Stralia Day

Brett is an Oregonian girl who met and married Wayne, an Aussie boy, and lived in Sydney for the past several years where we met. They moved back to Portland about 6 months before we did and shared all sorts of tips about US Immigration, moving companies and the like.

So it’s only right that we spend Australia Day with them and their friends. They had a barbie of course. Complete with sausages, homemade Lamingtons…


face tattoos (and a very cute boy Gus’ age)


a pack of wild kids who migrated from play room to play room


men with beer


and of course afternoon tea.


Now, if they just could have arranged for us all to have the Friday and Monday off, we’d have never known we left.

Except perhaps for the fresh snow that morning.
