I find it truly amazing how so many people observe the day with teh respect and honour that it deserves.
Hubby's brass band plays at the wreath laying ceremony and last year I got the boys there too late - went in the wrong entrance and couldn't figure out how to get down to the lawn where they all were.... doh!
This year, I got them and a buddy there in plenty of time. They were as much part of the ceremony as anyone else. The band then goes back to teh RSA for drinks and fellowship. The RSA is keen on making it more family friendly so they were pleased to see so many kids there.
The boys enjoyed their coke and chippies (coke is reserved for special events and it was a first for Mr 4) ..... so much so that Mr 6 declared he thought this (the ceremony + the RSA) should be a new family tradition! Love it :)

Oh - and hubby has decided that making ANZAC biscuits should also be a tradition. LOL

Glad you had a great day - and how thoughtful of your hubby. Flowers are nice but to get those particular ones... awwww :)

I don't have a tradition for Anzac Day and I have never attended a Dawn Service, but I want to. The Last Post always makes me cry. I would SO love to go to Gallipoli for a Dawn Service.

Awwweee...that was so sweet of Andy ! Lucky you, though I have no doubt that you deserved them. I bought Elliot these really cool white/green roses recently (yes, they actually looked green) and he didn't even say 'thank you' *roll eyes*.

How cool to have won your book, thank you !


We didn't do the Dawn Parade this year as we headed up north on Friday morning. But next year I would like to take both the boys, I think they will be old enough to understand.
