I'd been invited to dinner with girls I used to teach with, the kids had never been into the city and it was R-L's birthday, so we booked one night at Rydges, Southbank for a mini holiday.
The hotel was great, dinner with the girls was great, wandering around the city was great and visiting the cousins at the Gold Coast was great! We had the best time!!
View from our hotel room
We went on the Wheel of Brisbane
Well, Isaac, Ava & I did...
Rob watched, can you spot him?
We visited the museum
We strolled through Southbank Parklands
The night time view
I got dressed for dinner
And loved catching up with my old friends
Saturday morning we walked over the bridge to the mall,
browsed in our favourite second hand bookstore and
played in the Botanic Gardens
Walked along Riverside
Passed the River Queens
Caught a river ferry (Ava remembered how much she doesn't like boats)
The kids caught a ride when we were checking out
Then we went to the Gold Coast for R-L's birthday
