss came home we had some Australian wine and watched a movie where Hugh Jackman is an Australian playing an Australian in a movie called Australia.  Couldn't get more Australian than that, can you?  So happy 'Straya day!!
