christmas x 3.

(I forgot my memory card for my camera so please ignore the sad quality of these pictures...)

Last Christmas we had Nana and Poppy over from Perth for the holidays. I can't remember when it was decided, but at some point we made the decision that Christmas 2013 would be spent in Perth. It was Lachlan's first trip to Perth and the first time he was able to meet some of Max's side of the family (beside Nana and Poppy of course!).

We arrived in Perth a few days before Christmas and spent our first few nights with Max's childhood friend, Warren, and his family. We love spending time with Warren and Monica! They are two of the nicest people I think I have ever met. We were able to spend some time at their new house, swim in their new pool, explore their new neighbourhood and just visit. It was a great way to start our holiday!


After a few days on the north side of Perth, we headed south to Nana and Poppy's house. On our way down we got a chance to meet up with Elizabeth and her Aussie boyfriend, Gareth. She is also a Gulf Breeze girl who found her way over to Oz and is now living in Perth. Such a small, amazing world we live in!

After arriving a Nana and Poppy's, we got in touch with one of Max's older brothers, Mick, and arranged an afternoon visit to their place. They put together an amazing Christmas feast and we all sat around and caught up on life. Lachlan had a great time playing with his cousins and fishing in Uncle Mick and Auntie Jenny's pond.

On Christmas morning we woke up and opened gifts with Nana, Poppy, Uncle Scott and Uncle Andrew. Lachlan had so much fun open his presents this year (as opposed to last year when he was only a 2.5 months old and slept through the entire morning).


After six days in Perth, we flew back to Brisbane for a night before departing for our next adventure. In that time we had a quick Christmas morning in our own house where Lachlan got to see his first car. It was love at first sight (as I am sure you can imagine!).

And then after our camping adventure (more on that later) we had our third and final Christmas morning (or afternoon really) with Byron!
