Anzac Day 2009

Had a fantastic but extremely moving and tiring day.

We were up about 3.30am as Brent participated in Dawn service again this year and he also went into Sydney and participated in the big March there. I was EXTREMELY proud to see Brent got to hold the banner and I had no idea just how big this event was until we got in there, and until we followed him around for his second lap...he did over army boots...OUCH!!! The whole parade takes around 7 hours but was Im growing older Im getting more patriotic and am moved more by these sad to see so few of the old diggers and how frail they are..

After the parade was finished and we were all a little tired we headed back to Darling Harbour where our car was parked, and decided on a "quick" visit to the Maritime Museum. After a couple of hours we all felt it was time to head home..with a quick stop in to Hogs Breath Cafe for a yummy dinner.

We (well me and Brent) were falling asleep in front of the tele so we all headed off to bed about 10pm and have woken up today all looking like zombies from "The Day of the Dead"
