And at the same wedding, here are Gran and Grandad with all their grandchildren, and most of our partners as well.
This is Simon and Grandad at Perisher Blue in 2003. Gran and Grandad had come to stay with us in Canberra, and I think it was just ebfopre the ski season started. Anyway, most of the lifts weren't running, but there was quite a bit of snow, and some of it groomed, and the Ski Tube was running free. So we went up to Blue Cow and Grandad had a final ski, aged about 80, using Simon's equipment. It was a few years since they had skied, so he did have a few tumbles, but did well and was thrilled by it.
Lastly, here he is in our new spa, in January 2005. He wasn't well by this stage, but that didn't stop him joining in with everything and enjoying himself.
James loves looking at photos, in albums and on the computer, and can recognise most people he sees regularly. He's also starting to recognise photos of Grandad. I hope that when Gran gets back from South Africa in a few weeks, he'll be able to tell her 'Grandad' when he sees a photo of him.
