Sydney via Instagram

I took even more photos of our trip on my iPhone with Instagram.
So here are a hodgepodge of those...

This was when Jeff was climbing the bridge.

A cute little cafe we found in Kings Cross.

During a downpour we spent some time in this quaint little bookshop.
I probably could have stayed here all day.

A wishing fountain in King's Cross.
Loved this.

I took this photo while Jeff was climbing the bridge.

Jeff finally got some starbucks.

A view from the faerie.

From the top of the Sydney Eye Tower.
It took a lot for me to go up this,
but what a view!

Thanks for joining me on our trip to Sydney!

Sydney, NSW Australia - Day 3

 On our third day in Sydney we took the Faerie to Manly.
It's a little island, which quickly because my favorite part of Sydney!
Water you can go in and not be afraid of jellyfish or crocodiles!!

Can you see the seahorse?
Another part of our discount tickets was Manly Sea Life Sanctuary.
This was such a beautiful place, I really want to bring the kids here.

I could have sat here all day.

The view from the faerie.

It was so windy, most of the boats were sideways.

Another view of the Sydney Harbour.

A carnival cruise ship was docked in the harbor.

Luna Park.

A night view

We walked 25,000 steps on this day.  We were so tired, but we saw and did so much on this day.  The next day I got up early to get my flight back to Darwin.  Jeff got to sleep in a bit for his flight back to America.  This was such a perfect way to end his three months in Australia with us.  We made lots of fun memories!  Thanks, Jeff!

Sydney, NSW Australia - Day 2

Day 2.  Still cold and rainy, but we made the most of it!
Jeff climbed the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
He really enjoyed it.  I'm terrified of heights, so I just took photos from the harbour.

This isn't his group, but you get the idea!

This is the photo Jeff got from his tour.
What an amazing view!

During his Harbour Bridge Climb, I went on a 2 hour tour of Sydney on a double deck tour bus.

Some sites around Sydney.

You can recycle your cans or bottles and get money towards the bus, train, etc.
Awesome idea!

Love this little street.  

(I have heaps more photos, but my internet is a bit slow.)

Day 3 coming soon.

Behold, now is the day of salvation...

Cody accepted Christ as his own personal Savior.

Glory to God!

He's been asking a lot of questions the past few weeks.  Tonight we read a beautiful book about Heaven, and he had even more questions.  Then he said, "Mommy, will you pray with me to ask Jesus to come into my heart."  I've never heard more precious words.  My heart is full.  Thank you, Jesus.

Sydney, NSW Australia! Day 1

Finally I'm sharing photos from my Sydney trip.

We stayed at The Bayswater Hotel in Kings Cross.
We got a really great deal on the room.

I love the orange couch and chair!

We had bought discount tickets to go to several attractions.
Our first one was Wild life Sydney Zoo.
Patrick and I took the kids here almost two years ago.

It was raining, so this koala was hiding his face.

Most of what we saw here was in our backyard (except for the koala).

It rained almost our entire time in Sydney.
We haven't had rain where I live for several months, so I enjoyed it!

Next with our discount tickets we went to Madame Tussauds Wax Museum.
Its so eerie how real they look.  I was waiting for one to be real!

Jeff photo bombing the Princess and Prince.

Just chilling with the queen.

Jeff with President Obama.

Jeff with Keith Urban.  They had Nicole Kidman, but I can't find my photo of her.  :(

They had an exhibit showing how they made the statues.

The gorgeous Audrey Hepburn.

I tried to keep Jeff on his best behavior.

Cody loves this photo!

Jeff phoning home.

Next we went to the Sea Life Aquarium.
I didn't take many photos here because there was a very large school group here,
and we did a pretty quick walk through.

Stay tuned for day 2 in Sydney!
