A road trip.....

Miss Elizabeth singing

Sydney to Melbourne, Geelong, Mildura and home again. That was last week, we drove to Melbourne for Steve to go to a SCA state coordinators conference in Geelong. Elizabeth DD2 had made the final of Melbourne Fresh at Revolver on Tuesday night so we got to see her sing for the first time live. Chris DS2 came as well and spent the time with Elizabeth in Melbourne while Steve and I went to Geelong for his conference.
I spent time discovering Geelong, National Wool Museum, Westfield, local op-shops, relaxing by the pool and stitching hexies. 
Chris caught the train to Geelong on Thursday afternoon from where we traveled to Mildura arriving about 11.30pm.
We spent Friday exploring while Josh DS1 was at school (he's a teacher), Saturday we went to the Farmers markets and Aroundagain think op shop on grand scale. We went for a drive on Saturday afternoon to Wentworth over the border in NSW where the Murray and Darling rivers meet, with all the rain that the area has seen the park was flooded, the river was running fast and the loch had water running freely through it.
Sunday after breakfast we left Josh and Jac to head home, we left about 8am and headed up through Hay, Wagga Wagga and up the Hume to home. A great week away, visiting the children and the kitten. Now for all the photos from the week
