Mornington - Saturday 13th January - Thursday 18th January 2007
 We invaded the Noonan househod for  five days of "normal" life with cooking and washing TV and general family madness. Steve started as he means to go on by bolting on the additional sports package which following the Test Match in Sydney came with a day at Kynton races supporting the well known Victorian horse trainer Mr Tony Noonan! We had a great time and really appreciated the relaxed welcome, use of washing machine and computer!! Thanks Tom, Sam, Jake and Laura for looking after us all and giving up your beds and bringing Jack up to professional Playstation level. Thanks Gabe and Tony for great hospitality.

Melbourne - Thursday 18th January - Wednesday 24th January 2007
The following week was spent seeing as many relatives and friends that we could fit in, taking in the sites of Dingley, Queenscliffe, Blackburn, Glen Iris. We had so much fun, chat, food and wine (particularly Uncle Maurice's cellar)! Favorite family saying of the week "I'm sloshed" We  have really enjoyed seeing everyone. Massive thanks. David, Lisa and family once again we had a brilliant time especially seeing everyone at the familly reunion.
We felt very proud to hear that our cousin Emma Dennis was competing in the Youth Olympics in Gymnastics. Her fantastic performance resulted in her finishing 6th overall in the world and Top Australian, securing a Silver Medal in the Vault. Great stuff, roll on Beijing!
Steve following on with the sports pack with a trip to the  Australian Open at the Rod Laver Arena (Thanks Tony). We celebrated Tom's 18th with the family at Orm & Gill's in Ivanhoe and another night of laughs and great wine from Orm's cellar.
In all of this we managed to fit in one day of sightseeing in Melbourne City around the South Bank and a great boat trip to Williamstown.
