A busy week

We had a very nice two weeks with the visit of Grandma Takeo from Japan. Celebrating her birthday and visiting the Blue Mountains were among the highlights. I think she most enjoyed quiet days in the garden with the kids.

Last night we went to the Outback Steakhouse to get a taste of the "real" Australia. I was so impressed by the lengths the restaurant went to make the experience seem authentic. They had large murals of the desert on the walls, piped in aboriginal music, and all Australa's finest on tap. Best of all, it seems the customers really wanted to get in on the act as well: all of them were speaking in an Australian accent! (I could tell it was fake, though)

Today was "Free Farm Day" in Camden and we had a wonderful time: petting animals, milking a cow, having a picnic, watching sheep shearing, listening to country music. It was very enjoyable.

Here are some photos. Enjoy.
