Australia, a postcard

My parents recently returned to New Jersey from their Australian experience. Here is a brief picture postcard of their stay in Melbourne and side trips to the Great Ocean Road and Tasmania. 

We celebrated milestone birthdays and witnessed many firsts, including first skips, first fireworks (purchased in the grocery store next to the milk), first words, first meat pies, first alpha male standoffs with Aussie wildlife and first down unda’ adventures.

Faces from home are welcome things for an expat.  It’s nice to see that some things never change.

They can now say, “we have Family In Oz.”
