It's winter

It seemed like there were a few milestones to consider this (long) weekend in wintry Canberra. Ros and Pete were here for a visit to deliver early birthday wishes to our Mum (102 years old in July) and to enjoy a good old sisters and spouses catch up!

We took them all to see progress at C5 in Campbell in between dinner, lunches, Hyatt breakfast, drinks at Pedlar (our local at Campbell), and a film at the Palace. We had cold and clear weather all weekend - perfect Canberra winter days.
Our apartment block at C5 is rising steadily now. The pic below is the South West corner of the block (the back view). They're working on level one now, only four more to go!
This (pic below) was how this same corner of the apartment looked 2 months ago on the 23rd May.......that looks like good progress to me!
The pic below shows the North East corner of the block facing towards its own parkland and views of Mt Ainslie (and the Northern sun).
The girls are loving a long weekend, especially the chance for breakfast at the Hyatt and a play at the C5 park and a chance to hear (up close) the 21 gun salute for the Queen's 90th birthday at nearby Rond Terrace by the lake.
Josh and Jody and the girls are celebrating their first year in their "new" house this weekend. Wow, hasn't that time gone quickly. The pic below is not at their house (no graffiti there) - but at a nearby sports park where the girls were practising their bike riding, gutter hopping and standing starts this afternoon.
