No 'que' in the last sentence

In the last sentence, why is there no 'que'. Someone else asked but there's no response.

Hi Erumu,

 "What a beautiful day we had!"   --> We had a beautiful day.  Subject "we", verb "had", object "day"

French "Quelle belle journée nous avons passée"   -- Why?   The direct object "journée" now appears before the verb and the past participle of passer with avoir has to agree, therefore "passée"; there is no requirement for "que" in this construction.

Does this help?
