Krystal turns sweet 17 today. She is celebrating her birthday today with her Mum at her Auntie Caroline’s in Sydney. We’ve seen Krystal already on Thursday to wish her a HAPPY BIRTHDAY. Lauren, our youngest granddaughter, turns 16 in June. So they are all growing up. Two of our grandsons have children of their own already. We have now three great-grandchildren and another one is on its way to be born around the time of my 8Oth birthday!
Today, on this special day for Krystal, I want to publish a few more photos that have Krystal in most of them.
We were at the top of Mt Keira. The photo is taken at the front of Mt Keira Restaurant. There are several outlooks on Mt Keira from where you can look down to Wollongong and surrounds. We were able to take Gaby up there with her wheelchair. Monika came along with us with little Krystal who wasn’t quite two yet. Gaby always loved to spend time with the family.
On Mother’s Day 2001 the whole family had met at Merrylands Bowling Club for lunch. Ilse was still with us on this day. After lunch we enjoyed some time in Central Park. It was a great day for all of us. 🙂

I've lived in Australia since 1959 together with my husband Peter. We have four children, eight grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. I started blogging because I wanted to publish some of my childhood memories. I am blogging now also some of my other memories. I like to publish some photos too as well as a little bit of a diary from the present time. Occasionally I publish a story with a bit of fiction in it. Peter, my husband, is publishing some of his stories under berlioz1935.wordpress.com

So nice to see Gaby again, Aunty!
Thanks for liking to see Gaby in pictures, Mary-Ann. Have a look at the following post that I just published: Some more great photos of Gaby to be seen there!
You have such a happy looking family – it’s great to be able to look back over the years and remember.
Being able to publish some of the pictures, Cat, does make the memories extra special! 🙂
Beautiful family pics Auntyuta.
Krystal is a beautiful girl, love the pic of Peter and the sunflowers.
I am surprised, Ian, that the grand-kids did grow up so quickly. Now we have the pleasure of seeing the great-grandchildren going from stage to stage in their development. It is so rewarding seeing them grow up like this, isn’t it? 🙂
My grandchildren are still so young, but I’m very aware of how quickly time passes. I’m sure you often think back to when your grandchildren were small. And how wonderful that you now have great-grandchildren. What a blessing, Uta. I enjoy the family photos. 🙂
True, Debra, it is a blessing that we do have great-grandchildren now. And yes, we often think back to when our grandchildren were small; also when our children were small! Thanks for commenting, Debra. 🙂
