This year was a massive year for Molly with so much being packed in. Molly’s tenth year starts with the continuation of our California Holiday in 2007 and Molly’s walk down Princess Lane at Disneyland. It finishes with our 2 month holiday in England and Europe in 2008 and is spliced in the middle with Christmas at Kiama, NSW. As I said there was a lot packed into this year.
The California Holiday was one of the best. Disneyland, Universal Studios, Sea World and San Diego Zoo with a 7 year old and 10 year old was perfect. Molly went swimming with a Beluga Whale at Sea World which you can see in the video. We took in Kings Canyon, Sequoia National Park and Yosemite National Park. Then finished off with Napa Valley, San Francisco, Monterey and down the Big Sur to LA. There is some video of Molly enjoying the spoils of Napa Valley.
In addition to all the travelling Molly had a lot on back home with dance and theatre – including starring as the Lorax in a local play. There is a cute scene with Molly doing an Indonesian dance with her friends from school – Dila was a school friend from Indonesia.
The video also shows a huge achievement for Molly – after many years she was finally tall enough to put the Angel on top of the Christmas Tree without any help. Christmas was at a beach house in Kiama, NSW. It was a great Christmas with the girls doing a lot of Boogie Boarding and later that year Molly tried to surf. The Hobson’s also came to Kiama for Christmas Day – in the video Molly is in her Moon Shoes which was a present from the Hobson’s and all the rage that year.
Even after all this however the biggest event was that it was the year we got Charlie – our Beagle.
The final scenes are from our huge holiday in England and Europe. The shots are largely from Germany and Switzerland with the snow and Molly skiing.
The highlight of the video however was Molly’s dubious hat choices for the year
