Week 4 of 52 Ancestors 2021 – Favourite Photo

Week 4 (Jan. 25-31): Favorite Photo

Once again it was really hard to decide about a favourite photo. There are literally hundreds I could think of but I decided to choose one that was taken on a family holiday to Queensland in 2009.

This was our second family holiday. The first had been to the same place in 2000 but the kids were so young then that it was good to go back when they were older.

It was last minute decision but we were lucky enough to get accommodation on Chevron Island and it was for the week including Christmas Day.  We had so much fun we actually enquired to see if we could stay for a second week but unfortunately it was booked out.

This photo of John and Jaidyn was taken on 22 Dec 2009 at Movie World. It also happened to be our 14th wedding anniversary.  What a day!

Of course we spent the whole time exploring all there was to see and do in the park but the guys absolutely loved the Wild West Falls Adventure Ride.  I actually lost count of how many times they went on it.  The park was surprisingly quiet that day so they were allowed to remain on the ride and go around a second, third, fourth time. LOL

Tahlia decided to join the guys and we bought the souvenir photo of that ride which showed a very terrified girl. Needless to say she only went once! I was too busy taking photos to go on the ride (and that’s the excuse I stuck too!).

I will always treasure our two family holidays to Queensland. So many great memories of days filled with fun, laughter and happiness.
