It was off to the Roma Street parklands in Brisbane today for GAP's annual Christmas party. It was a very warm day and we were under some lovely shade trees in the park. There were heaps of activities on which included face painting, trivia competitions, a sausage sizzle, longest tail and biggest/smallest dog competitions as well as a BBQ and GAP merchandise for sale.
Mum was on duty in the welcome tent and Dad was cooking at the BBQ so it was up to Freddy and I to check out the activities and report back. I hope you like the photos!
