In Sydney, we visited my parents (Peter and Teresa) and my sister and her family. Peter and Teresa's 50th wedding anniversary was in September 2000, but the whole family including the grandkids couldn't get over.   So it was decided we should all get together in January 2001.  So my brother (Chris) and his family came up from Tasmania and we had a whole family get together.

Since sleeping space was obviously going to be limited, we stayed in a farm cabin near my parents place.  The farm had Alpacas and horses.

Here's a picture of the whole Smith "clan" taken at Windsor, NSW.

We also had some more formal family photos taken.  Here's some of the them:

We spent a day in Sydney city doing the "tourist thing".  Here's some pictures.

We managed to catch up with some old friends:
