Now it is not often I post about something other than craft, but today is special.

Today is ANZAC day & I was lucky enough to have Mum & Dad visiting us in Roma.

The boys marched with Dad in the ANZAC Day parade.
Look how proud they are. (Dad is beside E)
 I never thought I'd see the day we would all be in the same place to see Dad march & for the boys to march with him.  

It was awesome & Mum  and I shed a tear or two.
The boys were able to wear the medals of their Great-Great Grandfathers who both fought in WWI and WWII.  E wore GG Grandfather Richer's medals & T wore GG Grandfather Blakey's medals. 

 They were proud and honoured to be permitted to march with these medals.

To all our service people.  THANK YOU!!
