Very fun day! The Spurgeon children arrived ready to give Ailish lots of lovin' (Aunt Giselle & Uncle Jeff too). It was precious to see how attentive they were to their new cousin. Ailish responded with tons of smiles. For lunch we went to Austin Park & Pizza - a kid's dream, a pizza buffet all day long with all the pizza & drinks you want.

... An English girl and some guys from Holland and Canada as well as a couple of mandatory Aussies. I was introduced to 'Four Loco' - a type of disgusting energy drink that was punching in at 13% alcohol content.
