Going to the Night Noodle Markets in Hyde Park, part of the annual Sydney International Food Festival was high on our list of priorities for this week, and I'm proud to say, mission accomplished!
Dumplings, noodles, and various other delicious edibles were aplenty. We sampled our usual dim sum favorites and closed the night out at the Serendipity Ice Cream stall. It was all good.

This was the walk back to the car-- right after my four year old nailed my husband in the balls. If you look closely you can see his hand strategically placed in the post-balls-injury-position.
If you're still reading after all that testicle drama, here are some outtakes from our weekend in the Blue Mountains with our friends, including My Favorite Australian.
We locked the kids in there and went for lunch. Just kidding people.
Love on the ZigZag Railway.
Anytime is the right time for bubbles yo.
A ginormous green-eyed fly sitting on my leg, not fun.
We went on the Cableway at Scenic World, where you can get your jollies standing on a glass-bottom floor while crossing the valley.

I used to marvel at how we could live in such a beautiful city and have these gorgeous mountains only ninety minutes away. But after the spew-fest clinic my carsick five year old put on during our return car ride home, I realize now-- it's about seventy five minutes further than we're comfortable with.
The good news is, we totally avoided the Blue Mountains Nazi Shrine, cause that's was a real buzz kill on our last trip there.
A new calendar of annual events in Sydney should be up on my sidebar soon-- if you have blog posts about past festivals or events in Sydney that you've written about and/or photographed and want me to link to please let me know. Cheers y'all.
