SYDNEY {Part 1}

First Full Day in Sydney. Let the fun begin.

 ^^ Breakfast of champions. Sofitel Wentworth. So much food.

 ^^ Sofitel is heritage listed and is a curved building.

 ^^ I loved the Lobby. Every night they light 30 candles. Strong smell but look beautiful!

 ^^ We hit the walking trail at 8am.

 ^^ Cause Miss G is funny

 ^^ We arrived!

 ^^ The weather was PERFECT!

 ^^ Beautiful Botanic Gardens

 ^^ Art Gallery

 ^^ Can you see us

^^ Miss K was happy to see her first Picasso and Monet in real life.

 ^^ Queen Victoria Building.

 ^^ Zumbo. Love half price Tuesday!

 ^^ Rope wall was actually cement. Looks like we aren't the only people who've touched it ;)

^^ We went up there. 40 seconds in the elevator.

 ^^ The views were great

 ^^ Gallery of Modern Art. Came across three large blank white light boxes. I totally thought it was interactive. We took heaps of photos in all sorts of poses. Then 5 mins in videoed art started playing on the screens. whoops. Maybe it wasn't an interactive piece after all! Well we had fun. Ha.

^^ Cause old phone boxes are cool.

Our Day starts off with an amazing breakfast buffet at Sofitel Wentworth.
Every massive sightseeing day needs to start of with a big breakfast right!

We hit circular quay early in the morning.
The first things the girls said when we came across the Opera House?
OH. It's not as good as I thought it would be.
Ho Hum.

Whoops oh well. Crushed one dream of theirs. Maybe it was a bit too hyped up. It is just an old building after all. They did grow to love it over the four days I'm happy to report.

Botanic Gardens is celebrating its 200 Birthday this year. We had a nice stroll through the gardens, Mrs Macquaries chair, past the pool (from nemo the girls said), the art gallery.

After hours of walking it was time for Queen Victoria Building and Zumbo cakes for lunch.

When then went up the Sydney Tower and admired that gorgeous view up there.

Back to Hotel for late afternoon rest.

Then back to circular quay, The modern art gallery, the rocks

Dinner and Bed.

We walked for kilometers. We all had sore legs. I'm glad my girls are at the perfect age for lots of walking and sightseeing without (too much) complaining. They did great.

The weather was amazing while we were in Sydney. I'm sure I'm not the only one but since we don't holiday all that often I always freak out that either someone will be sick (and ruin our holiday) or the weather will be bad (and ruin our holiday). I'm always so relieved when neither happen. I feel like I'm holding my breath in the few days leading up to any holiday hoping everything will run smoothly.
