|His little mind was blown|
We had originally intended to meet our friend to watch the Boxing Day test, but spent the evening with Cam's family instead. Our friend's enjoyment of the previous night's event was evident when we met him to watch the second day of cricket at the MCG. Wombie has decided that he enjoys cricket or at least he enjoys the atmosphere. I was very thankful we weren't in the sun all day.
|Always making friends|
Our friend was having a New Years party at his apartment close to the CBD. They ran out of propane for the BBQ so we had to go for a walk to get more. It was a great party and we had a great view of the fireworks. The night ended not-so-well when a friend of a friend of friend misinterpreted my concern for his well-being as an invitation to grope me. Luckily Chris and Cam were more than happy to tell him off.
Ever since we met, I've mentioned to Cam that we should go to the zoo. (He even lived one train stop away) Finally after 2.5 years we made it to the zoo. Sadly we made it there too late to see the wombats awake, but Wombie was still excited. We made a trip to the animal sanctuary later a few days later, but their wombats were asleep as well.
The weather was a bit cooler than seasonal, but that proved to be a good thing when the 40 degree weather returned. I guess we couldn't really complain since Toronto was suffering from a 'polar vortex' at the time. A few days after we went to Melbourne, an ice storm hit Toronto and surrounding area that left many people without power over Christmas. It was very nice to be enjoying a beer in the sun and we took advantage of that every chance we had.
