Christmas, Western Australian style

Went out with the family today, taking in a trip on the Swan River. We stopped off for a barbie and sunk a few tinnies too. It was a nice day out, and I've included a few pics below.

To those of you enjoying snow, sleet, rain, cold temperatures ... ha ha ha. Then again, we almost hit 46C on Boxing Day (115F) so you can laugh at that. (It wasn't that hot today, or we wouldn't have ventured outside.)

And greets to my eldest daughter, who turned 13 yesterday. Yes, we now have a teenager in the house ... fortunately, she's not the wild sort.

Braggart. It was in the mid fifties (~13C) or so here, with a low in the upper thirties (~3C). But come August, we'll see who's laughing about the cold/hot differential :).

Anyways, congrats on getting your daughter to the teen years, and good luck. I'm dreading my boys getting there. The eldest is already something of a lady's man.

Wow, glass in the windows and all. Am impressed.

Sounds like it was a great day, and the pics are nice too.

I'm still trying to wrap my brain around being 115F on my birthday. I don't know if I'll ever get used to Christmas in summer.

Well, here in Newfounland, Canada, were in the middle of a blizzard and it's well below zero. The car is buried and we're snowed in.

Merry Christmas.

I have a sister in Mandurrah, not snowing there either. lol
