|Happy 6th Birthday Chloe!|
Our week in Sydney was fabulous. The weather, except for the first day, was glorious. Our CT friends/Aussie family, the Calis, were there too. So, Jodi and I had the kids to entertain for the week while our hubbies worked. I thoroughly enjoyed shopping the Markets in The Rocks on Sunday. Doing the markets with Jodi rather than Uri is a completely different experience (no offense, baby). In short, we shopped like Chicks! We found a wonderful Asian clothes designer and each found a fabulous, inexpensive new frock. Jodi helped me find a gorgeous, inexpensive gold-plated chunky necklace, too. And, it took me coming all the way to Oz to buy my first pair of Uggs. Funny, because I am not sure I'll need them, but they do look so cute -- greyish, green with ties up the back. Our kids, three in all, complained the entire time, but we were determined to get through every vendor.
On Monday, off we went on the 30 minute ferry ride to Manly Beach. One word to describe it: AWESOME! The beach, the shopping strip called The Corso and the weather made it quite enjoyable. The kids had so much fun playing in the water although we did not allow them to go in too far as neither Jodi nor I had our suits with us.
