ANZAC Day hasn't felt the same since Pop passed away, but it's still a special day and we always make sure that we go to the ANZAC march, not only for Pop but for all those who fought for our country.seeing Pop march. He always marched so proudly and always made us smile with his bow tie.

Harri got very quiet and I knew he was upset about something and just assumed he was missing Aaron and Noah. After the march he told me he was feeling sad because he was missing Pop.
Deloraine turned on the weather as usual and it started raining a little bit, just as the service started at the cenotaph.
I snapped a photo of Kobe who was being very reverent during one of the prayers. When he opened his eyes he saw that I was taking a photo and told me right off! He pointed his finger at me and told me that I should be shutting my eyes! Kobe was fascinated when I was telling him what ANZAC Day was about, and couldn't get his head around that people went to war, and that Pop was one of those who went.
My cute nephew Hugh and my cousin Ty's daughter, Nancy. Her Mum, Sam was in labour last ANZAC Day and she was born the next day.
It's so nice to see that there are still big crowds every year to the ANZAC march.
After the march we headed out to the Raspberry Farm to have lunch with my extended family. Lots of us got together to catch up with Aunty Marilyn and Uncle Howard while they were down from Queensland. Aunty Marilyn had brought down a lot of her old photos of Aaron and I from her albums for me to copy. Some of them are classics, so I'll have to post them at some stage as the boys love seeing them.
We had a lovely lunch and the boys were excited they coud have waffles and pancakes for lunch.
We took up about half of the restaurant.
It was lovely to be together with family on such a special and important day.
