Spring Family Barbeque: Heaven on a Stick (or in a Bun)

By Alison Reynolds

 

ali's%20phone%20001.jpgWe suffered a week of will it? or won’t it? It didn’t and we were blessed with absolutely beautiful weather for the Spring Family BBQ held on the plush turf of the Australian Embassy garden on 26th April. Even the previous day’s downpour couldn’t dampen spirits or the grass enough to prevent everyone from spreading their picnic blankets in the shade of the trees in anticipation of a great afternoon. They then settled down to chat with friends and family while supping back the beers, bubblies and wines chilled for consumption courtesy of the hard working and never tiring volunteers. Even the Oz Soc President made himself useful while his family enjoyed the proceedings.

All the while there was the obligatory atmospheric smoke wafting across the gardens bringing with it the delightful smells of the toils of our truly wonderful Tongmasters. Added to the delicious cooked morsels were the fabulous salads and trimmings to fill your plate with ‘Good Old Aussie BBQ Fare’. ali's%20phone%20006.jpgMuch to the children’s delight there was ice-cream and fairy bread for afters – apologies to all the ‘little children’ who missed out!

After all this lovely food, the adults sank further into the shade and the children ran off their sugar rushes.  The latter was helped by a selection of games: bubbles, pirate ships, traditional egg and lime races, sack races and the ubiquitous wheelbarrow and piggy back races. All in all a great Family Day out enjoyed by everyone. It was especially satisfying for the organizers to see a goodly number of grown-ups without any small children!!
