I can't believe it has taken me so long to finish blogging about my parents' visit to Australia. They visited in July. JULY! I'm so behind! At any rate, here's where I last left off:
Sights & Sounds From Oz
Beaches & Boats - 1770
Evolution of a Sunset - 1770
Kangaroos, Koalas, & Crocodiles.. Oh My!
Boomerangs, Didgeridoos, and Caves
Tondoon Botanic Gardens
I was really excited that my parents had chosen Melbourne as the big Australian city that they wanted to visit while in Australia. Melbourne has been one of my favorite cities that we've visited in Australia, so I was glad to have an excuse to go back! HERE is a link to my first Melbourne trip back in January.
David and I had such a great time in Melbourne when we visited and loved everything we did and saw, so I decided to pretty much do most of the same things with my parents on their visit. Why mess with success, right? We spent one full day exploring the city, one day on a tour of The Great Ocean Road, and one day visiting Phillip Island and the Penguin Parade.
On our day exploring the city, I was excited to show my parents everything I had loved so much about Melbourne the last time I was there. We started off at the Queen Victoria Market. This market is totally overwhelming, but totally awesome at the same time. There is produce, meat, cheese, souvenirs, etc. as far as the eye can see!

And of course, we had to spend some time wandering the alley ways that are famous for their street art. We were even lucky enough to see some street artists at work!
