This Day in History v. 17

Happy Australia Day!!!!!!!

This boy is one of the many many many reasons I love the British and Australians. We conviently lived down the street from The Walkabout, an Australia themed restaurant. Oh if those walls could talk, Hannah and I would be in some serious serious trouble. All we had to do if we wanted a free drink or two was drop it like it was hot in the middle of the dancefloor and the boys would flock to us. It was ridic really. British girls really had nothing on us. Awkward British flailing dances never hold a flame to slutty American dances.
According to the web:
Australia Day, 26 January, is the anniversary of the arrival of the First Fleet of 11 convict ships from Great Britain, and the raising of the Union Jack at Sydney Cove by its commander Captain Arthur Phillip, in 1788.
On Australia Day, over half of the nation’s population of 21 million attend either an organised community event, or get together with family and friends with the intention of celebrating our national day. Many more spend the public holiday relaxing with family and friends.
Yet Australia Day is much more than barbeques and fireworks. It is more than another public holiday. It is more than the pride and excitement of new citizens who call themselves Australian for the first time on 26 January after being conferred citizenship.

At its core, Australia Day is a day driven by communities, and the celebrations held in each town, suburb or city – unified by the celebration of what’s great about Australia and being Australian – are the foundation of its ongoing success.
Who needs an excuse to party? Not us. We're more than willing to celebrate Australian history!

Some good ole Australian boys out celebrating.

I do believe these girls are trouble makers...

Its so cold when we get home, we have to warm our feet against the heaters.
