Australia Day 2013

Obligatory trimmings

Australia Day in our family is always celebrated as my Dad is lucky enough to have his birthday on the 26th January. This year was no different, however in Brisbane we had a weekend of wild winds and storms that brought flooding to many areas throughout Queensland. Again. Thankfully there was no damage to the house, just some stir crazy kids by the end of a long weekend from being cooped up inside. Eating kept us entertained!

The birthday cake. I can't take the credit for this sadly.

And of course the pavlova. Typical Aussie fanfare, I know my Dad enjoyed it. Mum has a knack for making the best pavlova. I enjoyed decorating it with the help of my niece. I think she was more excited about the cream than the fruit on top!
