Tokyo DisneySea – Selfies, Characters and Costumes

With iPhones in hand it meant DisneySea was a snap of selfies as we made our way through the day.

Characters would pop up here and there but we were unsure if we were allowed to get photos with them.  Most people just seemed to form a circle and clap and dance.  Em was bolder and would go up to get the photo!!!

Billimina Shelter – Aboriginal Art – Grampians

Billimina Shelter is one of four Aboriginal Art sites in the Grampians and although it is a 1 hour drive to the far west side of the Grampians, from Halls Gap, it is worth it as a chance to take in the full splendour of the Grampians and to also see a great display of Aboriginal Art.

A long drive but a short 1km walk through ferns to see the art.  The Billimina Campground was a great place to relax and have lunch before heading off for the walk.

Emily Movie – Age 6 – 2006 to 2007

This is the sixth instalment for Emily and follows her at the age of five through to her sixth birthday. The #1 Single when she turned six was “I Wish I Was a Punk Rocker (With Flowers in My Hair)” by Sandi Thom from the “Smile…It Confuses People” album. Unfortunately due to copyright the version of the video I have uploaded does not have the single playing, instead I have kept the original video sound in place.

It starts with scenes from our 4WD adventure following Burke and Wills into the Corner Country (where Queensland, NSW and SA come together) hence the swing into water holes.  The opening scene is in Brisbane as we drove right along the Queensland and NSW border at the end of the trip to spend time with the Hobson’s in Brisbane.  This was one of the longest and absolutely most boring drives one can do!!!

Lots o scenes playing in the backyard at Heysen Street and with the Hosking’s who were good friends in Canberra. 

Her first day at school was also this year.

Towards the end there are scenes from our big holiday in California including Disneyland and Snow White, swimming with the Dolphins in San Diego and rollerblading along St Monica Boulevard.

Finishes with the ice-cream Birthday Cake at mum and dads.
