I leave tomorrow for a two-week vacation. I’ll visit my brother and sister-in-law in London, then meet up with cousins at Heathrow for a trip to Australia. I’m going along as a “mother’s helper” because they have four little girls: aged 10, 7, and three-year-old twins.
The eldest of the girls was my “first baby”: she and her family live in Cambridge and I was a regular visitor when my now-husband was doing a postdoc there. Now, her baby sisters are older than she was at the time!
In “Oz”, we’re headed near Brisbane, where the girls’ father is an invitee at the Woodford Planting Festival. Then we’re off to the Sunshine Coast outside of Noosa.
Update: We’re back! The twins were equally enthralled with the cats at our rental house and the expensive outings to an aquarium and koala sanctuary. My favorite was definitely the koala sanctuary. Willow says she’s my little koala.
