Melbourne Holiday

We have just returned from Melbourne and a great little getaway. Abbey travelled really well and the weather held out for most of the time. We caught up with John, Stacey, Kelly and Chelsea and Elliot from Kylie's side, as well as Phil's mum and dad and sister Alison. We also stayed a night with our friend Brett who showed us around Kinglake after the fires, which was interesting. We pretty much walked around everywhere, including all over the CBD, Fitzroy Gardens, Lygon Street, Southbank etc. Phil went to watch the Saints beat the Kangaroo's, and unfortunately saw the Demons get smashed by Collingwood at the MCG. Highlights were Brunetti's cakes, the views of Melbourne from the Observation deck, Japanese tourists taking photos of Abbey in the streets, and coffee and tea in the dark laneways of inner city Melbourne. Phil's mum and dad and Alison are also staying with us in Alice Springs for the next few days, seeing as much of Abbey as possible before they go home.
