Our Australian Family

One of the highlights of our trip to Australia was reconnecting with our nephew Andrew and finally meeting Maddy and Sam and Max.  We spent a perfect day at their home nestled in a Sydney suburb high on a hill and surrounded by trees and birds and huge insects. Andrew cooked up “snags on the barby” (I have no idea how to spell that one!) and we spent the day visiting and laughing and getting to know each other.  (Maddy, not only are you a wonderful addition to the family, but you have raised two incredible, delightful sons.) I can’t wait to see you all again.

    Yes, Alison, that’s right! When I was a teenager I pretty much thought my cousin Andy was THE COOLEST person in the world. We worshipped his band and even got to meet Keanu Reeves when Andy’s band opened for Keanu’s.

    Hi cousin! Great pics mom.
