The Tim Tam Slam

Day two of our Sydney training started earlier. We hustled over to the training venue and set up all of our materials. My friend Jeanette, who just happened to be one of our participants, helped us out and recorded participant responses.

We asked the participants to identify barriers to family engagement and then had them vote with stickers on which ones they should use to brainstorm solutions.

We also took suggestions for sightseeing options.

The day was a smashing success! Afterwards we said goodbye to our friends.

And got photo bombed by our good friend Cheryl (a better job than the queen, by the way!)

Then we dropped our bags at the hotel and headed out to explore the city. The first stop was the Queen Victoria Shops to pick up a charming little travel book tweed spotted the other day. We popped into Swatch and Jenni found a watch with sprinkles and one with polka dots. I bought a red one. We wandered out and walked through the Sydney Arcade.

There is definitely no shortage of shopping options in Sydney!

We decided to walk to Chinatown for dinner.

The coconut milk was fantastic and so was the food.

We took the long way back to the hotel but still didn’t see any kangaroo pizza.

The evening ended with a Tim Tam Slam, like every evening should.
